Female Bodily Autonomy
‘Female Bodily Autonomy’ is our latest protest yarn and is our response to President Donald Trump’s 2019 State visit to the UK this June.
It is also an expression of our disgust at the erosion of women’s rights in America under his presidency, particularly those relating to a woman’s liberty to choose whether or not to have an abortion.
A fuller discussion of this can be found on our blog.
£3 of every skein of ‘Female Bodily Autonomy’ sold will go to the American Civil Liberties Union, an organisation that is seeking to challenge the current abortion bans in the US.
Each skein is hand painted with the words ‘Female Bodily Autonomy’, which will give a lovely variegated effect when knitted up. The colours used are designed to complement those used in its sister yarn, ‘Lactose Intolerant‘, which combines a mixture of milkshake/ice cream tones with small pops of colour. Therefore, both yarns may comfortably sit well together in a project.
