Titus is stunning, luxurious natural 4 ply yarn that blends the beautiful long locks of the Wensleydale in a natural grey shade with the finest of all British Breeds, the Bluefaced Leicester, and then added another little Yorkshire surprise which gave the inspiration for its name.

Sir Titus Salt was a Yorkshire born wool manufacturer who became fed up with the smoke and pollution emanating from the mills and factory chimneys and decided to build a new mill on the outskirts of Shipley town. He opened his mill in 1853, and soon after houses, bathhouses, an institute, hospital, almshouses and churches were built for its workers, which became the village of Saltaire, now a World Heritage Site and well worth a visit if you haven’t been.

But this wasn’t Sir Titus’ only achievement. In 1836, Titus came upon some bales of Alpaca in a warehouse in Liverpool and, after taking some samples away to experiment, came back and bought the consignment. Although he wasn’t the first person in England to work with the fibre, he was the creator of the lustrous and subsequently hugely fashionable cloth called ‘alpaca’, which contributed massively to his success as a manufacturer.

So, we’ve added 30% of the finest, softest natural fawn UK Alpaca to our yarn which adds a little bit of magic our wonderful wool.
