Smiling Ewe was started when the owner and fiber artist, Cherie' C Davidson, was loving creating her 2D needle felted realistic wool animal portraits (aka, wool painting). She had been needle felting since 2014, and had fallen totally in love with the wonders of wool, and natural fibers.
During her years of exploring what fibers she preferred in her artwork, she found it advantageous to card much of her own wools, for color, texture, etc. From there, she began playing with artistic luxury batts, but though they weren't the best for needle felting, they were fabulous for wet and nuno felting, spinning, and for making art yarn! She was selling wool curly locks on her Etsy shop already, buying it raw and cleaning and packaging it for her shop, and her joy over fiber naturally escalated.
In 2019, she decided she needed to offer her needle felt art and her wool batts, fiber rolags, and art yarns. And that's when Smiling Ewe began!
Handmade art batts, handspun art and fiber yarns, each made specifically for spinners, felters, weavers and artisans who want unique fibers for their arts and crafts.
Cherie' sells her Smiling Ewe fiber finery at a local Chehalis yarn store (Ewe & I), and online at her Etsy shop, Needle Felt By Cherie.
I adore my customers, so feel free to send me a message and ask about my handmade and handspun wool and fiber batts, yarns, rolags and fluffy stuff!
