Aalta

Aalta

Small and woman-owned, Aalta Yarns is a newer company, but owner Christine Forrester brings a wealth of experience in the yarn industry.  Her flagship yarn, Aalta Truth, is one of our new favorites.  We love the feel and twist - great stitch definition and a terrific balance of softness and durability.
All Yarn

All Yarn

You will find a wonderful selection of yarns at Crazy for Ewe. It is certainly not the largest selection, but it is a carefully curated selection of yarns we know and love, and we think you will love too.  We try to offer you yarns with meaning from companies that stand for things we believe it.  Whether it's from a woman's cooperative in Uruguay, a small sheep farm in Virginia, or an independent hand-dyer, we believe that these yarns are ethically sourced and help make the world a better place.
Berroco

Berroco is a solid yarn company with dependable, quality yarns.  We love Berroco Vintage, a beautiful machine washable wool blend, and Modern Cotton, a worsted weight cotton blend yarn.  Both come in a huge palette, so you are sure find the color you are looking for. We also love Berroco's fun and playful seasonal offerings that spice up your fiber world.

Rowan

Rowan

You know Rowan, the famous British textile company and design house that practically invented knitting for lots of us.  Anyway, Mode at Rowan is their brand new line with a fresh modern feel.  I saw it at a special Rowan event and was so blown away that I bought every yarn in every color!  It's that special.

These are designs you would see in a high end shop - things you would actually buy.  Clean, fresh, modern - pieces designed to work together in almost a capsule wardrobe kind of way. Brand Director Sharon Brant put it this way, "Mode is not fashion forward, but rather 'fashion reflective'.

There is a warm palette and a cool palette.  Both are soft and cohesive. These are the garments you will reach for every day now and for years to come.  That's exactly what I want in a garment I'm going to spend hours knitting.  I really love this line, and I think you will as well. 

Shibui Knits

Shibui Knits

Shibui is a line like no other. Everything about it is sophisticated.  Luxury fibers, elegant yarns, and wearable colors make Shibui the choice for discerning knitters. Shibui Yarns are wonderful on their own, but because their yarns share a color palette, they can be mixed to create interesting and subtly complex fabrics.

Shibui designers like Shellie Anderson, Julie Hoover, and Sivia Harding bring you garments that are understated, tasteful, timeless and refined.  You will find that your Shibui sweaters are the ones you reach for most often because they are always lovely and always appropriate. 

At Crazy for Ewe, we carry the full line of Shibui Yarns and patterns.  We have many of the projects in a kit for your convenience, so you can just choose your color and know that you have everything you need.
