Yarn bombers cover Abbey’s doors with poppies

Castlefields Yarn Bombers made 237 poppies to cover the medieval doors of Shrewsbury Abbey! The poppies have been knitted, crocheted, felted and sewn, and many of them have been embellished with embroidery, beads and sequins. We are absolutely delighted with the results.
