Description

Lavender wands are beautiful, gorgeous examples of functional art. Popularized in the Victorian era, they are made by weaving ribbons in an intricate pattern around fresh, long-stemmed lavender flowers. Then they are dried and can be used for years to keep your woolens protected and safe, and beautify your home with their colorful design.

These lovely wands can be slipped into drawers, your yarn and fiber stash, or even left out to decorate and enhance the fragrance in a room. They measure between 7 to 8 inches long and are about an inch wide at the top. The handwoven lavender wands make lovely gifts, and are the perfect accessory choice when giving someone a handmade or heirloom piece you want them to enjoy for years to come.

There are thirty wand ribbon colors available. They are listed below as pictured.

Front row: Hot Pink, Cherry Red, Burgundy, Jet Black, Eggplant, Purple, Violet, Lavender, Rose, Petal Pink, Ivory, Silver, Lilac, and Periwinkle.

Back row: Peach, Orange, Canary, Old Gold, Goldenrod, Jonquil, Moss, Avocado, Chocolate, Emerald, Pine, Navy, Antique Blue, Cyan, Aqua, and Sapphire.

These lavender stems are woven and grown on the shores of the Pacific Ocean from the Lavandula angustifolia, or English lavender plant. This powerful herb has been used since antiquity for everything from aromatherapy to medicine. Once prized by the Greeks and Romans, modern studies have found that essential oils from this flowering plant are antimicrobial and have been proven to show potent activity against insect pests like moths.

Please remember that the best way to keep moths away is that dreaded word - CLEAN! Regularly vacuum the closet and surrounding areas. Moths like dark places such as corners, baseboards, edges of carpets, so make sure you attack those areas first. Also, moths are attracted to soiled fabric, so launder or dry clean woolens before placing them in extended storage. Store susceptible items (wool, silk, fur, and other animal fibers) in airtight boxes or bags. Sticking some lavender wands in with them is good insurance.

Gently squeeze or roll your lavender wand with your fingers to reinvigorate its scent. Lavender wands are a seasonal product and colors will only be restocked in the warmer months.

Please note that because of the delicate nature of lavender wands, they must be shipped in a box, not an envelope, and will consequently arrive via Priority mail. They will be wrapped as carefully as possible to ensure that they arrive in good condition.

FAQs

Many of the items I create are handmade at the time of purchase, and the time it takes to put your order together can be anywhere from 3 to 7 business days (10 calendar days).

Don't know when your order is due to ship? Select "Purchases and Reviews" under the drop-down menu in the right hand corner of your screen. There you will see your order and if you click on "Receipt" you'll see the estimated date your order is due to ship.

I'll do my best to meet these shipping estimates, but cannot guarantee them, especially during high ordering periods. Actual delivery time will depend on the shipping method you choose. See my shop policies for more details on shipping.
I'm happy to make free repairs to stitch markers that have fallen apart from being worked hard and well-loved. Just send me any damaged markers (don't forget the important pieces, like the beads because I'll need those!) and I'll restring, rehang, and make them as good as new. Then I'll send them back to you free of charge.
Miniskein sets are handmade at the time of your order. Multiple sets may be purchased - just message me if you'd like a larger quantity then what is currently available in the shop.

Pictures of the miniskein sets are a representation of what you could receive from my collection.

Please note that my items come from a smoke-free, cat-friendly household. Though my cat does not play with my products (she is totally bored by the knitting process), be aware that a wisp of stray hair could make its way into your package.
I describe and photograph my products as accurately as possible using a Panasonic DMC-LX7 camera with a Leica macro lens in natural lighting.

Due to variations between monitors, your personal monitor settings, minor variations of daylight, color filters, or the uniqueness of the products themselves, the items you receive may vary slightly from the photos you see.
