Returning for its fifth year over the weekend of Saturday 28th to Sunday 29th October 2017, Kendal Wool Gathering mixes demonstrations, fun activities and displays, all connected to the cloth on which the town’s wealth was built.
Stands and stalls representing all aspects of commercial wool products, including carpets, looms, spinning wheels and crafts will be on display at a large unit at Kendal Leisure Centre. Outside there will be livestock, walks and talks. Linked fun events take place throughout the Kendal.
Last year’s partners included Museum of Lakeland Life and Industry, Wordsworth Trust, Kendal's Quaker Tapestry and The Factory. The Lancs and Lakes Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers will be giving demonstrations again this year.
Kendal Wool Gathering is a not-for-profit event, organised by volunteers.
