Fleece Dyeing and spinning event

This annual event showcases a traditional medieval craft that is still relevant and used today. Discover how by hand raw wool is dyed using plant extracts and the rainbow of colours we can create. Woad was the traditional blue dyeing resource which was made into the famous ‘Lavenham Blue Cloth’ and was the main source of Lavenham’s wealth in times gone by.
