Sheila Rovelstad's Profile

About

Wüllenstudio is a eight year old company founded out of the love of fine hand-dyed yarns. I have been dyeing my own yarns for knitting and weaving since 1991.

Often the colors I wanted were not available. Whether it was a certain shade or a progression of one color, I wanted it and the only way to get it was to make it myself. Soon my fellow knitters were asking for my colors as well, and the rest, as they say, is history.

I confess I make stitch markers to match whatever I am knitting! I love to knit my way around a needle and pass an elegant stitch marker from one needle point to the other with a smile and a sigh. Simple pleasures!

My love of stitch markers led me in the direction of working with sterling silver and copper.
Well, of course, I fell in love with metal work as well. Half my wool studio is now a metal working studio.

I also have another shop on Etsy called Coppatina. There you will find knitting treasures as well as shawl pins, amulets and metal yarn ball necklaces!
