The Magic of Hand-Dyed Yarns and All Things Woolly!

In February 2014, I had been on maternity leave for Winnipeg's coldest, most brutal, Game-of-Thrones-style WINTERS in a century! The only things that have helped me keep my wits about me are my loving family and a sanctuary in my house I call "The Yarnorium." It is a bright and cozy room, packed full of yarn and vibrant colour. It's a warm escape from the grey, bitter cold. I have found all kinds of inspiration in that room and rekindled my imagination and sense of adventure! It's my very own little land of Yarnia.

It just wouldn't do to hoard all that wonderful colour to myself! So, I started dabbling in yarn dyeing only to discover I have a voracious appetite for it. The instant gratification I get from every individual cake, lifts my spirits from even the dreariest of days.

Each cake is dyed separately and I put a lot of care into making sure that the gradients have smooth transitions and don't jump drastically from colour to colour. Every colourway was inspired from my favourite things, whether it's a tune, a fictional character, or a childhood memory. Every cake tells a little tale about me in some way, and I can't wait for you to experience it!

    My grandmother taught me how to crochet when I was a small girl hoping I would be her prodigy. A few years ago, I inherited her "How To Knit" book, and decided to teach myself. Now, I am fully immersed in the fibre world and deeply in love with it!

Hilori's Magical Yarnorium is me, Hilori! *Hi!* *waving*

I'm working on building my own home-based business so I can stay home with my babies. I aim to please and love custom orders! If you've got a pattern in mind for your yarn, or a colour you'd love, convo me and we'll figure out something special, just for you!

Accepted payment methods

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
If you are in any way unsatisfied with your purchase, please contact me within 5 days after you have received the item. If you choose to return the item(s), they must be posted within a week of receiving your package and returned unused, and in their original condition. The purchaser is responsible for return shipping costs.
You will receive a refund via the same method as your original purchase minus the cost of shipping upon receipt of the returned item.

Custom orders are non-refundable so please give me as much detail as possible about what you would like before purchasing. I always try to send pictures and communicate as much as possible as I progress through special orders!

Some of the yarns available for my Dyed To Order items contain fibers that may not take the dye as readily as others available. This will create a softer, more pale version of the colourway. I will do my best to dye it as shown in the sample photos, unfortunately, there are limitations to some of the fibers.
Payment
I accept payment by Paypal, direct payment, Etsy gift cards or credit card. Payment is expected at the time of your order and will not be shipped until your payment has cleared.
Items will be shipped to the address given by Etsy unless otherwise requested by the customer in either the order notes or in conversation.

Custom orders are pre-paid and non-refundable.

Coupons are limited to one per purchase on items currently in stock. If you neglect to put in your code at checkout (in the box indicated and not in "notes") before submitting your order, I won't be able to honour it. Sorry, no rainchecks on special offers, sales are limited to quantities in stock.
Delivery
I ship by Canada Postal Service, mostly by air in an attempt to keep shipping costs from becoming outrageous. When shipping regular airmail, the package does not have a tracking number (except deliveries in Canada).

The buyer is responsible for any customs charges. You should be aware of the customs policies for your country prior to ordering. I use Etsy shipping labels for all my orders and the pertinent information needed for shipping is included on them. If your country requires extra information for customs, please inform me prior to shipping in the notes section of your order.

It is recommended that you buy tracking for your shipment to prevent any loss of packages through mail, this is not included in my shipping rates, but I'd be happy to include it (as well as insurance) at cost if you request it prior to buying an item. I cannot be held responsible for lost or damaged packages once they are in the care of the postal service.

Items are sent within 3-5 days of payment, unless it's a very large order, wherein I'll send you a message giving you a timeframe for ship date. I'll send you a notification when the item has been shipped.
Additional policies and FAQs
I love custom orders! If there is a colour combination you've been dreaming of, convo me and we can work out a special order, just for you!

Photos are of the actual items, I do not reuse photos unless otherwise stated on the item description.

I take great care in washing each skein to ensure colour-fastedness and to rinse out as much excess dye as possible. Brighter colours (deep reds and blues) may still come off on your hands or bleed, but it would be minimal. It is recommended to hand wash in cold water separately, and air dry flat to preserve the colour intensity and longevity of your garment.

Yarn is a natural product, therefore no two can be alike. There may be joins and/or slubs occasionally and this is part of its natural beauty. It is not uncommon to have 1-2 joins in milled yarns, and all of the yarn I dye is hand selected and carefully inspected before shipping to fall within these guidelines. Please take care in opening your package to avoid cutting the yarn.

Hand dyed yarns can vary skein to skein even if from the same dyelot, this is what makes them unique. To reduce the chance of differences between your skeins, please be sure to order enough yarn for your project. To further reduce differences, I recommend alternating skeins every two rows in larger projects.

Great care has been taken to represent colours accurately, but colours do vary monitor to monitor depending upon settings. Some yarns, because of the fibre content, will not take the dye as readily or as intensely as others. The end result is a yarn with the same hue, but a few shades lighter. I always try my best to get my Dyed to Order items to resemble the pictures, sometimes due to the yarn base it's just not possible. Please ask me questions about your yarn before ordering if this concerns you.

All items come from a smoke-free and clean, pet friendly home. All of my yarn is kept away from the pest, I mean the cat. ;)
