Every year in November after North America is all done with sheep and wool festivals, I look forward to Wovember. Frankly, it’s helping get me through this November by letting my mind and heart rest on something wonderful, beautiful and useful.
Started by Felcity Ford and Kate Davies in 2011 because of their love for wool and in response to their frustration over the mislabeling and misinformation about wool and wool products in mainstream goods. Wovember is a month long love song to wool.
Wovember is a celebration of and education about all things wool, sheep, sheep breeds, the many uses of wool and lots and lots of beautiful yarn and knitting. Be sure to check out their current blog posts about EU sheep and an excellent week’s worth of blog posts on labeling wool .
