Welcome to the Wool Clip


The Wool Clip is an award-winning co-operative made up of local wool workers. We formed The Wool Clip in 2001 and today we have 13 members who run the thriving Wool Clip shop in Caldbeck. 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.

PLEASE NOTE  

The Wool Clip shop is closed until Saturday 16th February.

We will be open daily from 11.00am until 4.00pm.

 

Here at The Wool Clip, we 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.

Coming to you from The Wool Clip.

Pam Hall

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that The Wool Clip cooperative have to let you know of the passing of our dear friend and colleague, Pam Hall. 
Pam was a founder member of the Wool Clip, whose passion for sheep, wool and weaving enabled her to produce fine work inspired by the beautiful Cumbrian landscape around her. Pam supported others who shared her passion for wool through The Wool Clip cooperative and Woolfest. She was a wonderfully strong, supportive and kind friend, we will miss her dearly.
