An update from baa ram ewe

Greetings from Yorkshire! It’s been over two weeks since we closed our crowdfunder campaign and we are pleased to announce that we raised a total of £16,020! This is a huge sum of money that will be pivotal in the survival of our business and we’re already in the stages of planning new launches and collaborations for 2021. Of course we want to thank all of you for your support and generosity. We started 2021 unsure of how long our business would continue to survive in the current climate, but your support has given us the opportunity to get our little business back on its feet and back at what we do best, creating unique and inspiring products! 

As some of you may be aware, the timescale for yarn production can take up to 4-6 months, so while we are doing everything we can to get our shelves restocked, it is something that will take time to do. We’ve also arrived at the conclusion that relying solely on our yarn lines in this current climate is both risky and unsustainable, so while it is something we want to keep doing, it is also important that we diversify the business. As our first step, we have given our Little Yorkshire shop a refresh and have decided to continue stocking local artisan products for the foreseeable future. In the past couple of weeks we’ve worked hard to get some beautiful stock in our shop including luxury wool blankets, embroidery, cross stitch and needle felting kits. We are also in the process of having a mini restock of some yarn, so keep an eye out on our website.

While we have a long road ahead before our business will be completely back to normal, we hope you will continue to support us on our journey. For all the negatives of the past year, one huge positive is that we have really enjoyed connecting with our customers and hearing how much you value our business. We will let you know of new launches in the near future, but in the meantime stay safe and happy knitting!

Discover Stranded Knitting in our Workshop!

Stranded Colourwork Knitting Workshop

10am-3pm, 30 January 2020, Parkhill Business Centre

Discover stranded knitting at baa ram ewe Central. During the course of the day we'll be working on a lovely fingerless mitten pattern to help explore the skill of stranded knitting. This will include how to hold the yarn, tips and tricks for achieving perfect tension along with vital finishing information to make all your projects look professional.

We will be using Pip Colourwork in your choice of colours and the Pressed Flower pattern by Meredith Ramirez. Included will also be a goodie bag with lots of lovely woolly bits.

There will be an opportunity to buy your favourite baa ram ewe items from our pop-up shop with an exclusive workshop discount on the day.

Please note that you will need to know how to knit in the round for this workshop. You will also need to bring 2.75mm, 3mm & 3.25mm DPNs OR circular needles for magic loop. The size of the needle you use will be determined by the size of mitt you wish to make and your tension.

The course will run between 10am and 3pm so lunch and refreshments will be provided.

Book your place here.
