Last weekend I went to the Bakewell Wool Gathering. It was the first time I had been to this fibre show, so wasn’t quite sure what to expect.
I was pleasantly surprised. There were a lot of Indie dyers there, mainly yarn, but there was some fibre. The majority of the yarn was a reasonable price, but there was a couple of stalls that were asking ridiculous amounts of money. Over £40 for 100g of yarn. I wish I could get that price for my hand dyed yarn.
I bought a lot of yarny goodness, and some project bags to tide me over until I get round to making my own.
I thoroughly enjoyed my weekend away, although I’m not too sure which I prefer, Woolfest or Bakewell Wool Gathering. Woolfest is mainly fibre whereas Bakewell is mainly yarn, so I guess it depends on what I need to buy.
