Baa Baa Brighouse has decided that because, like most, we feel unable to influence social, political or economic change in any significant way, it can instead take care of its own very small corner of the world.

In 2019, we will be releasing a monthly hand dyed charity yarn where £3 of every skein sold will go to a chosen charity (this too will change on a month by month basis to enable us to help more deserving causes).

Our chosen charity for March will be Marie Curie UK, a charity which offers care and support to those suffering from a terminal illness and their families.

‘Marie Curie’, a 100% British Bluefaced Leicester DK yarn, is available now, exclusively from Baa Baa Brighouse and can be purchased throughout March to coincide with the charity’s Great Daffodil Appeal.

Take a look at the product gallery to see January’s Charity Yarn, ‘Tics Don’t Define Me’, which raised £45 for Tourettes Action and ‘YoungMinds’, our February charity yarn, which raised £21 for YoungMinds.
