Simply Crochet - - HOOKED -

Have you seen Baa Baa Brig­house’s Mulier For­tis yarn (Latin for ‘strong women’)? They've cre­ated eight shades named af­ter con­trib­u­tors to sci­ence, medicine, pol­i­tics, civil rights and more. Ada, Malala, Rosa, Marie, Amelia, Valentina, Em­me­line and Florence are 4ply Bri­tish wool yarns, spun and hand- dyed in York­shire. The col­lec­tion was cre­ated by Baa Baa Brig­house’s Elaine Jinks-Turner. “I wanted to cel­e­brate the achieve­ments of women from all na­tion­al­i­ties and dis­ci­plines,” ex­plains Elaine. “The Women's March brought peo­ple to­gether for change, re­gard­less of where they were from, and I hope our new yarn goes some way to­wards re­mind­ing peo­ple of that.” £16 per 100g at www.baabaabrig­house.co.uk
