Baa Baa Brighouse has decided that because, like most, we feel unable to influence social, political or economic change in any significant way, it can instead take care of its own very small corner of the world.

In 2019, we will be releasing a monthly hand dyed charity yarn where £3 of every skein sold will go to a chosen charity (this too will change on a month by month basis to enable us to help more deserving causes).

Our chosen charity for July will be Stonewall, which supports the LGBTQ+ community.

Our limited edition yarn, ‘Knit A Rainbow’, has been released as we reflect on Pride Month 2019 and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. It is a hand painted rainbow yarn with added black and brown speckling/smudges.

The 100% British Bluefaced Leicester DK yarn is available now, exclusively from Baa Baa Brighouse and can be purchased throughout the month of July.
