Farmer's Yarn Festival Advance Ticket (Sat 1st July)

from £4.00
Farmer’s Yarn on Saturday 1st July is an annual Wool Marketplace where we celebrate the beauty and diversity of high-quality yarn made by sheep farmers. Our festival is a showcase of the craftsmanship and creativity that goes into producing natural, sustainable wool products.

At our festival, you will have the opportunity to connect with farmers from across the country and learn about the unique qualities of each breed of sheep. Not only will you have the chance to purchase exquisite and limited edition yarn for your next project, you will also be supporting small-scale farmers who are committed to using responsible and ethical farming practices.
Stallholders include: Susan Crawford Vintage, RiverKnits, Sheepfold, Woolclip, Laura's Loom, Hot Butter Yarns, Hawkshaw Sheep, Herdwick Ltd, Westmorland Upholstery, Farm Yarn UK, RBST, Amy Collin, Naural Crafting, Elisa Kerdawrakka, The Wool Library, Annfield farm, Westfield Croft, Gowerbarrow Farm, The Fold, Heatherlea Black Cheviots, Doulton Border Leicesters, Hooked by Design and The Crochet Corner.

You can also attend workshops led by expert instructors who will share their knowledge of felting and weaving on Friday 31st June and Sunday 2nd July. Whether you are a seasoned veteran or just starting out, our festival offers something for everyone (tickets available online)

You can meet some rare and native breed sheep and learn about their very different wool types. You’ll also be able to enjoy delicious food and drink from the Farmer’s Arms.

Join us at the Farmer’s Yarn and discover the magic of wool.
Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with sheep farmers, learn a new skill, and take home some yarn that was made with care and passion. We can’t wait to see you there!
It’s £4 for an advance ticket or £5 on the day with £1 from each ticket going to the RBST (Rare Breed Survival Trust).
