New Year – New Project!

Our first update of 2017 and we wish you all a great New Year. Time to plan your next project! We now have our Knitting Patterns catalogue on our website as a document that is free to download. We will be adding our most popular Patterns online for purchase soon. In the meantime contact us in Store, or by phone or email if you want to purchase a specific pattern.

We had a busy time both in store and online in the run up to Christmas. The first week of the New Year has been quite hectic too. But we love it! Thank you for your continued support. We also welcome new subscribers to our mailing list. The flock is getting bigger!

We are now actively planning our events schedule for the coming year and what needs to be done in preparation for these exhibitions. Those that are confirmed are mentioned in the Upcoming Events section of the email Newsletter. Get them in your diary now! More will be added as we get confirmation.

Don’t forget that we are also active on social media, so join us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for more news, photos and sharing. Please feel free to post photos of your Wensleydale Longwool projects. We love to see what you are doing!.

Lastly, we are proud to be featured in the next edition of the Knitting Magazine. Get a copy and read all about it!

Our new Logo and new Yarn colour!

Today we launch our new logo, courtesy of Paul Hick from Rebrand Design! Wensleydale Longwool Sheep Shop has been a successful business for over 25 years. To celebrate our new ownership and transition we are launching a brand-new logo. Both the old and the new logo will be seen for sometime as we move over to our new brand. Both are your assurance of genuine premium quality Wensleydale Longwool.




We also have a new Yarn shade for this season, called Thornton Rust (after one of our local Wensleydale villages). As the name suggests it is a rich rust colour, which is now available in our shop and in our online store in both DK and Aran. We also have back in stock our very popular Moonlight DK!



Finally, don’t forget to join us at The Knitting and Stitching Show in Harrogate International Centre from 24th – 27th November. There is still time for you to get £2.50 off the adult ticket price, prior the show, by quoting code EX16 at or by calling 0844 581 1302.
