Campaign For Wool NYC

The Campaign For Wool was started by Prince Charles in the UK. Here's what's on their site to describe what & why.

"The Campaign for Wool was initiated in October 2008 by His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, who had observed that the wool industry was facing enormous and unprecedented challenges.

The price of wool had plummeted to the point where farmers were being paid less for their sheeps’ fleeces than the cost of having them shorn.

At the same time, sheep numbers were declining across the world, from Britain to Australia and New Zealand, and some farmers were losing confidence in the future of the wool industry.

A parallel threat came from new man-made synthetic fibres, often oil-based, which were providing stiff competition in the areas where wool had traditionally triumphed – fashion, carpets and insulation."


You can read more by clicking the link above. Basically HRH Prince Charles is trying to shine light on the wool industry so it doesn't disappear.

This campaign was brought to Bryant Park today! There were sheep on the lawn, a station set up by one of our lovely local yarn shops, Knitty City, to knit blocks for charity, a spinning station, sheep sculptures and a huge fiber piece in the fountain! Glenn and I went and had a ball. Everything was just beautiful and everyone was so nice. I wore my Aestlight Shawl and got several compliments on it and some people could even tell that it was made with MadTosh yarn. Way, way cool.


Here are some photos:



Some of the beautiful sheep they had penned up in the park enjoying the tasty Bryant Park lawn.



Me with one of the little sheep sculptures. Needless to say the pink was my favorite.



A beautiful wool rug on display.




The fiber sculpture in the fountain.



A loveseat & chair with knitted slip covers.


On the way to Bryant Park, we stopped at Starbucks and saw Ricky Gervais there! Then we went to the park and walked around looking at everything. I knitted a bit and met some lovely fellow knitters. Then we went to my favorite coffee shop, Aroma, and had some coffee. Then we went to Sarge's for lunch. Delicious pastrami, corned beef & potato pancakes. I had a bit of each and thank goodness I walked so much to offset the 4 ozs of the meal!

Saw a celebrity, knit, saw sheep, had delicious food and did it all with the greatest guy in the world. Best. Day. Ever.
