A few days ago I visited the Wool House exhibition supported by The Campaign for Wool at Somerset House and I was amazed at just how V.E.R.S.A.T.I.L.E wool really is. The campaign was launched by Prince Charles in 2010 and aims to prevent any more decline in the worldwide population of sheep. This will be  achieved through educating us lovely people about how fabulous this sustainable, renewable and natural material actually is. The exhibition is the biggest I have ever seen at Somerset House, featuring everything from Vivienne Westwood platforms and Alexander McQueen wallhangings to beautifully designed rooms.  

The exhibition is fun, informative and for a great cause. So if you have some spare time in this wonderful city of London you should go along before it's over on 24th March! Oh and be sure to check out the events calendar HERE.
