Woolfest 2019

28th & 29th June

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.
