I wanted some worsted weight and hoped to get some soft yarn in a pretty color for fall/winter... This fits the bill to say the least. Very lovely!! One of those that it's almost hard to use because it is so special.

I don't usually go for this sort of colorway, but I am glad I did because it is stunning in person (as it is in the photos).

About

Original Hand dyed yarns from Long Island, NY.

I began knitting over 10 years ago in college and quickly discovered how therapeutic and productive it was. I would knit in between painting classes at school using the wooden ends of paint brushes (usually different sizes), which produced some pretty wonky scarves! I loved everything about it immediately. I couldn't wait to finish a painting so I could reward myself with some knitting time.
After graduating art school, I just felt I that I needed a break from paint and canvas, so I picked up the needles full time, and haven't been able to put them down since. It wasn't long before my love for art and knitting transformed into one big yarn ball of...love. I began dyeing, relearning color theory, and designing patterns. Of course my need to share all of these things took priority as well, and thus Lambstrings was born!

I mean, really...
What's not to love about yarn? The look, the feel, the origin, creating the color, dyeing the yarn, the process of creating a personal handmade piece of art, and finally, the finished piece, it's a no-brainer!
So much love and heart goes into creating a handmade piece. It is truly the most thoughtful gift one could share with a loved one or cherish for themselves.

My mission is to provide the most beautiful building blocks for those treasured items!

My colors are inspired by nature, people, stories, and emotions. They are colors that I wish were more available, colors that make me happy, colors that I have fallen in love with and want to wear. I am always looking fore more inspiration and experimenting with new ideas!
I only work with soft and strong yarns, so my products are long lasting and functional as well as unique, fun, and beautiful!




I use non-toxic acid dyes in a pet friendly, smoke free environment.

Disclaimer:
All of my yarns are hand dyed by me, immersion style, and while I have specific recipes and rituals to create each color, it is inevitable that there will be slight but naturally occurring differences between skeins, even in the same dye lot.
Also please note that different fibers absorb the same dyes at different rates, so there will be slight but naturally occurring color differences between yarn types.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
Please let me know as soon as possible through convo if you are unhappy with your items, so that I may do my best to resolve the problem.

I do my very best to accurately represent each color photographically, being mindful of each individual's monitor/screen settings. All of my photos are taken outdoors in natural daylight so I am working with the elements. Each of my listed yarns come with a color description to be sure there is no further confusion. If you are unsure about a color, please let me know. I am understanding of this and will do my best to provide further information if needed.

Stocked items are refundable (not including s/h either way) if the items are received within 40 days of the date purchased, and it is received in the same condition as it was sold. In this case, I ask that you provide a tracking number so that I may keep you up to date on the transaction.
** Unfortunately, I do not accept exchanges. If you are interested in another item, please purchase it through the Etsy shop and request a refund on your current item as stated above.

Custom orders will be credited an 80% refund (not including s/h either way) if the items are received within 40 days of the date purchased (i.e. when paid in full) and if the item is in the same condition as it was sold.

General/Natural issues: (oh boy, knots)
As I hand hank each skein, I inspect and touch every inch of the yarn before I dye it, so if there is a knot, I will know. In this case, the item description will include "contains knot/s." However, there is just the slightest chance for human error. If you find a horrible knot that is unbearable and has not been documented, please let me know.
In most cases, the single item in question will be refunded as a "stocked item," upon it's return to me.
If you do find excessive knots, and decide not to return the item, I would like to know so that I may resolve any future quality control issues.
I hate knots, too.


*Please Note: Items must be clean! Items that have been balled, wound, re-skiened or used in any way may not be returned. If there is a problem with the item after this is done, please convo me and I will do my best to resolve the problem.

Additional policies and FAQs
FAQ's
1: I see a listings that I love, but I need a larger quantity! How can I order more?
A: I am more than happy to create a custom listing just for you! If you need lots of skeins for a blanket/sweater/ etc, I can make it happen. Just let me know how many. I will create a separate listing with a "RESERVED for (your name)" and post it to the shops main page. This listing will include pricing for all requested skeins and shipping, listed as one item. As soon as payment is confirmed, I will begin creating. Custom orders take a little longer to create.

2: Do you have a "Dyed to order" section?
A: Not as of yet. The reason is simply because this is not my only occupation (I really wish it was). I work 2 other jobs. Due to time restraints, It is not possible to complete a list of custom orders AND stock the shop efficiently to showcase all of my available colorways. I never turn down a custom request unless I am unable to work (hospital, vacation, etc).

3: Do you ever create a listing with more than 2-4 skeins available?
A: It is very rare. Most listings have 2 skeins available. Some of my more popular colorways have 4 skeins available. Again, I love to do custom orders, so please don't be afraid to let me know if you require more skeins!

4: Are there dye lots on your yarns?
A: As long as the skeins are dyed together, they will have the same dye lot. All listings provide that information in the descriptions. Custom orders are always dyed together.
Variegated/speckled yarns always have the same basic coloration, but due to the nature of hand dyeing, the color lengths/speckle patterns will vary (even in the same dye lot). It is highly recommended to alternate skeins by row when working with more than one skein, since this will prevent color pooling.

5: I ordered some yarn but I need one more skein to complete my project! Do you have any more in this dye lot?
A: Any time a new bath is created from scratch, it will always be a different dye lot. The good news is, I have a very strict recipe for each colorway, and I make lots of notes if something is slightly altered. Chances are that your additional skein will look the same, but it is highly recommended that you purchase a bit more yarn than needed in your initial order (this is true for ANY yarn, regardless of brand).

6: I ordered a color, but it wasn't what I was expecting. What can we do?
A: All of my photos are taken in natural daylight to accomplish the best possible color representation for you. In addition, I have provided a color description with all listing to eliminate color confusion. But keep in mind, different bases absorb the dyes at different rates/amounts! Cashmere and alpaca tend to be less vibrant, and non-superwash has very little sheen.
**Here's what you can do on your end first:
Please make sure that your monitor settings are accurate, and you have fully read the description. If something is unclear, you are more than welcome to ask me about it.
Still unsure? Do not despair! Please contact me. There is always a way to work it out. I do not want you to be unhappy. Please see "Refund policies" for additional information.

7: I need a color/base that you have discontinued, can I still get it?
A: Contact me directly. Bases are tricky since they are more often discontinued by the manufacturer. Colorways are easier. I keep a detailed record of discontinued color recipes, so they can be recreated if needed.

8: I purchased a pattern, but I don't understand a certain section. Can you help me?
A: ABSOLUTELY! Contact me. I love to talk about knitting and I want to help!
