Welcome to the North Pennines Wool Group's blog.

And what better way to begin than with our upcoming North Pennines Wool Event, 7th and 8th October 2011 in Upper Weardale?  Lots to see, lots to do, including natural plant dyeing demos, fleece sorting, wool auctions, Halifax Spinning Mill, Eden Gotlands, North West Wools and so much more.

And only British Wool in sight!

For full details check out the North Pennines Wool website.
In addition to the fantastic lineup of stallholders (with only British wools!), we have a few exciting wool/sheep related extras (including peg looms, lucets, sheep cards, breed books etc) on the North Pennines Wool Group's sale table.  We also have the daily fleece auctions, which will include Wensleydale, Shetland, Teeswater, Manx Loaghtan, Hebridean and Ryeland fleeces, various demonstrations throughout the two days and the spinning and knitting circle in the yurt at Killhope just a mile down the hill.  Plus, of course, there will be delicious food!  We'll also have the prizegiving for the North Pennines gansey design competition, plus exciting woolly raffle prizes.  

We look forward to seeing you there!
