An entire house has been decked out with anything and everything made of wool – including bed spreads, mattresses, lamp covers and carpets.
The Georgian house in Englefield Road, De Beauvoir, has been turned into a teaching and event space by the Campaign for Wool to showcase the natural fibre.
The house opened to the public for seven days of craft sessions yesterday for “Wool Week”.
A woolly hat knitting workshop takes place on ‘Woolly Hat Day’ on Friday.
A tailoring workshop with one of the most established Savile Row tailoring houses, Anderson & Sheppard, can be booked through Eventbrite.
