So many steps to becoming a business. Two people, four feet and what seemed like a million steps to starting a business.
Wae and Amanda met in 2012 due to their common interest in the fiber arts. Each had their own Etsy shops and Amanda found herself in need of a drum carder. Wae kindly let Amanda use her drum carder free of charge and that day Amanda made three lovely batts of wool for spinning. Using a combination of plant dyed fibers and Greener Shades dyed fibers Amanda came away with beautifully blended batts she knew she would love to spin or sell. Thus began a friendship that later became a business partnership.
In 2013, Wae and Amanda bought Cloverhill Yarn Shop. Until recently, Tempting Ewe Yarns have only been available through the shop or at one of the Fiber Festivals throughout the year. You can now find also find it at Yarn Matters in Williamsburg, VA and Looped Yarn Works in Washington, D.C.
Wae and Amanda’s dyeing styles and color choices vary enough that their dyed yarns appeal to a variety of customers.
Although Wae enjoys dyeing deep and saturated colors and Amanda’s colors tend toward the lighter side, both have also been known to create colors that leave customers guessing whose dye baby they’ve fallen in love with.
