I can’t believe I’m only just posting this, but I managed to make it to the fabulous Wool House on its very last day. It was an exhibition by the Campaign for Wool, spanning ten days, to promote the multiple uses and benefits of wool. For those who missed it, the exhibition took over a section of the beautiful Somerset House in central London, showcases the uses of wool in clothing, furnishings, art, and just about any other use you could think of.
There were different themed rooms, each with its own focus, whether natural, modern, or nursery (by far the cutest:)
There were some really lovely homewares, which I realised my flat is lacking. I didn’t get a photo, but there were walls draped in wool fabric as wallpaper (woolpaper?) to0. Ah, for a pinstripe room!
I really liked the incredible detail of the exhibition, right down to the Black Sheep Ale that formed part of one display:
It was such a great exhibition, and over the ten days, they had something like 17 000 people come through the doors. I’m rather immersed in the knitting/crafting community, so it was great to see how much wool is appreciated more broadly.
