The Original British Festival of Wool


Woolfest 2018 (Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd June) promises to be ‘blooming’ marvellous, with wool flowers all over the show, as the popular event falls within British Flowers Week. The original British Festival of Wool, Woolfest is now in its fourteenth year and it regularly attracts over 5,000 visitors to Cockermouth.


Jean Wildish, a member of The Wool Clip and one of the organisers said: “Wool crafts and creativity are as popular as ever and Woolfest continues to attract the best of wool craft businesses, designers and makers to Cumbria.


“Applications from stallholders have again exceeded the space available and we’re pleased to be welcoming 15 new stallholders, plus another eight or so in our shared space area.


“With additional exhibitions, events in the two rings, local music and dance, food and drink and one of the biggest bouquets of woollen flowers ever, it is looking like another varied and inspiring Woolfest.”


This year, visitors are being asked to create flowers in wool – knitted, crocheted, felted and sewn, even pompom-ed and to bring these along to the event. In a partnership with local charity West House, the flowers will be collected, displayed and then sold or used by the charity in its cafés and garden shop in West Cumbria.


West House Fundraiser, Emma Robinson commented: “This is a good chance for us to promote our work with disabled young people and adults and we’re looking forward to meeting lots of Woolfest visitors!”
