With 20 native sheep breeds for you to know and knit
by Alice Underwood (2019)
This book results from an exhibition by The Wool Clip in 2018. Alice designed a baby blanket for this, emphasising that sheep aren’t just white. The first blanket she made was given to her recently born great niece!
Sheep of Many Colours includes 20 knitting charts that were created for the blanket and information with photos of all the sheep featured, including her own Manx Loaghtans.
How you use the charts is your choice, but photographs are included giving some ideas and inspiration. The cover features charcoal and pastel drawings of two of the breeds in the book.
“Wow. My pattern book arrived so quickly! Sheep of many colours. I can feel a New Year project coming on. Thank you.” AT
“Book arrived today - many thanks. Have enjoyed reading it cover to cover and think your presentation of everything is excellent! I'll be knitting myself a blanket (or two) to use up some of my home-spun yarn which just keeps expanding. Not sure when it'll be, but I'll definitely post some pictures. Thanks again for a great book (and prompt service).” VL
“One of my friends just returned from the UK with your book and we all loved it — being knitters and owning sheep — we all want to knit the patterns!” DS (USA)

I cannot recommend you enough. Great range of kits and yarn, British wools and a helpful, personal service. Fantastic. LR
Thanks again for the superb service which could not have been bettered. We will definitely use Sheepfold again. PG
