The Centre for Folk Art Production widely known as ÚĽUV comes with an exhibition entitled “A Yarn of Wool”. Visitors in Košice's ÚĽUV Gallery can see wool in its main role as a unique material for practical and aesthetic use. Through interior accessories and clothing items, the exhibition reveals different wool processing techniques such as shaggy wool cloth-making, wool cloth-making, weaving, embroidery, the cuff decoration technique and felting.

Collection items from the Museum of Folk Art Production are joined by items created by contemporary producers and artists who have decided to rediscover the many uses of wool. The exhibition will be opened in the ÚĽUV Gallery in Košice from February 23rd, to June 6th, 2018.
