Little Lamb Wool was founded in April 2011 originally specialising in children’s and baby knitting patterns, yarns and accessories, but now with as great a choice for adults. The company is run by Jenny & John Bird ably assisted by their daughter Sally who founded the business
The idea for the company was born from a need to find good quality wool to knit clothes for my baby son but unfortunately couldn't get hold of anything easily locally and couldn't source a full range of products on line. So there was my idea start a business specialising in children's and baby knitting and aim to have a thorough stock list of good quality products.
Little Lamb Wool is based in a small cluster of converted farm buildings just outside the North Yorkshire Estate village of Hovingham. We are in an AONB close to the Large Estate of Castle Howard and the National Trust property Nunnington Hall. Please come and visit us to see our wide selection and purchase some nice squidgy yarns.
We also sell knitted garments so if you aren't a knitter but want a hand knitted product for your little one please see our gift section. If you are after something more specific we do take commissions, please email me with your requirements and we'll do our best to accommodate depending on intricacy of pattern and the time of year.
We hand pick and package all our products with a caring eye on detail and prompt service which we hope will make us stand out from the rest and encourage return custom and recommendations.
