A festival of desirable textiles; gorgeous yarn to knit and weave with; fleece and fibre to spin and felt and animals to admire. There will be a range of inspirational workshops and seminars for you to learn new skills or polish forgotten ones.
The event is to be held in the grounds of Coldharbour Mill, Working Wool Museum, Uffculme Devon. The Mill, currently open to the public, will play host to the event and will be open for tours as well as Steam Up, a unique experience where the original steam engines are fired up. The mill is a unique 200 year old processing and worsted mill and is utilising its recently restored water wheel to once again process and spin yarn for fibre producing farms.
