Woolfest was founded to provide a showcase and a celebration of the best of wool and wool crafts.
The event is all about creativity and design with beautiful quality, amazing colours and skilled craftsmanship and this was recognised in 2012 when Woolfest won the Cumbria Tourism Award for Event of the Year.
- a showcase of talents
- a wealth of advice
- a bank of knowledge
- a treat for the senses
and a treasure trove of natural fibres
Whatever your wool interests – Woolfest is for you.
We attract more than 5000 visitors each year and the usual reaction to Woolfest is very simple ... WOW.
Please browse the site and keep in touch – whether you’re planning a visit, want to know what’s happening this time and who’ll be at Woolfest or if you’re a stallholder wanting further information, it should all be here (or, if not, very soon).
We hope you'll join in our Woollycultural Show too!
If you want to extend your visit there are lots of events going on around Woolfest with our friends Higham Hall, Farfield Mill and Greystoke Cycle Cafe.
We’ll try to keep the website as up to date as we can as Woolfest approaches.
Thanks to the readers and staff of Knit Now magazine who voted us their Favourite Event in their magazine's first ever awards!
