With just 2 dye pots and 1 pound of wool, a mother and daughter team undertook the adventure of starting a business together.

Each day is a new adventure for Pam and Robin, the dynamic mother-daughter duo of Sheepish Creations.

From mornings spent fretting over dye pots, to evenings at local knitting clubs, there is always something to do, something to learn, and new ideas that need to be developed.

From humble beginnings and just two different types of lovingly hand-dyed wool, Sheepish Creations now offers over 40 different types of fiber, as well as hand dyed yarn, dye, spindles, and other fiber-related goodies.

All of this could not have been possible without the passion that we share for creating by hand, as well as the enthusiastic support of the knitting and spinning community. Although we have grown through the years, our commitment to quality and the handmade principle remains the same.

We dye fiber because we love that magical moment, when you pull a skein of yarn or a bump of roving out of the dyepot, and you can finally see the result of all the work and thought that went into its creation.
