Peak District Wool Festival

Whether you’re into spinning, felting, weaving, crochet or knitting, there’s something for you. All in a stunning location with some of the friendliest, craftiest people around.

About Us

Bakewell Wool Gathering is a wool festival for yarn and fibre lovers and crafters. We're based at Bakewell Agricultural Centre in the Peak District.

We bring together exhibitors who sell wool related goods and the people who want to try them. We try to cover a wide range of fibre crafts and fill the hall with colour and creativity.

Bakewell Wool Gathering is run by Wool Gatherings Ltd. We’re a company registered in England and our company number is 14112793.

Our Equality and Diversity policy outlines our commitment to these issues.
