Dublin Wool Shop Reports Boost In Sales Since Ariana Grande Visit

Brian Dillon

Ariana Grande certainly made the most of her time in Dublin when she brought her tour here a few weeks ago.

And part of her visit to our little city included a brief stop off at a wool shop in Walkinstown.

The singer reportedly spent hundreds on two sacks of knitting wool in Springwools Wool Shop, sending Dublin fans into a frenzy.

And it seems the star’s visit to the quaint little wool shop has had a lasting effect.

Springwools owner Patsy Spring said, “Hearing about Ariana Grande shopping for wool has inspired younger people to give it a go themselves, which is great to see.

“I’ve been knitting since a young age myself. It’s such a relaxing thing to do, and a great creative outlet. New knitters visiting the shop are amazed by the sheer range of gorgeous yarns and designs available.”

She added:

“If you don’t knit, you don’t know that knitting has undergone a transformation in recent years. Modern knitting attracts style-conscious people who want something more special than mass-produced fast fashion, and who enjoy the mindful activity of creating it themselves.

“It’s great to see more and more people getting into it. Sure even Ariana Grande is knitting, and she’s buying the best Irish yarns too!”

During her time in Dublin, the singer also stopped off in a popular Temple Bar vintage shop, as well as a hardware store in Crumlin, where she bought a pinata.
