Our Wool Museum is a very interactive experience. Look, see, touch, smell – become immersed in our wool story.

Breathe deeply and savour the wool smell hanging in the air. Peer closely at the fleecy fibres under the microscope. Not only do the different types of fleece look amazingly different, they feel very different too. Plunge your hands into the real fleeces and find out for yourself. Take a seat and watch and listen to our short documentary telling the story of our local wool industry.

Please keep coming back to this page, we’ll keep adding to it as we have so much more to show you!
