Sign ups are now open for the December 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.
January Van Gogh Yarn Box – The Starry Night
January’s Van Gogh Yarn Box will be based upon ‘The Starry Night’ . It was painted in June 1889 and depicts the view from the east-facing window of the troubled painter’s asylum room at Saint-Remy-de-Provence just before sunrise. It has been in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York since 1941.
Boxes will be available to purchase until Friday January 18th and will be posted out at the end of the month.
