Imagine traveling with other wool lovers exploring the countrysides of England, Wales, and Scotland to discover the rich history and modern methods of the wool industry in Great Britain!

  • A sheep farm in Hampshire utilizing their wool in the production of beautiful hand-dyed yarns (along with homemade cakes, teas, and coffees!)
  • Working textile mills with historical exhibits in England, Wales, and Scotland…each with a unique history and each producing yarns and wovens from British wool.
  • Wool scouring and combing plant\"Tour
  • Wool dye house
  • And the “big event”…Woolfest in Cockermouth, Cumbria!
Throughout our travels, we’ll also visit the sites of London, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Hidcote Manor Gardens, the Caernarfon Castle, passage on the steam train from Porthmadog to Blaenau Ffestiniog, and Edinburgh! Whew! Our trip will conclude with a traditional Scottish dinner and show before we say farewell and depart the next day bound for the United States with an abundance of good memories and new treasures!
