Sneek Peak At This Year's Campaign For Wool Celebrations

Since 2010 the Campaign For Wool has celebrated every October all that's wonderful about British wool. From soft furnishings to high fashion, the campaign has brought over 100 companies together yearly to showcase the benefits of using wool. In fact the campaign is now global, all under the patronage of HRH The Prince of Wales.

A few snippets have leaked out about this year's woolly shenanigans - and what a showstopper it's going to be. Wool Week 2015 takes place from the 5th to the 11th of October. The Campaign is going to go back to its inaugural roots and will once again transform London's Savile Row into a lush, green meadow complete with two flocks of 30 sheep.

Elsewhere more than 25 tailors have been partnered with over 25 of the UK's most influential wool mills with the challenge to create a bespoke look. The outfits will be modelled at a special event. Know any men who love to wear wool? British GQ magazine is going to snap the best dressed men in wool during the day.

Friday 9th October is woolly hat day to support the Mission to Seafarers' charity. From September (eek, that's tomorrow!) the Campaign for Wool website will publish hat patterns by Marie Wallin, Craft Revolution, Wool & The Gang and other designers. My needles are on standby.

Scollayalong update
I've now knitted about half a sleeve as well as the body. It seems to be taking so long ... probably because I know I'm up against the clock. Fingers crossed I'll hit the end of September deadline.
