Sign ups are now open for the January Claude Monet Themed Yarn Box!
Following on from the success of our 2019 Vincent Van Gogh inspired series of yarn boxes, in 2020 we will be celebrating the paintings of the French impressionist painter and founder of the art movement, Claude Monet. 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 Monet inspired extras.
