The Unique Sheep is co-owned by Laura Bullins and Kelly Eells

They both live in North Carolina, though in different cities (Winston Salem and Trinity). They were strangers until their love of dyeing, and our mutual need for more help, brought us together. Kelly used to run Liisu Yarns but in January '08 joined Laura at The Unique Sheep. Kelly and Laura split all the dyeing and thrive off each others' ideas and excitement. They sell yarn and roving through their website and a lot of brick and mortar LYS. They also run a yarn club called The Seven Deadly S(p)ins and will be starting a Men's Sock Club-- The Ram Club-- this fall.


Their inspiration: "Yarn dyers are lucky because color inspiration can be found absolutely everywhere. In addition to finding inspiration for colorways in our everyday lives, we like to draw inspiration from photographs sent to us by our customers. Periodically we will issue a "call for photos" on our blog and invite customers/ blog-readers to send us their photographs that they think would make good colorways. We choose our favorites, turn them into new colors and in return send the photo-taker a free skein of yarn in "their" color!"
