Wool Week (14th-20th October) starts tomorrow with a variety of events from Edinburgh to London to highlight the joys and virtues
of wool as a natural, renewable and biodegradable fibre. Knit Nation is a series of free knitting classes and drop ins hosted by some of the UK’s most exciting knitting brands. There are even men only classes from Wool And The Gang, so cast those stereotypes aside and try something new.
And nominate your favourite interior wool product for the OneWool promotion. It could be a rug, carpet, fabric, furnishing or even art, such as the gorgeous textured acoustic wall panels made out of felt by Anne Kyyro Quinn. My nomination is likely to be similarly surprising, fun and functional: the Solidwool chair, I saw last week at Best of Britannia. To submit your nomination, e-mail a picture of your chosen wool product and your reason for choosing it (50-100 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Check out the Campaign for Wool’s site for a full list of events.
