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!

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

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