New for 2017, Baa Baa Brighouse is introducing monthly themed yarn boxes featuring limited edition Baa Baa Brew colourways. Boxes will take their inspiration from popular culture including film, television, theatre, art, music and literature. Each box will contain 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 will also contain a host of other goodies based around the theme.
May Themed Yarn Box – Shakespeare
April 23rd marks Shakespeare Day in the United Kingdom so is a fitting date for us to launch our May Themed Yarn Box based on the Collected Works of the bard himself. Some believe he was born on April 23rd, although birth dates were not generally recorded in Elizabethan England. What we do know is that he died on April 23, 1616 and is credited with writing 37 plays and 154 sonnets, influencing the development of literature and the English language more than any other playwright before or since.
So, will it be “fair Verona, where we lay our scene” or will we be visiting Elsinore to find out if something is “rotten in the state of Denmark”? We can guarantee that you won’t think our May Themed Yarn Box is Much Ado About Nothing! Let us take you on a journey with some of Shakespeare’s best loved heroes and heroines as we explore his classic comedies and tragedies through exquisite hand dyed yarn.
Love yarn? Love Shakespeare? Then the May 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 the Collected Works of Shakespeare, along with a contrasting 25g mini skein of Baa Baa Brew. Boxes will also contain a number of Shakespeare related extras. Boxes will be available to purchase until Monday May 22nd, 2017 and will be posted out on Tuesday May 30th , 2017.
