Yarn bombers celebrate jubilee with knitted crowns in Sheringham

An anonymous team of nimble-fingered yarn bombers surprised townsfolk in Sheringham today (Monday) with a jubilee-themed treat.

A woolly row of knitted crowns were wrapped Banksy-style, around the lamp posts at random locations in the town centre.

The knitting group - who wanted to remain anonymous - dubbed themselves 'The Loops'.

A spokesman from the group said: 'We wanted to make people smile and bring 'yarn sprinkling' to the town.'

Yarn bombing - or sprinkling - is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colourful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn or fibre rather than paint or chalk.
