The West Wales Wool Show

is an exciting event bringing together people from across West Wales with a passion for wool and fibre crafts

The event is in its fourth year now, run by the Pembrokeshire Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers and is very popular with knitters, crocheters, felters and other fibre enthusiasts from West Wales and further afield.

There will be over 30 stallholders, mostly small local businesses that want to add value to the wool they produce or that use wool and other fibres to produce the most beautiful crafted items.

On sale will be fibres, yarns, handmade garments and accessories, equipment as well as fibre art. Demonstrations will be run throughout the day, there will be a tombola, workshops and a treasure hunt. You can also find out about workshops that stallholders are running over the autumn and winter.

Exhibitors include Emily’s Funky Knits and Wool Shop based at Amroth Bay Holidays near Amroth. Emily’s shop is not on the high-street but in the middle of the beautiful countryside in Pembrokeshire, selling a mix of beautifully coloured wool, from King Cole to WYS, to hand-spun wool by Emily’s mother, along with Emily’s funky makes.
