The Campaign for Wool’s seventh Wool Week kicks off on Monday, with events around London celebrating all things fleecy. A number of retailers around the country are involved, including Bicester Village, which will be hosting a wool pop-up featuring John Smedley, Johnstons of Elgin and Brora. Design Centre Chelsea Harbour—the nerve centre of London’s interiordesign industry—will be demonstrating the possibilities of wool in hotels with its Baaatique installation and there will also be a Wool BNB elsewhere in London. With everything from mattresses, pillows, duvets and blankets to fashion and furniture made from wool, this will really illustrate how living with the material can be beneficial to every aspect of our daily lives.
