The Design

"Your very own handknit herd!"

Every knitter dreams of having their own sheep! Well, these handknit friends, created by Freshy Millsap, are a wee bit easier to care for than a real herd. Choose stockinette or garter stitch for fleecy variety—and knit your own flock!

We knit the tiny version of our Woolly Wee Sheep in Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift—a fingering-weight yarn spun from 100% Shetland wool. Shorn from a diminutive breed of sheep that’s adapted to the rugged Shetland Isles in the North Sea, it’s springy, lofty, and lightweight—perfect for your very own handknit herd.

Three skeins of Shetland Spindrift will make a wee flock of ten to twelve tiny sheep. Pick up two skeins of Appleton Crewel Wool—one red and one green—for the bell tie, darning needle, threader, packs of six wee, jingling bells for a fun finish!
