About us

imageSheila Kershaw         Shop Manager

Hi!  My name is Sheila and I moved to Leighton Buzzard, from Lancashire, ready for opening the shop.  I am absolutely loving my job in the wool shop, and I’m learning new things every day.   The shop is always evolving and is full of gorgeous yarns with wonderfully friendly customers.

hi, I’m Jacqui owner of The Spotted Sheep. As an avid knitter, ok then, I own up,  an obsessive knitter, I wanted to create a wool shop that I want to shop in, a shop brimming over with beautiful wools and yarns for every project, great and small.

A shop where everyone feels welcome, with a fun and friendly atmosphere, a sanctuary for all away from the everyday, where customers can meet other like minded people who share a common passion.

I am delighted to say that this is such a place, the pattern tables that are surrounded by wools and yarns for every project feel like sitting at a friends house, with customers sharing ooos, ahhhs and tips with each other. The shop is vibrant, inspiring and frequently full of joy and laughter – everything a wool shop should be!…

We are delighted to announce the arrival of a new member of staff, Vi Malcolm. She is a very experienced knitter who shares our passion! Full of fun, laughter and enthusiasm, the perfect new team member (a photo will appear here as soon as I can persuade her to send me one!)
