Attraction details
Owner description: The Sheep Shop is a welcoming knitting and yarn shop in Cambridge. You'll find fabulous touchy-feely yarns, knitting needles & crochet hooks and fleece for felting and spinning, as well as items from local producers. There's a very large menu of knitting, crochet, felting and spinning classes on offer, catering from complete beginners to advanced crafters. We think choosing what you're going to make and feel between your fingers for the next few hours or weeks is one of life's pleasures, and we want to make it a pleasure for you to find what you need. Make yourself comfy on our sofa, there's a Ravelry station and tea. Making beautiful and practical things brings enormous satisfaction, and we hope to help bring this contentment to others.

“Little gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2013 via mobile

Hidden away off busy Newmarket Rd this little gem of a woolshop offers an excellent range of wools - from the ordinary to the connoisseur including some local independent dyers (with glorious colours!). There are regular workshops (I've done a couple that were great learning experiences) and knit and natter groups with coffee and cake! The space requires a judicious selection of yarns, books and tools and it manages to do this well. Well worth a visit for any knitter!
