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 14 members who run the thriving Wool Clip shop in Caldbeck. In May 2012 we extended the shop to incorporate a new sales area so please come and take a look around.

Woolfest 2017 Friday 23 June 10am - 6pm and Saturday 24 June 10am - 5pm

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 woolen..

Coming to you from The Wool Clip.

Founder Member Marion Woolcott Retires

For craftspeople, workers of the land, the self- employed and the creatively driven, retirement is a slippery concept. Having added a number of skills to her portfolio over the years - hand spinner, weaver, dyer, knitter, crocheter, designer, and tutor - marion has decided to try something new and she officially retired from The Wool Clip in April.

We would like to thank Marion for her significant contributionto The Wool Clip for her support and dedication and for her generosity in sharing these and many other skills.

We wish Marion all the best with her new challenges and most of all a long and happy retirement.
