Outside the studio windows there are many rose bushes, planted and tended by my mother, who is an avid gardener. Because of the frequent gales she has chosen the tougher varieties such as the Rugosas, and one of them is Rosaraie de l’Haye. On a whim, I found myself sketching it one day, and then playing with the drawings until they almost became abstractions. This is the result.

Rosarie is an elegant and sophisticated design which is ideal for smart occasions, or dressing up a simple outfit for an evening out. I re-drew my large, geometric roses which I then worked into a dramatic all-over pattern. It stands out beautifully in Poppy, Red Rattle and Clover on a Kelpie and Calluna background.

When the UK lockdown was announced on Monday 23rd of March we took the strong advice of health and scientific experts and made the decision to pause orders and deliveries from the Virtual Yarns website. However safe we can make our workplace, we cannot send packages without involving delivery workers both here and at the point of destination. At this key time we need to play our part in reducing physical contact and closing temporarily is the most responsible way to achieve that. When circumstances allow we will re-open for orders.
