Sign ups are now open for the March 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, literature or notable historical events. 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.
March Themed Yarn Box – The Hitchhiker’s Guide To the Galaxy
To mark the 40th anniversary of the comedy series, The Hitchhiker’s Guide To the Galaxy, we are celebrating the science fiction phenomenon with a specially themed yarn box. Created by Douglas Adams and originally broadcast on BBC Radio 4, The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy has since gained cult status with subsequent novels, stage shows, comic books, a TV series, a video game and a feature film. Join Arthur Dent as we take a trip through the Galaxy on a yarny adventure with Ford Prefect, Trillian, Zaphod Beeblebrox and Marvin, the Paranoid Android.
Don’t panic! The March Themed Yarn Box will contain 100g of Baa Baa Brew DK British Bluefaced Leicester yarn in a limited edition colourway inspired by the The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy, along with a contrasting 25g mini skein of Baa Baa Brew. Boxes will also contain a number of related extras. Boxes will be available to purchase until Friday March 23rd, 2018 and will be posted out at the end of the month.
“The hooloovoo is a super-intelligent shade of the colour blue. One was seen as a prism for Zaphod Beeblebrox’s address upon stealing the Heart of Gold. On certain special occasions, such as the aforementioned Beeblebrox address, they will be refracted into a free-standing prism. The hooloovoo demonstrate their dissatisfaction with the Universe by holding their breath until they turn a deep purple.” – Douglas Adams
