This weekend I headed up to Cumbria to attend Woolfest 2015! Woolfest is an agricultural and crafting show exhibiting all that is great about wool, with everything from knitting kits and accessories, weaving tools to buying actual wooly animals!

The show takes place over 2 days and features so many stalls full of wooly goodies. I especially enjoyed meeting all the different breeds of sheep, alpacas and goats plus the beautiful textiles created from their fleeces.

I have such a large stash that I tried to keep the yarn-buying to a minimum but I did slip away with this Lillian poncho/top kit from Purl Alpaca Designs.
