Though we’re keeping our doors closed during May, we’re still virtually open for mail orders, and we want to offer something fun during this uncertain time. Throughout May, we’ll have a special sale each week – 15% off a featured yarn, our Sale of the Week!
Our next Sale of the Week is 15% off Baa Ram Ewe Titus, from May 1 – 7!
Titus is a fingering weight blend of alpaca, wensleydale, and bluefaced leicester wools, sourced and spun entirely in the UK. We’re proud to have been the first US stockist of the stuff, back in 2012 when it came in just one color. Clara Parkes described it as having “the drape and softness of a sleeping cat,” which captured our imagination almost as much as the story of the yarn. Titus is an attempt to revive Britain’s diminishing textile industry by relying on UK-sourced wools and UK yarn manufacturers. Considering North Carolina’s own textile history, this story resonated, and it wasn’t long before we had boxes of Titus coming into the shop. Since then, Titus has been warmly embraced by knitters, crocheters, and weavers all over the world, and the palette has expanded considerably.
Each 100 gram skein has 350 yards, enough for a hat, cowl, or pair of mitts. Usually, skeins are $29 each; at 15% off, they’re $24.65 each.
We’ve seen so many beautiful garments and accessories knit in Titus over the years – here are a few ideas:
“Carpino,” by Carol Feller – a mesh-lace pullover using 3 – 5 skeins of Titus
“Bousta Beanie,” by Gudrun Johnston – a colorwork hat using 1 skein each of Titus in 3 colors
“Whitlam Cowl,” by Jo Spreckly – a lace cowl using 1 skein of Titus
“Minetta,” by Kirsten Kapur – a cabled cardigan using 3 – 6 skeins of Titus
“Dexter,” by Isabell Kraemer – a raglan cardigan using 3 – 5 skeins of Titus
“Color Affection,” by Veera Välimäki – a striped short-row shawl using 1 skein each of Titus in 3 colors
