baa ram ewe's Titus is a stunning, luxurious natural 4 ply with a Yorkshire accent. We've always been passionate about showcasing the rich variety of British sheep breeds and yarns that exist and often daydreamed about what our perfect yarn would look and feel like, and it’s just like this! We wanted the base of our yarn to be a celebration of the quintessential Yorkshire sheep, the Wensleydale.
With its beautiful long Rastafarian locks, this gives our yarn a gorgeous silky drape often hard to find in wool. We then blended it with the finest of all the British sheep breeds, the Bluefaced Leicester, and added another little Yorkshire surprise, which gave us the inspiration for its name.
Our shades have also been inspired by our Yorkshire surroundings, blending together perfectly for a stunning palette of colour. Our 'Eccup' is named after a local reservoir, a beauty spot which is home to a colony of rare Red Kites. And our 'Coal' celebrates an industry that, just like wool production, was central to the fortunes of Yorkshire but has sadly now declined.
Titus is spun for us in Yorkshire by Laxtons, a spinning mill that’s been going since 1907 and is now run by the fourth generation, the founders’ great-grandson James Laxton.
If you want a beautiful yarn that combines British authenticity with true luxury, then Titus is the yarn for you!
For us, this is a dream come true: a luxurious local yarn with homely colours that supports our local industries. It makes us very happy. We hope it makes you happy too.
