Wonderwool Wales 27th - 28th April 2019

Wonderwool Wales is a really great show and is certainly the premier wool and natural fibre event in Wales. The event is held at the magnificent Royal Welsh Showground in the town of Builth Wells (Llanfair ym Muallt) in Mid-Wales - it is a huge showground with ample parking and other facilities. It is an annual event, held over a weekend in late April each year and it has become a firm fixture in the diaries of all wool fans. in 2019, it is on the 27th and 28th of April - Saturday 10am – 5.30pm, Sunday 10am – 4.30pm.

Crowds at Wonderwool Wales

 It was originally established in 2006 in order to promote wool and natural fibre production and its use in Wales, but the event has grown substantially and now has worldwide appeal – in recent years there have been visitors from all over the UK, Europe Canada, Australia and the USA to name a few.

Now each event has over 200 exhibitors and trade stands in three halls of the Royal Welsh Showground and thousands of visitors. The event celebrates and showcases all aspects of felting, knitting, weaving, spinning and crochet. There are also numerous opportunities to buy finished products such as raw materials, ‘how to’ training books and equipment with everything from knitting needles to Ashford Weaving Looms. There are also demonstration events for spinning, weaving etc as well as displays of live ‘wool producing’ animals such as sheep, goats, rabbits and alpacas. Wonderwool really is a great opportunity for visitors to see a huge range of Welsh and British artisan products and to meet the people who made them. 

Car park is huge - no car parking problems

As it is held at the Royal Welsh Showground there are no car parking problems at all, and tickets are available online at https://www.wonderwoolwales.co.uk/ . The car park is huge and there are no car parking problems for Wonderwool. There is also plenty of room for stallholders to park caravans and camper vans for accommodation.

A Wonderwool favourite is the Sheepwalk! You've heard of the Catwalk but the Sheepwalk requires you to model a woollen product and to walk along the Sheepwalk. Well perhaps next time...
