NEW YARN: Pip Colourwork

Interested in knitting a gorgeous fair-isle sweater in under $40? We love these 25g of non-superwash British Yorkshire-spun 100% wool in gorgeous heathered colourway, and Baa Ram Ewe‘s Pip Colourwork mini balls are an amazing way to play with colour!





At $5.50/ball you can pick and choose from their selection of 14 colourways and knit up a storm if you match them with our home-grown Briggs & Little Sport, a robust and affordable yarn from the East Coast.


From the Baa Ram Ewe website: The rich tradition of stranded knitting in Shetland has always been admired and in recent years has grown in popularity but perhaps less well known is the history of Yorkshire colourwork, in particular that of the Knitters of the Dales. Designers and Yorkshire Knitting historians such as Penelope Hemingway, Ann Kingstone and Angharad Thomas celebrate this tradition in much of their work, and we thought it was about time we got on board and created our own dedicated Yorkshire colourwork yarn with British wool spun and dyed in Yorkshire. And the name? Pip comes from the traditional Swaledale ‘Yan Tan Thethera’ method of sheep counting: Yan (one), Tan (Two), Tether (Three), Mether (Four) and Pip- our Fifth baa ram ewe yarn!
