About TheSeventhGirl

Sales 205
On Etsy since 2017

The Seventh Girl is my fibre-loving corner of the world.

All items are made by me in my home in Adelaide, South Australia.

All yarn and fibre is hand dyed in small batches using professional washfast acid dyes. They have been rinsed thoroughly to minimise chances of bleeding. Please ensure you follow the washing instructions on the label and be gentle to take care of your lovely new item; but don’t be alarmed if a small amount of colour comes out in the first wash.

All items are made in a smoke free environment and stored securely well away from the local kitty.

I take care when photographing colours and use the best light source available, but please be aware that colours may appear differently on your monitor. If you’re in any doubt, or even if you’d like some colours taken together to compare for a project, please message me and let me know.

Shipping
Flat rate postage in Australia: $8.50.
International shipping: as listed.

I will usually pack items within two business days of receiving a completed order. If something has gone awry and there will be a delay in posting, I will let you know via message within this time. International orders will be shipped twice weekly.

Refunds
I want you to be happy with your purchase. If for some reason you aren’t, please contact me within 14 days. You will have 30 days to return the item, in its original condition. I will refund the cost of the item, minus shipping charges.

Please note I can’t accept refunds on custom dyed items.

What's with that strange name?

It comes from an old folk song called the Outlandish Knight. A young woman is wooed from her home by a handsome stranger. They travel until they reach a deserted river where he says he has killed six other girls there, and she’ll be the seventh. He orders her to strip all of her clothes off as they are valuable, but she tricks him into turning around then pushes him into the water. He calls out for rescue, but she refuses, saying, “Six pretty maidens have you drown’d here, but the seventh girl has drown’d you.” There are many many versions of the song but my favourite is by Bella Hardy. Bella recorded it on her 2013 album Battleplan and she renamed it the Seventh Girl, which reclaims the agency of the real hero of the song.

Yes. If your country isn't listed as an option, please message me and I'll let you know the postage charge.
