About

Welcome to Down Sheepy Lane

Hello and welcome to my little shop.
My name is Debbie, I'm a wife,a mum to 3 children and a pampered dachshund called Bella. I am the full time dyer and maker of all things Down Sheepy Lane.
I've been a crafter for many years now making my dads eyes roll every time I start something new! During the last few years my love of all things yarny has grown, I retaught myself how to crochet and then after Yarndale I met lots of lovely people and I fell in love with their beautiful knitty creations. So remembering the basics my grandma and mum showed me, I started to knit myself.
Then I fell in love with hand dyed yarn.... Down Sheepy Lane was born.
The name comes from a little bedtime rhyme mum and dad used to tell me on the way upto bed every night.
I hope you will find something here for you to enjoy.
Thank you for visiting!

Care instructions

I recommend that all my yarns be hand washed in cool water. Although every effort has been made to exhaust the dye some bleeding may still occur.

Odd Sheep colours are limited colour ways that are not repeatable, so just me having a bit of fun in the dye pots.
