Good things are happening here at Ewe Ewe Yarns! All of our patterns are now available to browse by yarn weight on Ravelry.

Each yarn has its own collection so if your shop only carries one or two weights of Ewe Ewe yarn you can see those patterns specifically. Amazing, right?

How The Twisted Skein added Ewe Ewe Yarns to their yarn store

This case study by Ron Warren of The Twisted Skien in Bakersfield, CA lays out how and why he chose to add Ewe Ewe Yarns to his yarn store. Ron goes in to detail about his decision to stock yarns and why he felt the product would be successful in his store from the day they arrived and for years to come.

I encourage you to read Ron’s story and see how choosing Ewe Ewe Yarns might just fill a gap in your shop!


When you’re a new shop owner it seems like every day brings a new set of challenges, and product decisions are high up on that list for me, but Ewe Ewe Yarns has filled so many gaps at my shop that I volunteered to write this blog post (completely unsolicited, btw!) and share my experiences with the line, and why I think they’re a perfect fit for a young shop. (You established shop owners know what your clients love already, I’m sure, but maybe there’s something here to get you excited about these yarns too!)

The Twisted Skein yarn shop in Bakersfield, California

Introduction

My name is Ron Warren, and I am one half of the brother/sister team that owns and operates The Twisted Skein in Bakersfield, CA. We opened in February of 2018, and our first glimpse of Ewe Ewe Yarns came just a few weeks before that at the 2018 TNNA Winter Marker (ProTip: if you’re a new shop owner, and can swing the trip, go to TNNA!). On that trip, we were a week from opening, we had a shopping list, and we didn’t quite make it in to visit Heather and learn about her yarns. Our loss. But here’s the thing: The yarn made an impression

When Heidi (that’s my sister) and I were looking through our 2019 Winter Market guide a week before our first anniversary and deciding what to prioritize, we knew we wanted to go check out that place that had those cool-looking balls of Merino basics that we had seen a year ago, before we knew what our clientele was going to like. I think this is the most telling part of our Ewe Ewe experience, and why I can wholeheartedly recommend the line to a new shop: If Ewe Ewe Yarns left that much of an impression on us, it can make that same impression on our customers.

We made an appointment to meet with Heather the first day of TNNA Winter Market, we chatted, learned more about the line, asked our questions, and left with an order for the entire selection. It was a great decision, and I want to share our experience with integrating the Ewe Ewe Yarns line into the product line-up at The Twisted Skein.

Here are some of the most important ways we’re using Ewe Ewe Yarns

Basics, Basics, Basics

When deciding what yarns are going to make the cut in our shops, there’s a lot of talk about basics or workhorses. Shelf space is at a premium, and a yarn that can be used for most any kind of project at any level of complexity is a godsend. When a new crocheter comes in looking for a forgiving yarn for a baby blanket, we take them to the Baa Baa Bulky. When a knitter just wants a simple, sturdy yarn to practice sock construction, we show them the Fluffy Fingering. It’s a great place for our sales to start, and our customers are completely taken with the selection!

Curated Color

The matching colors across the line make merchandising with Ewe Ewe Yarns a breeze. You will have to get pretty creative to make an unflattering display: the colors just work that well together. Beyond that, one of the most stressful parts of inventory purchasing for me is choosing colors, and some of the long-running brands have literally hundreds of colors to choose from. While that’s great in theory, there’s something to be said for a tightly curated color palette that takes away the stress of choosing which of three nearly identical blues to stock!

Class Materials

This is the area that Ewe Ewe Yarns have done the most for us. All four of the yarns are so versatile, so durable, and so colorful, that it’s no surprise that they have become a staple of our classes in the first four months we’ve stocked them. The tight twist means that a struggling beginner can rip our row after row without fraying or pilling. The construction is also beautiful whether knit or crocheted. Many beautiful hand-knitting yarns untwist and become very sloppy when crocheted: not Ewe Ewe. We’ve used Wooly Worsted for introductory classes for all crafts, and Ewe So Sporty is a hit for our double knitting series. Fluffy Fingering is in the perfect put-up for colorwork sock class: two 50g balls in two colors means no leftover yarn haunting our students’ stashes when class is done.

In conclusion

My only regret about Ewe Ewe Yarns is that we didn’t make it in to check them out in that first year, and I didn’t even touch on the pattern support, customer service, fast turn-around, and attractive pricing that have made our experience that much better. If getting your shop up and running has been anything like ours, I’m sure that if you look closely you’ll find a Ewe Ewe Yarns shaped hole in your selection!

Thank you, Ron!

He’s right. I curated Ewe Ewe Yarns from the beginning by carefully choosing each color to coordinate with the others. As a former LYS owner, I knew that other lines were not thinking about how their yarns would look on the store shelf. You can unpack this line and merchandise it with confidence!

I hope you’ll come see us at TNNA and learn about our yarns, huge pattern support, knit-alongs, and creative marketing efforts.

The versatility of an affordable, trustworthy merino basic never goes out of style and that means Ewe Ewe Yarns can help you succeed in your shop.

Olive Knits 4-Day KAL pattern pre-orders start this week

Ewe Ewe Yarns is joining and promoting the Third Annual 4 Day Knitalong by Marie Green of Olive Knits. Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted merino yarn works perfectly for Marie’s new cardigan design for this blockbuster KAL happening in July.

Not sure who Marie Greene is? You might remember the Beekeeper Cardigan from last year’s 4 Day Sweater KAL or maybe you’ve seen her latest book Seamless Knit Sweaters in 2 Weeks.

This year the design is an easy-to-wear worsted weight sweater called the Foxtrot Cardigan. The finished garment is still under wraps but I’ve been working on the testing pattern preview using Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted yarn and it’s looking SO GOOD!

This is the new Wooly Worsted color 73 Midnight Blue and it is just a joy to knit. Plus, Wooly Worsted has such amazing stitch definition that the dancing stitches are really starting to POP.

Remember this is just a shop sneak peek — we can’t share anything until Marie announces the pattern pre-order on Thursday, May 23. Here are the top secret photos of Marie’s sweater sample.

Why join this KAL with Ewe Ewe Yarns?

You know I love a good knit-along and I’ll be here promoting the project right along with you. You can use any of the information, blog posts, and photographs I create to enhance your marketing efforts in your store and online.

Wooly Worsted is a great alternative yarn for this project. The yarn is easy to knit and a pleasure to wear. The retail price-point ranges from $90-$180 for a finished, high-quality, long-lasting sweater.

I don’t think this yarn gets the raves it deserves – cannot find a better quality yarn for the price!
