Join our World of Wool at the Wool BnB!
To mark the #WoolWeek celebrations, The Campaign for Wool will be opening the doors to the first ever ‘Wool BnB’, where everything inside, from carpets to cardigans will be made of wool.
The BnB, located in Islington, London, will be welcoming guests to a cosy living room and snug entirely decorated with wool products.
A double bedroom will be fully equipped with luxury wool filled mattresses, pillows, duvets, cosy blankets and nightwear, bringing to the forefront the benefits of wool in aiding a good night’s sleep.
The woolly Study will immerse guests in a wealth of wool knowledge through a floor to ceiling World Wool Map whilst the craft room will give guests a first-hand experience in the joy of making with real sheep’s wool through workshops where you can learn how to knit, weave and create items for the home using this versatile fibre. Not forgetting a sheep’s natural environment, the Wool BnB’s very own Shepherds’ Hut – located in the garden where guests can sit and enjoy getting back to nature.
The Campaign for Wool brand partners will kit out the whole house including a wool-kin wardrobe showcasing iconic wool pieces from prestigious brands across luxury, fashion, interiors and craft. Under one roof, The Campaign for Wool will demonstrate how living with wool can be beneficial from head to toe, ceiling to floor and everything in between.
The ‘Wool BnB: Living with wool’, will launch officially for ‘Wool Week’, during which media and public are invited to visit the BnB to learn more about wool as a fibre and take part in workshop evenings, interactive talks, film screenings and a wool styling session by Karina Garrick who has directed, curated and styled the project. Woolly overnight stays will be available exclusively following Wool Week and we’ll be offering a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience living with wool first hand.
Stay tuned for the final schedule of events and open house sessions plus the competition details!
