The Original
British Festival of Wool

Woolfest was founded by members of The Wool Clip cooperative to provide a celebration of natural fibres and a showcase for the best of wool and wool crafts. It is all about creativity and design with beautiful quality, amazing colours, skilled craftsmanship and a huge enthusiasm for all things wool related. Woolfest is a great day out and was recognised as the Cumbria Tourism Event of the Year in 2012.

Thank you for finding us and welcome to the Woolfest website.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to last year's Woolfest online event that was organised to replace our usual Cockermouth gathering. Woolfest Online 2020 ran over four days as a Facebook Group and involved well over 4000 people. For 2021, we will still be online and are hoping to create something even better. We realise that online isn't great for everyone, but we hope that you'll join our Woolfest Group on Facebook or Follow us on Instagram, take part and support our stallholder businesses.

You can still find a selection of the 2020 videos from The Wool Clip on the cooperative's website.

Over the years, our visitors, volunteers, stallholders and everyone involved have all played an amazing part in creating a unique event. Our hope for you all is that you stay safe, stay well and join us online in June 2021.
