Opened in 1998, the Elegant Ewe has become a premier destination shop in the fiber world.
Due to owner Marci Richardson’s attention to detail and flair for design, the shop has a boutique-like feel and a cozy atmosphere. We think you'll have a unique experience here at the Ewe!
We pride ourselves on having a wide selection of yarns to suit a wide range of projects and tastes as well as a large number of models showcasing the potential of our wares. In 2005, the shop began producing our own exclusive pattern line for the most part inspired by our customers’ needs and wishes. This pattern line can now be found for purchase on Ravelry through our shop page.
We are excited to stock many highly selective yarn brands-- Quince and Co, String Theory, and Jamieson and Smith among them as well as local hand-dyer Birch Dyeworks from Lee, NH.
In addition, our hand-dye selection features Malabrigo, Mountain Colors, Manos, Plymouth Reserve and Madeline Tosh.
We believe in excellent ‘base’ yarns such as Cascade, Berroco, Debbie Bliss and Plymouth, and we absolutely love traditional yarns like Lopi and the not-so-traditional blends from The Fiber Company and Habu.
We hope you’ll find exactly what you are looking for...plus a little extra inspiration where you weren’t expecting it. Our knowledgeable staff loves knitting vicariously through our customers- We are happy to help you find the perfect new project!
