Woolfest, Cockermouth

I was lucky enough to attend Woolfest in Cockermouth, Cumbria this June.
Really, really enjoyed all the stands, the sheep pens among the stalls, the demos in the mart ring and the general atmosphere.
Took many photos and have added some here :
I bought a pair of these Rovings from FeltstudioUK - it is dyed Blueface Leicester, one of my favorite fibers:

Many sheep breeds - a demo about Herdwick
Other breeds such as Soay, Jacob, Texel, Ryeland, Manx Loaghtan were represented in the ring and amongst the stands:

 Lovely wools and crafts

And that just a little taste
