Electronic Sheep was established in 1998 by NCAD alumni and multi disciplinary artists Brenda Aherne and Helen Delany. The duos distinct approach comprises drawings and typographic jacquards based on narrative storylines based on their personal lives and professional practices. Electronic Sheep are keen collaborators, regularly working with artists, historians and activists, often to the benefit of social initiatives and charitable agencies.

Childhood friends Brenda Aherne and Helen Delany graduated in 1992 from NCAD in Fashion and Visual Communication respectively. Individually, the designers enjoyed prestigious industry experience in London, New York, Rome and Munich before joining forces in 1998. Initially funded by a start-up Guinness award ‘The Hudson Blue’ for innovation in knitwear technology, Electronic Sheep has developed into a label specialising in unisex graphic knits. The product of a heightened aesthetic sensibility, filtered through the complementary disciplines of fashion and graphic design, their signature style has appeared in i-D, Vogue, Grazia, Elle and Kaltblut, among other international style bibles. Based in London and Dublin, they have regularly exhibited at London Fashion Week since 2011, and at Paris Fashion Week in 2018, and are currently distributing to independent sellers throughout the UK, Europe and Japan.

Electronic Sheep have won several design awards since graduating from NCAD. In 2020 they won a prestigious IDI award for their collaboration 'Mixed Tape' design. They were also won a culture fund award by Brent 2020 (London Borough of Culture). Brenda and Helen have produced a knitted tapestry The Kilburn Tapestries' for this project which will launch in 2021.



Electronic Sheep scarves and garments are knitted using 100% certified shrink-resistant merino wool. It is spun and dyed in Italy. Both yarn and garments are made in safe and healthy working conditions. No harmful or irritant chemicals are used in the production of the yarn or garments.

The knitwear is created by Helen & Brenda in Dublin and London where they live. It is manufactured by their longterm collaborator and producer in Europe. All the knitwear is ethically produced by this family business who Electronic Sheep have worked with for over 15 years. Quality over quantity, Electronic Sheep do not not over-produce and focus on limited editions and small runs of products.

Electronic Sheep knitwear though very cool (ie breathable yarn) is also warm, durable and made to last forever. Thank you for your custom!
