Graffitti Umbrella is hand-knitted using my hand-spun yarn. The yarn is made from 100% pure Jacob sheep fleece. Once the individual segments had been knitted, I then hand-dyed each one in a different pattern prior to assembling them.
If you are in Orkney this item can be seen and purchased at The Waterfront Gallery, Stromness.
I’m quite excited about adding my knitted umbrella to my textiles shop. My inspiration came from American textile designer Kelly Griffith, thank you Kelly. I trawled the second-hand shops in search of the right umbrella. Eventually I found it – rather sad, unloved and languishing in a corner. I soon got rid of it’s rather worn black covering and re-clothed it in its brand new hand-spun coat. What a transformation!
