Cambrian Mountains Wool is a community interest company, founded with support from the Cambrian Mountains Initiative - inspired by HRH the Prince of Wales to help develop the rural hill farming economy of this beautiful, wild region. We are developing fine knitting and weaving yarns from the wool grown in Mid-Wales, commissioning tweed fabrics from native Welsh fleeces, and supporting local makers and designers. We’ll be bringing our yarns and kits, and showcasing products from makers and hand-dyers working with Cambrian Mountains Wool, as well as some of the community projects we support.

Farmers’ Welsh Lavender make body creams and balms high in the hills of Wales, half an hour by car from Hay-on-Wye. In 2003 journalist Nancy Durham and philosopher Bill Newton-Smith decided to see if lavender would grow on their windswept hillside at 1,100 feet. It did, and the oil they distil on the farm is the unique ingredient in many of their products. They’re bringing their farm shop to the festival filled with their beautifully made, luxurious products and other delightful objects made in Wales, plus a few from their travels beyond. Farmers’ Welsh Lavender can be found across the UK, and internationally in a range of independent stores in Europe and North America.
