About Purple Lamb
Welcome to my shop!
Purple Lamb is about joy--the joy of creating using soft, luxurious yarn and fiber that lavish every sense as you use it. It’s about color and softness and texture running through your fingers as you create a work of art out of artisan yarn.
Everything in my shop is soft enough to wear next to your skin. I use merino, silk, alpaca, angora, and a few other really soft fibers so you can make wearable art that you’ll really want to wear for years to come.
It is my constant goal to offer you beautiful, soft, and carefully crafted yarn and fiber at a price that's fair to all of us. I treat my customers as friends, and since I started on Etsy way back in 2011, I have yet to have a bad experience with anyone.
I find inspiration from nature, art, music, and especially from classical literature.
Unless the listing says otherwise, all items are already made and ready to ship. I usually ship the same day or the next day once you place your order.
My name is Carla Hanson, and I am a dyer, spinner, art batt maker, weaver, knitter, and lover of all things woolly and soft. I learned to weave in 2003 and have delved deeper and deeper into fiber arts ever since.
I'm also a wife and the mother of seven (yes, really) children. My husband and children help me with Purple Lamb as they are able, but I'm pretty much the chief cook and bottle washer around here.
For their entire lives, my children have heard me tell them to find something they love doing so much that they would do it for pure joy and then find a way to make a career out of it. Well, guess what? I have done just that, and I couldn't be happier. And I owe that to you--my customers. I'm so grateful to all of you!
