Steve Bakker, The WoolSafe Organisation: We’re talking Wool Care in Covent Garden!

This month, The Campaign for Wool’s annual wool week revolved around the careability of wool. The highlight was a pop-up installation with two huge containers decked out with woolly fashion, furnishings and flooring, and fitted with 40 AEG washing machines showing how easy wool is to care for. We’re talking Wool Care with Steve Bakker of The Woolsafe Organisation, who’s telling us all about the spills and thrills of caring for wool.

A Bright Future for Wool at Wool Week

Wool Week is always a whirlwind of activity! This year the Wool BnB gave us all a moment to be proud of! It was intended to be a truly creative space showcasing a colourful mix of the potential of wool to make a home comfortable, tactile and visually stimulating. The fabulous flooring in the living areas was provided by Alternative Flooring with Liberty Fabrics collection.
