Lovely, lovely little shop at the back of Cross Lanes Farm where you'll find a selection of 100% British wool, locally produced. Ann, Ruth and David are as friendly as you could wish for, the shop is cosy and rustic and the wool os gorgeous.

We have stocked the Sheepshop's Wensleydale yarn sin our shop for over 2 years but if you are in this neck of the woods you must visit. Opening times vary but if can call inadvance there is generally someone there who'll let you in! The shop also sells a good selection of exclusive patterns, finished garments handknit by local ladies of leisure and some gorgeous supplies (buttons, notions etc) including handmade wooden knitting sticks, which you'd be hard pressed to find in many knitting shops.

The location makes it a must-visit shop too, just outside the little town of Leyburn and nestled among rolling countryside in the Yorkshire Dales. Gorgeous!
