Welcome to Slightly Sheepish

The bustling market town of Skipton is perched on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales with its dry stone walls and stunning sheep covered scenery, in fact the name Skipton is derived from the Olde English “sceap” meaning sheep, and “tun” meaning town. What better place could there be for Slightly Sheepish to have its home!

My own love of all things woolly started with the many patient hours my Gran, my Aunt and my Mum spent with me as a child. I’ve been attached to a crochet hook or a pair of knitting needles ever since!

I’m hoping to pass on my boundless enthusiasm for woolly craft and to help you on your own quest for woolly happiness we have gathered together a selection of gorgeous beaded knitting needles and crochet hooks, squidgy soft yarns in beautiful colours, delightfully appealing starter kits for would be knitters and patterns to inspire you so please come in and have a browse around our website.
