World of Wool support 'design your own woolly hat' competition

To help celebrate National Wool Week and to support the Mission to Seafarers charity the British Wool Marketing Board (BWMB) and are launching a 'design your own woolly hat' competition for children to coincide with Woolly Hat Day - and we're delighted to support them!

Now in its seventh year, National Wool Week celebrates the world of wool with activities throughout the UK from 10th to 16th October 2016, including the first ever Wool BnB! Click here to find out more.

Woolly Hat Day 2016, is happening today (Friday 14th October), and BWMB is challenging children across the country to design their very own woolly hat with a nautical theme. The competition, in support of the Mission to Seafarers charity, is open to all UK school-aged children.

Kids and schools are being asked to jump aboard by using the template provided on the British Wool Learning website to design their very own maritime themed woolly hat, more details can be found here and also how to enter. is a curriculum linked learning resource launched to provide teachers, parents, club leaders and school-aged children with a herd of fun facts and interesting information about the story of British wool.

The Mission to Seafarers is a volunteer run organisation that works to assist seafarers across the world in times of great difficulty. Seafarers rely on wool to keep them insulated at sea and have done for many years, meaning wool lovers and seafarers are in the same boat.

At World of Wool we regularly supply to schools, colleges and universities, fulfilling our role as one of the leading providers of quality fibres and supplies for hand spinning, felting and many other crafts.

The team at World of Wool will be wearing our Woolly hats to support #woollyhatday will you?
