What do coal, a reservoir and a flower have in common? They're all inspiration behind our yarn shades! Titus is our oldest yarn, and takes its inspiration from Yorkshire; from the colours we choose to the fibres we use. We thought we'd dive into the inspiration behind the shades now it's back in stock.
Along with wool, coal was once the lifeblood of many parts of Yorkshire, powering industry, feeding communities and warming homes. Pictured above in the Dexter Cardigan by Isabell Kraemer, Titus Coal is a dark grey that really shows off the sheen from the lustrous Wensleydale Longwool fibre in the blend.
The beautiful Eccup reservoir is the largest area of water in West Yorkshire, and is home to a growing population of rare Red Kites. Titus Eccup is pictured above in a baa ram ewe team favourite pattern; the Aestlight Shawl by Gudrun Johnston.
The white rose is the symbol of Yorkshire. Inspired by the simple Dog Rose and originating in the heralds of the House of York to reflect purity, joy and glory. Pictured above in the pretty Winterly sweater by Suvi Simola with a section of Bramley Baths across the yoke, the natural ecru shade of Titus White Rose is the base for all our other shades.
All the shades of Titus have been inspired by the Yorkshire surroundings, blending together perfectly for a stunning palette of colour.
