Summer Wool Festival – 27th-28th July 2024

A fun event for all lovers of knitting, crochet, feltmaking, weaving, spinning, dyeing, and all things woolly!

Join us at Summer Wool Festival!

What’s in store

We’ll be bringing all our usual goodies

  • Dyes,
  • Undyed yarns
  • Fixers, mordants & auxiliaries
  • Books
  • Equipment
  • & more!
What’s new?

We have some gorgeous new yarns (including some great natural fibre vegan yarns). We also have some fab new natural dyes as well as our extended range of procion and acid dyes.

And we’ll also be bringing our new food-colour based, ‘good to go’ dyes. With dye and fixer together, just add water and heat! (suitable for protein fibres like wool, alpaca, silk etc.).

Our new Good to Go dyes replace Kool Aid which we are sadly no longer selling. They are a blend of pure dye and citric acid so are great value for money. We’ve have two new kits for you.

Our Knit mitts kit which contains everything you need to make a fab pair of easy, knitted mitts and wristlets. It includes 100g yarn, pattern, Good to Go dyes and full instructions. Just add a pan and water!

Our second new kit is the Magical Rainbows kit. This one has 3 of our Good to Go dyes, dye applicators, funnel and full instructions.

Got a question or need some advice?

As well as all our goodies we’ll be there to answer your questions and dyeing dilemmas. We’re always happy to advise on the best product for your project and to talk through the options. With over 25 years’ hands-on dyeing experience we love a good question!

And if you’ve made something using our dyes, do bring it along – we love to see your finished projects!


Need something special? We are a bit limited for space so if there’s something you are particularly looking for, please drop us a message and we’ll make sure we pack it. Trade customers are welcome to place pre-orders too – pay on the day or beforehand and we’ll have your order ready for collection. New trade customers are also welcome – find our more here about registering for an account.
