The wonder of wool

by Webmaster, 5th January 2021

We may not be able to enjoy venturing out for the day quite yet, but there is nothing stopping us planning for future events 

Wonderwool Wales, held at the Royal Welsh Showground in Builth Wells, unfortunately had to miss last year’s event, but the organisers are determined to come back stronger this spring. 

Celebrating all that’s great about wool and natural fibres, the show will be held on April the 24th and 25th.

Two exhibitions this year include a collection of knitted and crocheted maps of seven different places around the UK and a quirky hand crafted interpretation of Alice in Wonderwool. Both exhibitions will be raising money for Wales Air Ambulance. 

The organisers are aiming for 220 exhibitors to fill the halls with hand dyed yarns and fibre, along with equipment and quality finished products, giving visitors an opportunity to stock up on supplies.

For those seeking creative inspiration, there will be demonstrations and have-a-go sessions hosted by some exhibitors. When the shopping is done, there will be plenty of tea and coffee stops and a tempting selection of refreshments from food vendors. 

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, the show attendance will be limited to 2,000 each day, rather than the usual 6,000 visitors and tickets must be purchased online in advance at
