Wool

Question

I am looking for somewhere to buy wool. Veritas does not have a good selection. Anywhere Brussels, Wavre, Overijse??

Art et Fil, 25 rue du Bailli, Ixelles. It's a proper wool shop - lovely wide selection.

But they are closing Rue du Bailli, you need to hurry up!

That's a shame that it's going to close! Here is a link to some other options in and around Brussels.

It's in Halle, but may be worth a visit. Go Saturday morning and take in the market while you're there.

Leuven, but they talk funny and it's not Brussel. Right in the center and opposite the gun shop. I would google but you can surely do it yourself.

I also would suggest Leuven easy to get to on a bus from Overijse and a few nice wool shops there. Check this out
