Employing women on the ranch is also a point of pride to Jeanne. Son Blaine’s wife, Keelia, is the full-time warehouse manager at Imperial Yarn, along with five other local women, in addition to Cohen being creative director. They call themselves the Imperial Yarn Girls (buttons available with orders) and have set up headquarters in the historic Hinton House, which the Carvers have restored (they live in the 1970s brick home built for George Ward). Jeanne spent 15 months researching and writing the application for a National Historic District designation, which the 22-acre ranch headquarters received in 1993.
Authors, environmentalists, yarn aficionados, Vogue Knitting and schoolchildren who have been known to serenade the sheep all have made pilgrimages to the ranch. Jeanne has embraced education and sharing the history of the ranch to anyone who wants to listen.
“The efforts … are simply our way of honoring the past as we constantly adapt and find the way forward to a solid future,” she says.
