Welcome to Purple Lamb!
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 your own work of art out of high-quality hand-dyed artisan yarn and fiber.
Everything in my shop is soft enough to wear next to your skin. I use merino, silk, baby alpaca, 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 have been in business since 2011, and I treat my customers as friends.
I find inspiration everywhere, but my focus is on fabulous modern colorways inspired by classical literature, art, and music, and the beautiful world around us.
You can use the menu to the left to explore all the different yarn and fiber I have available, and you can click on the photos links below to shop by yarn base.
Unless the listing says otherwise, all items are already made and ready to ship. I usually ship within two business days 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 began learning to weave in 2003 and have delved deeper and deeper into the fiber arts ever since.
I've been married to a wonderful man for more than 26 years, and we have seven children. Yes, really! ;-)
We live in North Texas. My husband and children help me with Purple Lamb as their time and interests allow, 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!
