The Sheep Shop

Welcome to The Sheep Shop 

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


The Sheep Shop is a wool shop in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire.  You'll find fabulous touchy-feely yarns, knitting needles & crochet hooks, notions and patterns whilst we're still here.  We're just a mile from the market square.

Shop wake - all invited, bring your knitting!  Saturday 30th September, 3.30 - 5.30pm.
