Laura Lough

The Unique Sheep is an independent yarn dyeing business started by Laura Lough. A life-long fiber artist, Laura was inspired by the owner of her LYS (Knit Picky) to start selling her handpainted yarn. The response of local knitters to her yarn blew her away and so now shes branching out and offering her yarn to everyone!

At the start of 2008, Laura was joined by Kelly Eells. Kelly has had years of experience dyeing under the name “Liisu Yarns” but saw a good match with Laura and The Unique Sheep.

In addition to The Unique Sheep, Laura also looks after a small flock of Shetland sheep on her farm. To learn more about Square Peg Farm and the flock please click here
