A selection of beautiful hand dyed British Bluefaced Leicester by Sylvan Tiger Yarn has arrived at Baa Baa Brighouse.
As the very first stockist of this gorgeous home-grown Yorkshire yarn, we’re very excited to show off the beautiful colourways Katie, owner, of Sylvan Tiger has come up with.
From beautiful sea greens to luscious lavender, vibrant pinks to the golden shades of Autumn, we’re sure you’ll find a yarn you love.
Katie said: “I use wool sourced from British suppliers and where possible from British sheep, processed and spun in Britain and natural dyes mostly in extract form which gives better repeatability of colourways and allows me to dye year-round. Every once in a while I’ll have ‘Limited Editions’ dyed with material I’ve carefully harvested myself from my garden or local environment.
“My inspiration for colours and combinations often comes from my local landscapes of Yorkshire, the North York Moors, Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. I particularly enjoy exploiting the natural PH sensitivities of the natural dyes to create gentle variations in colour.
“My yarns can be used for a variety of work including knitting, crochet, spinning, and felting.”
Plans are afoot at Baa Baa Brighouse to team up with Sylvan Tiger Yarn to bring you a brand new Baa Baa Brighouse Yarn Club but in the meantime, take a look at our beautiful new Sylvan Tiger Yarn stock and treat yourself to a hank or two!
