Alice is an active member of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust with a passion for wool from rare and native British sheep breeds and has her own small flock of Manx Loaghtan sheep. She joined the Wool Clip in 2013 where she sells her spun yarn for knitting and carded fleece for spinning and felt making. Alice has been knitting since a child and creating her own designs for many years.
Alice is based in Cliburn and is a keen photographer. Her range of
woolly cards complement the wool that she sells and uses in her designs.
Photos of sheep crop up on most that she does, including her range of
patterns. Many of her hand knits also contain wool from specific sheep
Also trading as Sheepfold, Alice designs bag kits to knit-and-felt,
cushions and other items, many of which contain wool from native breeds.
Coloured sheep breeds are a particular favourite.
Her first book of knit-and-felt bag patterns was published in 2009.
