Knitted Rainbow Moth

£140.00£160.00

Hand knitted rainbow moth.

I made these during lockdown 2020. Seeing rainbows everywhere as a sign of support and connection inspired me to knit my first moth not based on a real species. And of course once I’d made one I had to try another colour variation…! Now I’ve made a few I want to get them out in the world to bring a little joy to your homes. I will be donating 20% of the proceeds from all rainbow moth sales to The Trussel Trust, a UK food bank charity

There are 3 colour options, the first 2 are made with Shetland Wool like all my other moths. The 3rd is made with Tanami yarn which is hand dyed by Travelknitter and made from 50% silk and 50% baby camel. These are super soft and shimmery and also a little bit smaller as the yarn has more drape and less bounce compared to shetland wool.

I also experimented with adding a thread of lurex shimmer to the sky colour to give it that fresh rain effect which you can see in the pictures of Shetland 2.
