“Titus” is a fingering weight yarn, sourced, spun and dyed in Yorkshire, by BaaRamEwe.
That area, and the UK, has always been very strong in the textile industry. Building on that woolly tradition, local knowledge and sheep breeds, BaaRamEwe have been dreaming of and designing their very own yarn, a truly british yarn that supports the local farmers and industry: Titus is an amazing fingering weight blend of Wensleydale and Bluefaced Leicester wool, both very typical british sheep breeds. To this blend, alpaca is added to make it really luxurious! Amazing!
"Titus" is available here in 12 earthy colours, which will mix and match beautifully. This is a yarn that is great for sturdy knits like mitten and hats, cardigans and shawls. Very suitable for colourwork or cable knitting.
