A chance to Yarn bomb one of Scotland’s top Heritage sites

On World Heritage Day, yarnbombers and guerrilla knitters will descend on New Lanark to cover as much of the Institute as possible in woollen yarn. In addition to a day of knitting, tea and Border Biscuits, the event will feature a variety of free activities, including a natural dyeing workshop and a “sheep to shawl” spinning talk.

Participants of all ages can either knit in advance and bring their creations, or use the colourful New Lanark woollen yarn which will be provided at the venue. If you can’t make it to the event, but would still like to contribute your knitting, the Dig It! 2017 team would love to hear from you. Contact info@digit2017.com for more information about the free yarnbombing kits (while supplies last).

Free tickets are now available here 

New Lanark is one of Scotland’s six UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and this event is part the nation-wide Scotland in Six celebrations on World Heritage Day.
