Carnival of Resistance
President Donald Trump is due to arrive in the UK on Thursday (July 12th) for a state visit.
To coincide with his arrival and the mass protests expected up and down the country, we are proud to present our very own protest yarn – ‘Carnival of Resistance’.
We will be raising money for the American Civil Liberties Union with £3 of every skein sold being donated to the organisation. The ACLU aims to defend the rights of immigrant families in the US, particularly poignant when just this week the federal government missed a court imposed deadline to reunite more than 100 children under the age of five with their parents.
‘Carnival of Resistance’ is a 100% British Bluefaced Leicester DK yarn which is hand painted in Yorkshire, England. It is inscribed with the message ‘Stop Trump’, which when knitted up will create a variegated mix of carnival colours but you will know the message is there.
We hope you will support our initiative.
