Information about sheep breeds

Many of our natural yarn kits use wool from single breeds of sheep. Here we have given a little information about each of the breeds growing the wools supplied by Sheepfold.

Photo diary of Alice’s rare breed sheep

Key moments about Alice’s sheep are now shared on this page. In September 2015, Alice started her own small flock of Manx Loaghtan sheep. A Boreray wether now forms part of the flock.

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
I have just received the yarn. It is beautiful. Thank you for sending it to me so quickly. DJ
