In the Deep Hue Sea Pop-up Shop

We are pleased to welcome another Oregon-based Indie Dyer to the group of Indies we regularly carry.  Erica Roberts, Owner of In the Deep Hue Sea, loves being a full-time Fiberista, so she can spend more time with her children.  She started knitting when her first child was a baby and then decided to try her hand at dyeing.  She kept experimenting until she got the deep, saturated colors she wanted.  Once she started dyeing yarns she was hooked!

Erica has always been a Working Mom, but once she was able to successfully grow her business from part-time to a full-time operation that meant she could stay at home full time too.  She loves being a Business Owner and says dyeing yarns allows her the perfect creative outlet.  And she loves the flexibility of being able to stay home with her kids!

We love Erica’s use of colors and the vivid results she is able to achieve.  We are excited to be carrying her yarns at Northwest Wools, so we can offer these yarns to our Customers looking for that “special skein”!
