yarn and wool, all the time.

i like to make things with yarn and wool.

I learned to knit before I learned to read so I don't really remember life without knitting.

The desire to dye came about as a result of playing around with yarns for knitting pattern designs.

I approach dyeing much like I approach watercolour painting.

After developing several lines of yarns came rovings, then a spinning wheel, then a few other spinning wheels and spindles in between, not to mention carders. I have two floor looms, an inkle and a mini-inkle, several knitting machines and a sock-knitting machine. In short, my life is filled with yarn, fibre, knitting, spinning, weaving... occasionally, I sew.

Please also visit http://oceanwindknits.ca for more yarn and Ravelry for my knitting designs.

Returns and exchange details
Please know that with hand-dyed items, items may not be 100% identical to what is shown in photos. There will be variations in tone and lightness from one dye batch to the next with custom-dyed items. Display monitors will also have variations in tone and light density, as well as general actual colour variations.

I try my very best to create your hand-dyed yarns based on the original items shown in the photos, following strict dye recipes and experience. However, they are all one of a kind creations.

I cannot be held responsible for disagreements in regards to colour discrepancies due to screen differences or if the buyer doesn't take all photos of an item into consideration.

Returns for hand-dyed yarns are very limited and at the discretion of the dyer. Return shipping costs will be the responsibility of the buyer.

If an item is lost in transit and is insured, I will do my best to recover costs and shipping charge and if possible, issue a replacement. If an item is uninsured and lost I cannot be responsible for replacement.
Items will be shipped ASAP after payment has cleared. Custom dye orders may take up to 2 weeks to ship depending on the current dye schedule and volume.
I ship via Canada Post. Choose your preferred shipping option when ordering. Outside Canada your order will ship without insurance and tracking. If you take advantage of free shipping (when available) items going to the USA or internationally will not be insured and will not have tracking unless requested. If you are concerned, please send a message to find out about shipping upgrade options - you will be charged separately for tracked shipments.
Additional policies and FAQs
Most of the items I sell should be hand-washed to preserve quality unless otherwise noted. Please be sure to check care instructions. I will not be held responsible for any damage to the product if care instructions are not followed.

GST/HST will be added to Canadian orders according to federal and provincial guidelines.

Duty/Import taxes are the responsibility of the buyer.
