Well, here’s some rather exciting news – the Wool Clip have a new member – and it’s me! Regular Woolfest visitors will know the Wool Clip as the organisers of this fabulous annual celebration of all things wool. They also have a shop in Caldbeck village, Cumbria and a website.
It was a lovely surprise to be invited to join and a real honour for me. I’ll be working in the shop a few days each month and some of my ready made crochet items will be for sale online and in the shop. If you find yourself in Cumbria, do come along and say hello. You’ll find a wondrous selection of hand made items from woven wraps, to tufted rugs adn even Herdwick ties in a tin (the perfect Father’s Day gift perhaps?). I’ll be working on Bank Holiday Monday at the end of May, so do drop by and say hello if you’re nearby. You can find more information about the Wool Clip and their address on their website.
Best of all, is the gorgeous selection of British wool. The selection includes hand spun and hand dyed wool from native breeds, real wool with a real connection to the lakeland Fells. This is your perfect destination for wool that has been reared, sheared and spun here in Cumbria by members of the Wool Clip. I often used to visit the Wool Clip to buy wool for projects or to seek out gorgeous presents. It’s a hidden gem and right next door there’s a coffee shop selling delicious cakes and great coffee.
Have I tempted you to come and visit? Over the next few weeks I’ll be posting photos of some of the items I’ll have for sale. The best place to keep up with new additions to my stock is to follow me on Instagram (@GrannyCoolCrochet) or to follow my new shop account where all my stock will be added with links in my profile to buy direct from the Wool Clip or to download patterns. At the moment, most of my stock is blankets and small accessories to keep out chilly winds, but as time goes on I’ll be adding more gift ideas, kits and patterns.
Finally, don’t worry if you can’t make it to Cumbria – Woolfest 2021 will be online in June this year – you can find more details on the Woolfest website and I’ll be posting updates on Instagram.
