Sign ups are now closed for the October Claude Monet Themed Yarn Box
Following on from the success of our 2019 Vincent Van Gogh inspired series of yarn boxes, in 2020 we will be celebrating the paintings of the French impressionist painter and founder of the art movement, Claude Monet. 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 Monet inspired extras.
October Claude Monet Yarn Box – Leicester Square At Night
October’s Claude Monet Yarn Box will be based on Leicester Square At Night, painted in 1901, when Monet was considerably wealthier and was able to stay at the Savoy during visits to London, not far from the bright lights and bustling activity of Leicester Square.
Please view our Product Gallery to see images of our January Claude Monet Yarn Box which was based on Houses of Parliament, Sunset (1903), our February Claude Monet Yarn Box which was inspired by A Pathway in Monet’s Garden at Giverny (1902) and September’s box which took its inspiration from The Water Lily Pond Japanese Bridge (1900).
Sign ups are now closed. Boxes will be posted out at the end of the month.
