We just love the brilliant and unique concept of yarn bombing! The beauty and unique sensation of creating something special using yarn is a simple joy. It challenges and changes the urban landscape one stitch at a time.
We’ve kept our long association with yarn alive through everything we do. Darlington – and Lingfield Point’s – latest office space is called YARN – now brimming over with new customers.
Lingfield Point has historical links with yarn – having been built by Paton and Baldwins as a flagship manufacturing base for the world famous knitting yarn company. At over 2million sq ft – our 107 acre neighbourhood was – we think – the largest wool factory in the world.
We were over the moon to see the Olympic inspired yarn bomb appear along the railing of Saltburn Pier. These cute little figures included athletes from sports ranging from swimming, weightlifting, football and even volley ball. Just brilliant!
We love textiles so much, we’re developing a whole range of masterclasses and groups to provide ways of creating a landscape that inspires. First up is our new knitting group with Tabby Textiles.
‘Stitching Knitwits’ will meet every Wednesday lunchtime here at Lingfield Point and if you look closely enough around our neighbourhood – don’t be surprised to see more creative and unique yarn bombs appear as time goes by.
For more inspriration on this fascinating subject, log on to www.yarnbombing.com or you could even join us on a Wednesday lunchtime – get in touch and we’ll tell you how!
