“This is my finished knitted and felted Herdwick pencil case kit from Sheepfold. I had already tried their super Easy Peasy Purse kit but I love the pencil case even more.”

"I'm a supporter of all the work going on to protect Britain's sheep breeds … so I'll definitely be buying a pack of Sheepfold's greetings cards to send to knitting friends. I love the fact that they show some of the very sheep that supply wool to Sheepfold, including North Ronaldsay and Shetland."

"If you'd like to try your hand at felting for the first time, or want to introduce a friend to the technique, the purse kits from Sheepfold are a lovely way to get started …"

"Smarten up with one of Sheepfold's new knit-and-felt bag designs. Knitted from rare-breed wool, the ridged 'Karst' and the 'Treasure', with its single big button, are practical bags you can use every day."

"Knitting with camel certainly does sound odd, but it was love at first touch when we got hold of this wool and camel yarn! ... This Aran weight wool and camel mix yarn is available from Sheepfold."

"More and more knitters are increasingly turning to environmentally-friendly fibres in a bid to do their bit and are discovering a whole new world of British wool along the way ...
... [Sheepfold's] website offers a brilliant guide to the qualities of Britain's variety of rare breed sheep."

"Take two crafting friends, a passion for British wool and a flair for design, and you have the perfect recipe for a unique new knitting venture!
With all the amazing new yarns around made from unusual fibres such as bamboo, paper and alpaca, it can be easy to forget the yarn that started it all — wool. Thank goodness then, for knitters such as Alice Underwood and Sue Parker, whose passion for British pure wool has led them to create Sheepfold, their very own knitting business with a difference."

"Have you seen the astounding collection of knit-and-felt bag kits from Sheepfold? The bags come in a wide range of stylish shapes and sizes so there is bound to be at least one that takes your fancy. Sheepfold endeavours to use British wool where possible and there is a range of natural wool kits produced with wool from a variety of British sheep breeds such as Black Welsh Mountain and Wensleydale as well as wool from 'critically rare' classified breeds such as the North Ronaldsay. From fun and funky to classic chic the bag kits contain yarn, pattern, felting instructions, buttons and embellishments and a woven label to sew inside when complete — all you need do is provide the needles."

"The Sheepfold stand at Woolfest in Cockermouth was surrounded by enthusiastic ladies and festooned with all manner of felted bags — and soon it became clear what all the fuss was about!
Sue Parker and Alice Underwood established Sheepfold just over a year ago. Describing themselves as avid crafters, they much prefer to work with pure wool, but it was the lack of pure British wool and patterns for felting which led them to creating and designing their own range of bags. Supplying them in kit form makes them all the more attractive to knitters."
