According to the late Carolyn Rawlinson's recollections: "I had dreamt for years of creating a really big show celebrating wool, spinning, dyeing, knitting and all things associated with this wonderful part of the textile world. I suggested the idea at a Wool Clip meeting and to my surprise (and shock) everyone decided to take it on. Woolfest was born."
Today, Woolfest is a celebration of natural fibres and of all things wool.
It is still organised by members of The Wool Clip, a Cumbrian coooperative, and the aim is to celebrate all aspects of wool - from hill farming and rare breed fleece animals to the latest craft techniques and creations. Visitors and stallholders come from across the world, many of them every year, to meet and catch up with friends and to share ideas and inspirations and sell their work.
