Yan Tan Tethera Yarn Club

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 February 2018 Yan Tan Tethera Yarn Club are now open!

New to the Yan Tan Tethera Yarn Club, but not to many of our customers, is Elaine Jinks-Turner, owner of Baa Baa Brighouse, based in West Yorkshire. Elaine will be our indie dyer for February and she is so excited to get started!

For the February Yan Tan Tethera Yarn Club, Elaine will take her inspiration from the image, ‘’Reflections On Riding Wood Reservoir”, by Shutterspot Photography. The picture was taken at Holme in Kirklees, West Yorkshire.

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, seeds, yarn, pin badges, buttons, keyrings, scented candles, bath bombs, handmade soaps, books and loose leaf tea – all sourced from Yorkshire based businesses.



Elaine will be using 100% British Bluefaced Leicester DK yarn for her project, giving approximately 225m of yarny goodness per 100g skein.

Sign ups for the February 2018 Yan Tan Tethera Yarn Club are now open and will close when all places have been filled. All yarn parcels will be posted out in early February.


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.
