we know there are lots of talented and creative people hand crafting beautiful objects from british wool, which haven’t travelled half way round the world to get here!

if you are a craft worker who uses british wool to spin, weave, knit, crochet, cross stitch, embroider, hand dye, make felt or any other textile process, or if you are involved in the making of lanolin soap, ewe’s milk cheese or ice cream the organisers would love to hear from you.
