    Special Event


Join us for our second Wool & Yarn Fest at RHS Garden Rosemoor. Once again we aim to celebrate the multitude of ways that wool and yarn can be used in our daily lives, from creative use to practical use.

We are looking to inspire our visitors to become involved in learning new skills and to take home wonderful gifts from the amazing array of exhibitors who will be joining us in the Garden Room, Learning Centre and Lecture Hall.

There will be wonderful woolly animals to meet and also the return of the fantastic Yarn Bombing Trail, which this year will be based on the novel The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett down by the Learning Centre.

We will be running the following Workshops:
