Baa Baa Brighouse has teamed up with a number of Yorkshire based indie dyers to bring you the Yan Tan Tethera Yarn Club.
Sign up each month and you will receive an exclusive skein of quality Yorkshire yarn that has been sourced, spun and dyed locally by hand.
Our dyers will be taking their inspiration from photographs of the Yorkshire landscape and nature by Gary Turner of Shutterspot Photography.
Each dyer will use a different photograph guaranteeing that every monthly batch of yarn is beautiful and completely unique from the next.
The dyer will decide on the yarn most suited to the project but will aim to uphold our ethos of using only British breeds and Yorkshire yarns.
You can view previous yarns in the Yan Tan Tethera Archive

Sign ups for the April 2018 Yan Tan Tethera Yarn Club are now open!
Our indie dyer for the April Yan Tan Tethera Yarn Club will be Jaki Bogg of Hot Butter Yarns based in Skipton, North Yorkshire. Jaki is a well-known, talented textile artist who joined our team of indie dyers nearly three years ago.
For the April Yan Tan Tethera Yarn Club, Jaki will take her inspiration from the image, ‘Purple Haze’, by Shutterspot Photography. The picture, which depicts a riot of spring crocuses, was taken in the grounds of Dewsbury Minster – Mother Church of West Yorkshire at Rishworth Road, Dewsbury.
All Yan Tan Tethera Yarn Club subscriptions are presented in a gift box tied with satin ribbon and will include a copy of the inspiration photograph and a little complimentary Yorkshire gift from Baa Baa Brighouse.
Previous gifts have included scented lavender bags, bath truffles, sweets, notebooks, lip balm, compact mirrors, seeds, yarn, pin badges, buttons, keyrings, scented candles, bath bombs, handmade soaps, books, loose leaf tea and cakes – all sourced from Yorkshire based businesses.
Jaki is planning to use an aran twist yarn in 100g skeins made with 75% Bluefaced Leicester and 25% Masham for her project. Each skein will be approximately 160m.
Sign ups for the April 2018 Yan Tan Tethera Yarn Club are now open and will close as soon as all spaces are filled. All yarn parcels will be posted out in early April.
If you wish to participate in our lovely yarn club, simply purchase a subscription to receive a skein of exclusive yarn. If you would like more than one skein, simply add an extra subscription to your basket.
