Opening Times 2021

We are now open Thursday to Sunday 11am to 4pm from 15th April 2021


The Wool Clip is a cooperative of 15 local members who all have a thing about wool. Between us, we grow it, sew it, spin, weave and dye it, knit, crochet and felt it, hook with it, tuft with it and stuff with it. Our work focuses on colour and creativity, our aim is to share our enthusiasm for all things woollen.


Formed in 2001, the Wool Clip shop in Caldbeck is thriving with a strong following of like minded visitors. There's always a member of the co-operative in the shop and we enjoy meeting visitors and other wool craft enthusiasts - please drop in and browse our stock.


Held over a weekend each Summer, Woolfest was founded to provide a showcase and a celebration of the best of wool and wool crafts. The event is all about  showcasing amazing creativity and design with beautiful quality, colours and skilled craftsmanship. It is also a great day out and was recognised in 2012 when Woolfest won the Cumbria Tourism Event of the Year Award.

Woolfest 2019 was a great success again, but unfortunately we have had to cancel Woolfest for 2020 due to Coronavirus.  For more information for visitors and stallholders on the 2021 event see the Woolfest Website

     Woolfest 2021 will be on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th June 2021 from 10am. 

Woolfest will be at Mitchell's Lakeland Livestock Centre, Cockermouth, CA13 0QQ Click For Visitor Info
