Wonderwool Wales is the premier Wool & Natural Fibre Festival in Wales. It was set up in 2006 in order to promote wool and natural fibre production and its use in Wales. The Event was funded by a Leader + grant from the EU and managed by Powys County Council, via Glasu, for the first 3 years until the funding ceased.
At this time a small group of exhibitors, who had been part of the original steering committee with Glasu, set up a Not-for-Profit company in order for the event to continue. Wonderwool Wales Ltd, comprising of Olwen Veevers, Chrissie Menzies and Sarah Stacey, ran the event for the first time in 2009. We hope to expand the show each year with new ideas, but still maintain the standards, ethos and enthusiasm of the Festival.
Wonderwool Wales has Exhibitors and Trade Stands covering all aspects of Felting, Knitting, Weaving, Spinning & Crochet along with Textile Art with raw materials, equipment, books and finished product. There are also demonstrations and a selection of fibre animals on display including sheep, alpacas and angora rabbits.
In 2011 we ran two 2-Day Felting Workshops on the Monday and Tuesday following Wonderwool with the tutors from JAO in Finland which were very successful. We hope to repeat this again in the future.
We hope that you will all be able to join us each year for what we hope will be a fun and fibre packed weekend. Camping facilities are available on site and can be booked in advance, and a list of accommodation in the surrounding area is available on the Wonderwool website.
Weekend Tickets and Coach Party Tickets can be ordered in advance of the show.
Wonderwool Wales Ltd looks forward to seeing you all, old friends and new.
