Follow the flock! Celebrate all things woolly by heading to London’s Southwark Cathedral for Wool Week 2014

Wool Week is a countrywide event which includes exhibitions, craft workshops and other inititatives

Interior design aficionados and crafters alike should put next week’s Wool Week, from 5th-12th October, in their diaries.

The lovely people at Campaign for Wool, which has HRH The Prince of Wales as its patron, have organised a programme of events to mark its fifth anniversary.

There’s an Interiors Collection exhibition being held at London’s Southwark Cathedral, which will be showcasing innovative design pieces that ‘highlight the natural beauty and practicality of real wool’.

There’ll be over 50 items on display, including fabrics, flooring, furnishings and lifestyle items with pieces selected from designers at Marks and Spencer, Designers Guild and Melin Tregwynt, to name but a few.

The Southwark Cathedral exhibition is open from 10am-7pm daily, and admission is free.

And if you can’t make it to the London event, you can still get involved in a countrywide celebration of wool, knitting and craft by going along to a PicKnit, and enjoy a knit, natter and, of course, a picnic.

Host your own PicKnit (if you’re tempted, there are free cushion patterns available to download on the website), or use the map to find an event near you.

Launched in 2010, The Campaign for Wool and events around Wool Week offers an opportunity to find out more about the benefits of wool and support the wool industry. To find out more, visit campaignforwool.org.
