A unique and special venue
The industrial ambience the Wool Factory is a distinctive venue for hosting your wedding dinner and/or reception. Our rehearsal dinner guests were very impressed by the uniqueness of the environment. As we planned for our event we found both the Director of Operations (Claire) and the Venue Coordinator (Danielle) to be very professional, flexible, and helpful.Sent on 07/22/2021

Industrial Chic Magic
I can't say enough about The Wool Factory / Broadcloth Restaurant team and venue. Being a COVID bride was a constant roller coaster of emotions and anxieties, but the folks at TWF and BR handled everything with the utmost professionalism, hospitality and thoroughness to the point where I, as the bride, could just sit back and actually enjoy my own wedding. The entire night was pure magic. The food, service and atmosphere was both modern and chic while also being warm and intimate. The photos I just got back from the photographer are so incredibly stunning. I am not the princessy type, who says things like, "my wedding night was the best night of my life," but I'd be lying if I said otherwise. My guests still remark on what a wonderful wedding it was and how amazing TWF team and venue was, both in terms of their food/service and the environment itself.Sent on 01/11/2021

Fantastic space, friendly staff, AMAZING food
I was incredibly pleased with our experience at the Wool Factory. The staff was accommodating, the food was delicious and perfectly cooked, and the space itself is rich in character and charm. The team did a fantastic job renovating that building while preserving and respecting the history. We had a small wedding due to the pandemic, but the space is massive, it made it very easy to spread out and feel safe. I’m not sure if there’s another venue in Cville that really compares to this place.Sent on 09/12/2020
