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.
The shop is open 7 days a week 11 am – 4 pm from mid-February to the end of December, weather permitting. During the summer (April to October) we are open until 5pm. Please note: we will be closed Thursday, Friday and Saturday 22nd-24th June for Woolfest. Come and see us there or we'll be open again as normal on Sunday 25th June 2016.
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.
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.
