UK's biggest wool celebration to kickoff on Oct 15
Oct '12
LoveWool UK (LWUK) looks set for another fantastic year with the wool lovers of the United Kingdom snapping up the chance to collectively celebrate ‘real’ wool.

The free-style event, which will run during the Campaign for Wool’s Wool Week – Monday 15th – Sunday 21st October 2012 allows people of any locality to join in and create their own woolly event – large or small.

Supported by Rowan Yarns and Jamieson and Smith, LoveWool UK simply offers a loose framework for getting ordinary lovers of wool involved with HRH The Prince of Wales’ Campaign for Wool (CfW). The CfW is now in its third year and supports sheep farmers and the wool textile industry with a range of high profile wool promotions during Wool Week.

“We had amazing support last year – there were 700 separate events – on beaches, in cafes, parks, museums, small knitting shops and larger ones too. Activities that people did in 2011 ranged from knit and natters to felting and spinning displays, wool fashion shows and sheep runs down the local high street. The response was quite amazing – which is why we call it the ‘biggest celebration of wool in the UK’.” Bridgette Kelly of the Campaign for Wool said.

NEW FOR 2012 –‘The Clickety Click on the Clickety Clack’

This year LWUK has added a special travelling challenge to a team of 25 super knitters. Representatives in teams from colleges, designers, artisans, knit organisations and editors too will take part in a mission named ‘The Clickety Click on the Clickety Clack’. All given a challenge to create an amazing knitted Union Jack flag designed by Marie Wallin of Rowan Yarns, in wool from the different British sheep breeds wools and stitches. All in the time it takes to travel from London to Edinburgh and back!
