All the shades of Titus have been inspired by the Yorkshire surroundings, blending together perfectly for a stunning palette of colour. For example, ‘Parkin’ is inspired by the traditional Yorkshire cake of the same name - a delicious blend of Treacle and Ginger. ‘Eccup’ is named after a local reservoir, a beauty spot which is home to a colony of rare Red Kite birds.
Titus is spun for us in Yorkshire by Laxtons, a spinning mill that’s been going since 1907 and is now run by the fourth generation, the founders’ great-grandson James Laxton.
If you want a beautiful yarn that combines British authenticity with true luxury, then Titus is the yarn for you!
A delicious blend of Wensleydale and Bluefaced Leicester wool, combined with a touch of magical British Alpaca in homage to philanthropist and Yorkshire mill owner Sir Titus Salt. This luxurious yet authentic combination is also reflected in the shade range: deep, rich colours that evoke images and memories of a land which has such strong historic connections to wool and wool manufacturing. Titus is spun in Yorkshire.
For us, this is a dream come true: a luxurious local yarn with homely colours that supports our local industries. It makes us very happy. We hope it makes you happy too.
