woolfest 2014 - our 10th anniversary!!

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.

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 almost 6000 visitors in 2013 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 happening this time and who’ll be at Woolfest or if you’re a stallholder wanting further information, it should all be here. 

We hope lots of you will contribute to our fleecy animal auction all proceed will go to charity.

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 and look out for us as Runners-Up in the event class of the Let's Knit awards too!
