Sign ups are now open for the November 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.
November Van Gogh Yarn Box – Vase With Poppies (1886)
November’s Van Gogh Yarn Box will be based upon ‘Vase With Poppies (1886)’. The painting is held by the Wadsworth Atheneum in Connecticut. Its authenticity was called into question in 1990 but it was later verified as a genuine Van Gogh after being sent to Amsterdam for analysis by the Van Gogh Museum.
Boxes will be available to purchase until Friday November 22nd 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’, March’s Van Gogh Yarn Box which was inspired by ‘Sunflowers’, April’s Van Gogh Yarn Box which was based on ‘The Night Cafe’, May’s Van Gogh Yarn Box which was inspired by ‘Wheatfield With Crows’, June’s Van Gogh Yarn Box which was based on ‘Flowering Plum Orchard, July’s Van Gogh Yarn Box which took its inspiration from ‘Almond Blossom’, August’s Van Gogh Yarn Box which was based on Seascape and September’s offering which was inspired by ‘Wheatfield With Cypresses’.
