The Sheep Shop

Welcome to The Sheep Shop 


The Sheep Shop is a wool shop in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire.  You'll find fabulous touchy-feely yarns, knitting needles & crochet hooks, notions and patterns.  We also have fleece for felting and spinning.  We're just a mile from the market square.

You can join The Sheep Shop flock on Friday mornings and some Tuesday evenings to stitch & bitch

Want to learn?  We hold lots of knitting, crochet and other craft classes.

Knitting superstar Stephen West will be here to meet you and teach on Sunday 6th December, and Sparkleduck will be bringing lots of extra yarn we don't normally stock!
