Wool, Wiltshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

I treated myself to one of Bekki’s sheep kits from her Dartmoor Yarn Company  as a Christmas present to myself.

I have spent a couple of afternoons knitting. And now it is time to introduce you to my Dartmoor sheep.


She has been a total delight. The kit contains everything and I mean everything. Pretty knitting needles, yarn, even the yarn for the facial features, real wool for stuffing ( I loved the faint aroma of sheep in the stuffing) and a needle to stitch your creation together. The kit has been a joy to knit.

Bekki invites you to name your sheep. All the time I was knitting her I thought she was  Ellie Ewe. Now she’s finsished it’s quite clear that she is Selina Sheep.


But what do you think? Ellie Ewe or Selina Sheep?

    My first thought was it was LambChop which I am not quite old enough to have watched but I have seen clips of. Very nice

  2. I’m thinking Ellie! She’s such a cutie!

  3. I love it! Sheep with sass 👍

  4. Definitely Selina Sheep! Hugs, Tamara

  5. That’s so cute! I love it and I know just the odor (fragrance?!) you refer to when you mention the “aroma of sheep”! I think that’s the lanolin in the wool? Love it, too!

  6. I think somehow I would plump for Selina but she is delightful whatever her name.

  7. Great to meet your new sheep 🙂 Thank you so much for such a lovely write-up about the kit. And so glad you enjoyed knitting her. I think she looks like a Selina. Definitely not a Ewan! 🙂

  8. She certainly makes me smile! A flock in the making!

  9. I’m partial to Ellie, but maybe she is the younger one waiting in the yarn gasket?

    So cute! You may have to start your own flock. ;- ) Personally, I prefer Selina.

  11. The little sheep is so cute!

  12. Whatever you end up calling her, she’s a cutie. I bought my sister a kit for Christmas and I’m hoping she’ll have the woolly result to show me soon.

  13. As I was reading, I was thinking Ewenice (like Kate) and Ewenique. I like both of the names you’ve chosen. She’s adorable. Or is she actually a he? Ewan for example.

  14. What a lovely little sheep.

  15. Very cute. I Bought one for my mum for christmas and made already too. Great gift idea. 🙂

  16. Adorable!
    I favour Selina, just because!

  17. She is adorable and I think Ellie is a perfect name for a diminutive sheep. But I agree, she might need a sister. 😉

  18. I think she looks like a Selina! 😊

  19. Selina Sheep! She’s so lovely. It’s so nice to see one of Bekki’s sheep kits being made. Just gorgeous… 🙂 🙂

    I think Selina is a perfect name for your beautiful sheep, well done xx

  21. Funny, I thought she looked rather like my dear departed Ewenice… same roman nose, same amiable expression.

  22. She is adorable!! I would say that she looks like Selina Sheep to me:)

    hhhm I think she’s an Ellie Ewe, and that you’ll have to get knitting again to make her twin sister, Selina Sheep ^^
