Wool House featuring Johnstons of Elgin

Seeing as we seem to be caught in a neverending Winter at the moment, you may be looking for something which can warm your cockles this weekend and we have the perfect antidote to the cold. Head over to Somerset House to take in the Wool House exhibition which is full of all things warm, cosy and wooly (funnily enough).

Upon entering your feet immediately touch upon a thick woolen carpet and your eyes meet with a giant woolen bear which dominates the corner of the room. You are led through what may be the most stylish house you could ever dream of, made almost entirely from wool. Complete with cosy fireplaces, fluffy armchairs, a designer woolen wardrobe to die for and entire rooms designed from different woolen fabrics. There are even knitting and weaving workshops should you feel inspired to get involved yourself.

Being one of the oldest woolen mills in the UK, Johnstons of Elgin naturally have a large presence at the exhibition, which is all in aid of the Campaign for Wool. The exhibition features many of their scarves, tweed suits and fabrics within the fashion area, sitting alongside brands such as Vivienne Westwood, Christopher Raeburn and Giles Deacon.

The exhibition runs until March the 24th in the West Wing of Somerset House, so this weekend is your last chance to take a look. For more information visit the website and to view more photos from our visit take a look at our Facebook Page.
