Drum roll please... Coming Soon... Titus!
If Titus is new to you... Titus is 100% British (50% Wensleydale | 30% UK Alpaca | 20% Bluefaced Leicester) and a fingering weight with 350yds/100gr:
After being voted Favourite British Yarn by Knit Now magazine as well as amazing reviews from designers, yarn experts and wool fans across the world, we are delighted to introduce our new Titus shade range.
We've retained the delicious blend of Wensleydale and Bluefaced Leicester wool, combined with a touch of magical UK Alpaca in homage to philanthropist and Yorkshire mill owner Sir Titus Salt. This luxurious yet authentic combination is also reflected in the new shade range: deep, rich colours that evoke images and memories of a land which has such strong historic connections to wool and wool manufacturing.
The new range has been spun in Yorkshire too, by the fantastic West Yorkshire Spinners of Keighley.
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.
In case you're wondering what a Wensleydale looks like...
Yup, he's pretty awesome, right?!
