Sign ups are now open for the December Van Gogh Themed Yarn Box!
New for 2019, Baa Baa Brighouse is celebrating the paintings of post impressionist Dutch Master, Vincent Van Gogh. Each month we will take our inspiration from one of his most famous artworks and produce a hand dyed yarn interpretation. Each yarn box will contain 200g of limited edition British Bluefaced Leicester Baa Baa Brew DK inspired by that month’s painting along with a selection of Vincent inspired extras.
