The Project

Gwlangollen was set up with the aim to to promote wool based heritage skills, raise awareness of the importance that wool played in the development of the town and more recently to promote the importance of wool as a freely available natural resource, that is underused and underappreciated.


We are a self funded CIC working in partnership with Hwb Pentredwr.

"An innovative and exciting project based in Llangollen, North Wales."

A young people's competition

We have been working with Bio-Composites, Young Farmers, Clwydian Range and Dee Valley AONB & Hwb Pentredwr to encourage local young people aged 13-26 to be actively involved in the future use of locally produced wool.
