Sheepfold’s Alice Underwood has produced a book celebrating Britain’s native sheep breeds. Called ‘Sheep of Many Colours’, the book presents colourwork charts for 20 different breeds, to be used to knit up a decorative blanket, or as motifs on garment projects, cushions, hats and more.


Alice first created her colourwork designs to make a special blanket for her great-niece, and later exhibited the finished piece. Such was the demand for charts for her knitted sheep that she put together this lovely book! Each charted design is accompanied by details about the breed, along with its history and fleece characteristics. Sheep include Badgerface, Kerry Hill, Soay, Manx Loaghtan, and Shropshire.

We have one copy of ‘Sheep of Many Colours’ to give away, along with a set of six postcards with beautiful sheep illustrations by James Underwood. For a chance to win, simply head to and enter your details.

(UK entrants only, closing date 11pm on 13 November 2019, terms and conditions apply.)


‘Sheep of Many Colours’ costs £9.50 and can be ordered from
