Literary Greats Sock Yarn

Brand new from Baa Baa Brighouse is our Literary Greats Sock Yarn range inspired by the covers of Penguin Clothbound Classics books.

Each 100g skein is a unique hand dyed 100% British Bluefaced Leicester high twist 4 ply sock yarn based on a Penguin Clothbound Classic.

The first in our range is ‘Wuthering Heights’, taken from our Baa Baa Book Club. The second is ‘Jane Eyre’, the third is ‘The Tenant Of Wildfell Hall’ and the fourth is ‘Villette’.

The fifth is ‘Sense & Sensibility’, the sixth is ‘Pride & Prejudice’, the seventh is ‘Northanger Abbey’, the eighth is ‘Mansfield Park’, the ninth is ‘Persuasion’, the tenth is ‘Love & Friendship’, the eleventh is ‘Emma’, and the twelfth is ‘Sanditon’.

The thirteenth is ‘Mrs Dalloway’, the fourteenth is ‘Wide Sargasso Sea’, the fifteenth is ‘Lady Chatterley’s Lover’, the sixteenth is ‘Ulysses’ and the seventeenth is ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four’.

Literary Greats Sock Yarn is sumptuously soft and unlike our Baa Baa Book Club, forms part of a permanent and ever-growing range of yarns. It is also designed to complement our Literary Sock Sets.

You will also find a range of beautiful,  complementing semi-solid yarns in our Classic Characters Sock Yarn collection.
