Cartoon sheepWelcome to Buxton Wool Gathering! We’re a wool festival dedicated to the best of yarn, knitting, and crochet, in the gateway to the Peak District.

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

Here you can find all the information you need about the event, including a list of exhibitors, details about Buxton and the venue, and you can also buy tickets when they’re available.

We’re currently in the planning stages for the second year of Buxton Wool Gathering, but you can sign up to our mailing list or follow us on Facebook for news and updates. If you would like to apply to be an exhibitor you can find all the information you need here.
