Kalea Turner-Beckman is a natural dyer and knitwear designer living on Treaty 6 Territory in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. She works directly with sheep farmers and fibre mills in her local area to produce sheepy, breed specific yarns that are 100% natural and plastic free.
Kalea is a student in the Master Spinner program at Olds College, and uses her spinning knowledge to design yarns that highlight the characteristics of specific sheep breeds, hand selecting each fleece. The yarns are dyed in her home dye studio using home grown dye plants, kitchen waste, foraged weeds, waste from local businesses, and sustainably sourced dye extracts.
