Stoller, a “knitting superstar” known for revving up a new generation of knitters, crocheters and crafters, brings the same passion and expertise to her yarn line.  Full o’ Sheep, a lofty, 100% Peruvian wool in 12 vibrant shades, is perfect for mixing and matching.  With tasty colors like Poppy, Clementine, Passionfruit, Honeycomb and Mediterranean, it is a natural for color work and stitches up quickly into stylish fashion scarves, warm hats or cozy throws. It’s also great for felting.

Bamboo Ewe combines the exquisite softness of wool with the sheen of bamboo. A silky smooth combo of 55% viscose from bamboo and 45% wool, boasting a luxuriously soft hand, Bamboo Ewe is available in 10 glorious colors including Geranium, Beach Glass, Sprout, and Mermaid, to name just a few.
