Sign ups are now open for the May 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.
May Van Gogh Yarn Box – Wheatfield With Crows
May’s Van Gogh Yarn Box will be based upon ‘Wheatfield With Crows’. Painted in 1890, it is commonly cited as Van Gogh’s final work, created in the last weeks of his life. It is currently held in the collection of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
Boxes will be available to purchase until Friday May 17th and will be posted out at the end of the month.
Take a look at the product gallery to see January’s Van Gogh Yarn Box which took its inspiration from ‘The Starry Night’, February’s Van Gogh Yarn Box which took its inspiration from ‘Irises’ and March’s Van Gogh Yarn Box which was inspired by ‘Sunflowers’.
