Woolen embroidery is a type of handicraft made by sewing patterns on linen cloth with various colors of wool.

Yantai woolen embroidery was introduced from Europe in the early 20th century, but after more than 130 years, it has developed into its own unique art form influenced by traditional Chinese culture.

In 2016, Yantai woolen embroidery was named a provincial intangible cultural heritage item.
