It was an undeniable passion for color that prompted owner Marcey Allen to pursue her dream of dyeing her own line of yarn and offering it to others to enjoy. A student of art and most recently earning her certification as a Redding Method Master Dyer, Marcey is now realizing her dream.
Artistic Ewe Yarn offers beautiful yarns, many one-of-a-kind skeins, and many others that will be a permanent part of our collection. In addition to yarns, you can also find beautiful long wool locks and a variety of roving in vibrant colors as well as soft pastels and muted tones.
We also offer some finished products as well, including 100% silk scarves and totes and bags, all of which have been creatively hand dyed by Marcey.
Artistic Ewe Yarn is new, and we have exciting plans for the future. Please join our mailing list to receive information about new inventory and upcoming special offers.
One of my favorite pastimes was working with modeling clay and Play-Doh, not so much to shape the Doh into animals and bugs, but to blend the basic colors into new colors. I could make seven shades of orange! This was a fantastic discovery.
That admiration of color has carried on throughout my life. It was a catalyst for my interest in art in the painted form, as I went on to study art appreciation. You see, I didn’t think there was an “artistic” bone in my body, so no reason to try painting; I would just appreciate the art of others.
Fifteen years ago, I taught myself to knit, which led to spinning, which led to exploring sheep breeds for fiber. More recently I spent three years learning the techniques of acrylic painting. For me, there is a strong correlation between blending shades of color onto a canvas with paint & brush and blending shades of color into yarn and fiber with dye.
