unravel...a festival of yarn celebrates all things yarn and yarn making from knitting and crochet to spinning and weaving. Covering the whole of Farnham Maltings, unravel centres around a curated marketplace with 70 independent producers, well-established makers and first time yarn show exhibitors from around the UK. Our Garthenor Talks Series also runs alongside the festival with presentations and panels by yarn industry experts.

Held over three days, unravel celebrates its 14th year of yarny goodness in 2022! unravel will also return as a hybrid event, blending both in-person and virtual activities into one festival.

Tickets are available in advance and with timed entry* so that we can manage visitor traffic to ensure the best possible visitor experience. While there may be some tickets available on the door this is not guaranteed and we encourage you to book in advance to avoid disappointment. Please carefully select your chosen arrival time slot and arrive no earlier than 15 minutes before your entry time. Your entry window is 45 minutes so can enter at any point during that time.

Please note that if you are booked onto one of our unravel in-person workshops your entry to the marketplace is included in the price of your workshop ticket on the same day as your workshop. Workshop participants will also have access to the marketplace at any time on the day of their workshop.

Included with your in-person ticket is full access to our virtual programme taking place online over the weekend. This includes our talks, social events, and more! More details will be sent to you in early February.
