Sign ups are now open for the January Themed Yarn Box!
In 2017, Baa Baa Brighouse introduced monthly themed yarn boxes featuring limited edition Baa Baa Brew colourways. Boxes take their inspiration from popular culture including film, television, theatre, art, music and literature. Each box contains 100g of Baa Baa Brew hand dyed DK British Bluefaced Leicester yarn in a brand new variegated colourway along with a contrasting 25g mini skein of Baa Baa Brew inspired by that month’s theme. Boxes also contain a host of other goodies based around the theme.
January Themed Yarn Box – Star Wars
It’s hard to believe that it has been just over a year since the untimely death of Carrie Fisher. Loved the world over for her role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars saga, Carrie was not only an actress but a prolific writer and Hollywood script doctor. She battled with bipolar disorder and drug addiction and was given an Outstanding Lifetime Achievement Award in Cultural Humanism from Harvard in 2016 noting “her forthright activism and outspokenness about addiction, mental illness and agnosticism have advanced public discourse on these issues with creativity and empathy”. To mark a year since her passing and the release of the latest instalment, ‘Star Wars: The Lasat Jedi’, join us as we rewind to ‘a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away’ and celebrate the greatness that was, is and always will be, Carrie Fisher.
Love yarn? Love Star Wars? Love Carrie Fisher? Then the January Themed Yarn Box is a must for you! The box will contain 100g of Baa Baa Brew DK British Bluefaced Leicester yarn in a limited edition colourway inspired by Carrie Fisher, along with a contrasting 25g Star Wars mini skein of Baa Baa Brew. Boxes will also contain a number of Star Wars related extras. Boxes will be available to purchase until Friday January 26th, 2018 and will be posted out at the end of the month.
