HAPPY YORKSHIRE DAY! OUR TITUS IS BACK!

Happy Yorkshire Day! We have something a little bit special to celebrate and we thought today was the perfect day to launch it.

baa ram ewe is 10 years old! We started as a local yarn shop in Leeds in the beautiful county of Yorkshire and are now the proud creators of luxury British yarns including Titus.

To celebrate our first decade we're spinning a special batch of Titus, our first ever baa ram ewe yarn, in 12 classic shades from our signature palette. You can pre-order yours now. To go with it we’ve created a brand new FREE pattern, Smithies Cowl. Named after Sir Titus Salt’s mother, Grace Smithies, this simple lace cowl is a quick cosy knit needing just one skein of Titus to make. Click through to Ravelry here to download.

Join us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter for the next ten days to celebrate designs past and present that use our Titus. Tag us #baarameweknits and #baaramewetitus when you're sharing your knits and projects made in Titus, we'd love to see and share them.

All the shades have been inspired by our Yorkshire surroundings, blending together perfectly for a stunning palette of colour. For example, ‘Parkin’ is inspired by the traditional Yorkshire cake of the same name - a delicious blend of Treacle and Ginger. ‘Eccup’ is named after a local reservoir, a beauty spot which is home to a colony of rare Red Kite birds.

If you want a beautiful yarn that combines British authenticity with true luxury, then Titus is the yarn for you!

Pre-orders will be posted out the week commencing Mon 19th August.
