Wool, Glorious Wool
The ultimate sustainable resource.
Why should we not love wool?
Cotswold Woollen Weavers has been in Filkins designing and making fine woollen cloth since 1982. We live and breathe the wool heritage that made the English Cotswolds, and draw our inspiration from the soft colours of the Cotswold landscape all around us.
We believe that virtue lies in the tradition of doing things well, and that we can learn from those who went before us. (Shoulders of giants, and all that.) But we also believe that innovation is good too (and also fun) so long as it is based firmly on finding ways to do good things better.
‘In England the best wool is Cotswold’ sang the medieval weavers. Come to Cotswold Woollen Weavers, and find out how and why, as you tour our magnificent 18th century buildings…
The only textile design studios in The Cotswolds for such a range of fabulous cloth inspired by our wool-heritage, garments for men and women, knitwear, and accessories. And then there’s… furniture and interiors textiles, art, pottery, sculpture, and an eclectic mixture, both new and vintage, in our Explorium.
We have a licensed coffee-shop for light lunch, and an orchard picnic area. You can explore the tranquil Cotswold village of Filkins too. Oh, and you can hire bicycles too, if you want to venture further afield.
