I love yarn shops — HELLO — that’s why I’m America’s Knitting. I’m all about the yarn shop. So, a couple posts back, I visited Loose Ends Fiber Arts. They had asked when I was coming to Centralia, and I finally went. Well that’s like a two and half hour drive for me. My husband kept me company, and we brought our dog Mae. We started off with coffee, made a pit stop, and had lunch after visiting the yarn shop. Wes walked the dog while I was shopping in the yarn shop, and taking pictures.
Well, not even half an hour down the road is a town called Chehalis. There is a yarn shop there too, and it’s called Ewe And I. How could I drive all that way, and not slide into that store?
It has a super fun back story, and unique too! So, There are two businesses really inside the store; Ewe And I ‘yarn shop’, and Black Sheep ‘Creamery’! Meg Gregory with her husband Brad Gregory have a farm, and they have sheep, lots of sheep. So, with the sheep, they get milk and make cheese. They also get wool, and make yarn. It’s a going concern, they’ve won awards and you can find their cheese other places besides the yarn shop! You HAVE to check out their website to really see it all.
The yarn shop is very nice, they carry lots of yarn, and brands you know. Notables that I saw… Rowan, Knitted Wit, Jamiesons, Opal, Brown Sheep and of course their own yarn in the natural shades of the sheep. I did purchase some Knitted Wit, as I have never owned or knit with that yarn and it felt like a special treat. The store is what I would call full service, in that, they sell yarn and knit, but they also spin and weave.
The ladies were very nice and told me all about the store. I encourage you to check out their website and of course, the creamery website too. They are on Facebook as well, so you can keep up even if you can’t make a visit. Thanks for showing me around Meg and allowing me to take some pictures … I’ll be back~ **you can click on any photo to see it’s larger version**
