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 here in Yorkshire. 

Pip Colourwork is a handy 25g size and knits to a standard 4 ply weight, with 126 yards on the ball. Like all our yarns it has a beautiful handle: soft and squishy yet with enough grip to bind the shades together. We’ve chosen 18 shades from our signature baa ram ewe palette to launch with which, as always, blend together beautifully.

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- the fifth baa ram ewe yarn!
