Social media has introduced me to so many independent dyers… It’s simultaneously overwhelming and wonderful! I know it’s not always a great thing, but social media connects us in so many ways that used to be impossible! Now I can order hand-dyed, gloriously speckled skeins of yarn from a lady in Florida! Casual Fashion Queen is based in that sunny state and is run by Sheena, a native of New Jersey.
Naturally, I fell in love with Sheena’s speckled skeins. Have you sensed a pattern in my tastes?!
Sheena offers Casual Fashion Queen in a number of bases, including…
Alpaca and Silk (Lace – 74/26)
Mohair and Silk (Lace – 72/28)
Plush Merino Sock (80/20 Superwash)
Cozy Merino (Fingering – 100% Superwash)
Merino Singles (Fingering Superwash, 1-ply)
Sparkly Sock (70/20/5 Stellina)
Untreated Sport (100% Non – Superwash)
Merino DK (100% Superwash)
Untreated DK (100% Untreated Superfine Merino)
Most of what Sheena dyes contains her glorious speckles! There are some variegated colors that contain more saturated colors than just speckles…..but who can resist the speckles! And Sheena’s colors, in general, are just so vibrant and beautiful!
On the Casual Fashion Queen website, there is generally plenty of yarn that is ready to ship and some that can be pre-ordered. Sheena’s yarn is gradually popping up in yarn stores across the country. And it’s so exciting to see her business grow!
Ease of Shopping
The Casual Fashion Queen website is super easy to use! And Sheena provides you with a lot of shop news via Instagram, so be sure to follow her.
The cost of shipping on the Casual website is very reasonable.
Sheena is definitely a yarn dyer to watch. Her colors are just so beautiful and she’s always coming up with something that takes your breath away.
