Lake District Wool Festival

Whether you’re into spinning, felting, weaving, knitting, or crochet, there’s something for you. All in a stunning location with some of the friendliest, craftiest people around.

About Us

Cumbrian Wool Gathering is a wool festival for yarn lovers and crafters. We're based at J36 Rural Auction Centre on the edge of the Lake District.

We bring together exhibitors who sell wool related goods and the people who want to try them. We try to cover a wide range of yarn crafts and fill the hall with colour and creativity.

Cumbrian Wool Gathering is run by Wool Gatherings Ltd. We’re a company registered in England and our company number is 14112793.

Our Equality and Diversity policy outlines our commitment to these issues.
