woolfest 2015

Woolfest was founded to provide a showcase and a celebration of the best of wool and wool crafts and we celebrated ten years in 2014.  Organisers are currently working on a fresh new website to mark Woolfest 2015 but a lot of the information that you need for planning your visit is still here for now. 

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.

Woolfest offers 

  • 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 attracted over 5000 visitors in 2014 and the reaction to Woolfest was very simple ... WOW.

Please browse the site and keep in touch – whether you’re planning a visit, want to know what’s happened this time and who was at Woolfest 2014 or if you’re a stallholder wanting further information, it should all be here. We have uploaded excerpts from the programme.

We were delighted so many of you contributed to our fleecy animal auction with proceeds going to Allerdale Red Squirrel Group and there was also some great fundraising for the local branch of RBST and for Medecins Sans Frontier's p/hop project.  Thank you.
