We aren’t sheepish about celebrating wool

Winter is approaching, but don’t worry – things are already warming up at the markets with plenty of brightly coloured wool for our special annual event, A Celebration of Wool, to be held on Sunday 20th May.

Taking place just as we’re all getting ready to pull out the winter woollies, A Celebration of Wool is now in its seventeenth year. There will be around 40 additional speciality stalls at the market with hand felted garments and accessories, designer knitwear, millinery, weavings, funky beanies and farm label knitwear. With a vast array of woollen yarns, including hand spun and hand dyed yarns, you can stock up on woollen hats, scarves and socks in time for winter, or purchase some wool to get cracking on your own creations. Meet and speak to wool producers, craftspeople and artists, view hand spinning, learn about hand felting, watch people weaving.

If you enjoy knitting, felting, working with wool – or if you just want to keep warm this winter, A Celebration of Wool is the perfect day out!
