Welcome to The Sheep Shop 

Proud to be voted one of the best yarn shops in the UK!


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 tops for felting and spinning.  We're just a mile from the market square.
