The folks of Ellesmere, Great Britain sure have an interesting way of celebrating their local Olympians! A group called the Ellesmere Yarn bombers have created post box toppers celebrating their Olympic heros, including Oliver Townend and Ballaghmor Class (a.k.a Thomas), who’s Gadlas Farm just outside town.
This isn’t the first time that fiber art has adorned the town of Ellesmere. They’re a bit famous for their random acts of “yarn bombing” appearing every now and then on the main public streets. Think graffiti, but with knitted and crocheted creations!
