Quality Yarn, Dyed Naturally

Since I was a little kid, I have always loved taking materials from nature and turning them into something beautiful and useful. I learned to knit as a child, as well. It took a while, but a few years ago I combined both passions and started dyeing yarn with plants I found in the ecosystems around me in upstate New York.

After tons of research, lots of trial & error, many skeins and loads of joyful days taking notes and making messes at the dye pot, my yarn stash was getting bigger and bigger and I came to the realization that I would never be able to knit all the yarn that I wanted to dye! And thus, Blue Sheep Yarn Co. was born to feed my dyeing addiction and share my joy.

I strive to provide quality yarns in bright, bold colors that reflect the beauty nature. I harvest local dye plants using sustainable methods and also grow my own in my backyard dye garden. I am currently looking for a local source for yarn, and hope to have my yarns 100% made in New York in the near future.

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy looking around my shop! Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have. I am happy to do custom orders or just chat about dyeing!
