Welcome to the Sheepish website.
Sheepish is located next to the Town Hall steps in the small market town of Bishop’s Castle in Shropshire. It is an independent shop passionate about promoting British yarns. We stock Colinette, Blacker, West Yorkshire Spinners, UK Alpaca, Whistlebare, Stylecraft and Sirdar. We are delighted to be stockists for Cambrian wool which is sourced purely from Welsh fleeces. We also stock Manos de Uraguay because of it’s commitment to fair trade and helping women out of poverty.
We stock raw fleece, washed and carded fleece, as well as offering spinning and wool craft tuition.
We have a range of knitting, crochet and felting kits. We also sell mugs and giftware all produced in the UK along with individual hand crafted pieces from textile artists. At various times of the year we have visiting artists showcasing their work.
The Hub is a separate room where you can sit and chat, browse for patterns and ideas on line, attend courses or receive one to one tuition. Thursday mornings are Craft and Chat sessions. Come with whatever craft you are doing, have a cuppa and spend time with like-minded crafters. These Thursday sessions are free to all. 10.00 to 11.30
Our opening times are:
We hope to see you there very soon.
