The original British Wool Festival
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. It is also a great day out and was recognised in 2012 when Woolfest won the Cumbria Tourism Event of the Year Award.
Woolfest 2018 promises to be 'blooming' marvellous with woollen flowers decorating the show made by our lovely visitors and friends. For more info and free downloadable patterns head to 'Events in the Small Ring'.
Woolfest 2018 will be on Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd June from 10am.
Entrance £10 (£15 for a two-day ticket) - tickets are no longer available online but plenty will be available on the door.
(including parking and programme; accompanied children free)
Woolfest offers a showcase of talents
A wealth of advice | A bank of knowledge | A treat for the senses | A treasure trove of natural fibres
