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.

The Wool Clip wanted to celebrate and commemorate Pam Halls life, she was a founder member of the Wool Clip who sadly died last year. Pam was a sheep farmer in St John’s in the Vale and she used her own hand-dyed Herdwick fleece in her inspirational weaving. Pam spent her last few weeks at the Eden Valley Hospice. We invited Woolfest visitors to create a piece of craftwork on a Herdwick theme, All the items were auctioned on the Saturday of Woolfest. £2,295.27 was raised which was donated to Eden Valley Hospice.

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.
We are still selling Pam's yarn, the money goes to local charities.
