Wovember is the idea of Kate Davies and Felicity Ford. Established in November 2011, it is both a celebration of wool and a campaign for clearer labelling and descriptions of garments. In 2012 Tom van Deijnen joined TEAM WOVEMBER.

Wovember is about showing our collective appreciation of wool by wearing as much of this fabulous fibre as possible, and by celebrating its unique qualities in stories and pictures throughout the month of November. Through our enthusiasm and creativity we can raise awareness of what makes wool different, and jointly create a force for wool appreciation strong enough to effect changes in how garments and textiles are described and marketed.
In 2012 we have themed the blog posts for the month of November around “closing the gap” between producers and consumers of yarn.
We are exploring the labour and processes which turn real WOOL into textiles and clothes through a series of blog-posts from people who work with it. The idea behind “closing the gap” is that it’s not possible for garments to be misleadingly marketed and described if the public are fully informed about what goes into producing them.
To that end we have curated blog posts on the themes of "Growing Wool", "Harvesting Wool", "Processing Wool", "Working with Wool" and "Wearing Wool". Tom van Deijnen has also curated a series of quotes from texts about wool which he has spread across the month as "WOVEMBER WORDS".
