(Vi)laines in Wonderland

In 2008 (already!), I came into the wool crafts world and since, I'm getting deeper and deeper into this wonderland, jumping happily from knitting to crochet then to spinning, while playing with colors and chatting passionately on Ravelry, this wonderful website I'm haunting almost since its beginnings. And now, I created this shop to share somehow my love of all things yarn...ctuellement en congé maternité. retour prévu pour la mi janvier. d'ici là, je consulterai très occasionnellement la messagerie.

    For me, yarns & fibers are a little warmth in this cold world, and I'm trying to make as much warmth as I can ;)

Here are living the (Vi)laines. They are yarns & fibers born out of the loving hands of an indie dyer, meya, based in Lyon, France.
These yarns’ name is a play-on-words done with the french words ‘vilaines’ (naughty girls) and ‘laines’ (yarns). Hence, you’ll find vivid and muted colors, inspired by the stories of little naughty girls who play angels but are also little devils inside.

If you want to catch one, it's here !

I accept payments by PayPal only.
For France, the shipping will be by Colissimo only, until I find cheaper shipping modes. But if you want to try and get your yarns as a letter shipping, send me a PM after buying and I'll refund you the excess. I can't ensure safe arrival of your items though.

For International, your parcel will be shipped a a 'Petit Paquet International' (Small Package), without insurance or tracking. If you want a more secure shipment, contact me by pm before buying, I will give you the exact shipping cost and make you a custom order.
Additional policies and FAQs
The yarns sold here are skeined. If you'd rather have it already caked, contact me through PM and I'll cake it. (it will take 1-2 days longer before getting to you, though)

If you want unavailable yarns, you can ask me for a custom order. I'll answer as quickly as I can, notifying you of the exact preparation time before getting your order ready to ship.
