There is no point in introducing Wool Days anymore. For 3 days, professionals of the wool sector meet up in Felletin, birthplace of tapestry. This town becomes the capital of wool for one weekend to the delight of wool, yarn lovers and ‘hand-made’ enthusiasts.
A natural and noble ecological product, used since forever, wool has regained its credentials. Modern and creative, you can use it for whatever you want. It can be woven, spun, knitted or felted according to its creator’s wishes.
It can be used as knitting yarn to make warm and soft sweaters but it can also be woven and felted to create clothes, jewellery, bags and many other unusual and sturdy items. Note that it is by the expert fingers of the weavers that the famous Aubusson tapestries are created, one of our foremost local specialities.
… one weekend to discover wool thanks to specialists, textile designers and art craftspeople.
Arriving from the 4 corners of France, more than a hundred exhibitors, creators and wool craftsmen exchange and share their creations in Felletin.
These 3 days are a unique opportunity to “try your hand” and learn different textile applications with the help of recognised professionals. Learn to spin wool with a spinning wheel, make a quilted bedcover to keep warm and cosy during winter or even learn how to make a tapestry with a professional weaver who will teach you the necessary precise and regular gestures.
Immerse yourself for 3 days in a wool paradise and discover everything about the lively wool sector and the creative talents of its protagonists.
