Product details

"Somewhere on the train from Aberdeen to Inverness (Scotland), there was a little hill with a flock of sheep having a nap in the sun. Some of the sheep were white, some were dark. And they were scattered all over the hill like a checkerboard. They were playing Sheepy Draughts, for sure.

Whether you choose to play the draughts with your loved ones, or teach a young child how to play the "sheep and the wolf", whether you build tall "towers" of sheep with a toddler, or simply use the checkerboard as a cosy blanket or a playmat, the possibilities are endless to enjoy the Sheepy Draughts."

The board is worked in double knitting, and doubles as a playmat, or lap blanket.

You may use any DK / light worsted woolly yarn. Sample shown uses New Lanark Pure Wool DK. A substitute yarn is shown below.

A small amount of the yarn is felted to create the heads of the sheep pieces.
