New Shop Samples

We have been very busy knitting up a storm lately at the Sheep making some awesome samples to show off some of the great yarn we have! Firstly, here is the Pure and Simple Top Down Women's Bolero #284


Yarn: Araucania Nature Wool, Colour # 422, Teal
Number of Skeins: 4
Size Made: Medium
Needle Size: Addi Circular 4.0mm

Verdict - LOVE IT!!!! This yarn is a bit scratchy at first, but softens up considerably after blocking. I totally recommend this pattern and yarn.

Next up:


Two projects actually. First:

Pattern: Foliage from
Yarn: Jo Sharp Silkroad Ultra
Number of balls: 2

Turned into a slouchy beret type hat using this yarn. It looks awesome and you only need 2 balls of this luxury yarn. Not bad

The Naked Sheep Cowl! Free pattern with purchase of one ball of Rowan Big Wool or equivalent yarn. This was super easy and super fast to knit and keeps your neck super warm. Do I like the word super? Yep, I think I super do!!!

Believe it or not, we have another one.


Pattern: Aran Gauntlets
Yarn: Aslan Trends Guanaco
Skeins: .25 of a skein!

Verdict - LOVE this yarn too. It is so nice and you can probably make two pairs with one skein because you get SO much yardage in one skein.

Up next? Green Gable, the child's version of the top down bolero and silk garden socks! wow - we never stop knitting.

Knit on!
