Ludlow was on our list of places to visit last week and we planned to walk around the lovely old town, take a peek at the castle and the brewery. I never thought we would find something as exciting as the Sheep Shed! The Sheep Shed is a woolcrafts cooperative on Corve Street and is an absolute haven. They have a great selection of buttons, fleece, kits, workshops and handmade gifts and all of these things are locally sourced from south Shropshire and north Herefordshire and support small local sheep farmers.
I love the workshops that they offer, teaching traditional skills such as spinning and weaving. These are run on Mondays and Tuesdays.
I couldn’t leave without picking up some Clun Forest fleece which has lovely dark streaks running through it. I also fell in love with a pair of gigantic knitting needles that have lovely tops that look like acorns! These are going to be used for some extreme knitting, keep your eyes peeled for the results!
