Description

It was "recycled" (unraveled) from a high-quality sweater. "Go Green" with your knitting!

This wonderful yarn has a lovely sheen and is white with light brown, spring green, and a little sky blue, like a nice day in the park.

I have used professional fiber-reactive dyes. The skein was then washed in our own pure, handmade soap. There is enough yarn for a hat, cowl, fingerless mitts, or short slippers. The yarn is a double strand so if you wanted, you could wind it into 2 balls of DK weight.

THIS LISTING IS FOR ONE SKEIN ONLY! It will come to you nicely wrapped and wound into a center-pull ball. If you would rather have it in skein form, please convo me!

20% of the profits (sales minus cost of merchandise, mailing, and listing fees) from my Etsy shops go to a Youth Center here in the Greater Knoxville area! The one we have now currently serves around 1000 young people. Thanks for helping our local kids!

~~~SPECS~~~
Fiber: Recycled 50% wool, 50% acrylic

Nikki is fabulously skilled at dyeing yarn. Everything she makes smells amazing too! Both times I've ordered yarn, it has arrived to my house smelling like spices and baked goods. I can't wait to make a shawl or some socks featuring leave lace with this yarn!

Payments

Secure options
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I accept paypal, money orders, cashier's checks, and secret transmissions from your bank account on a small tropical island. No personal checks anymore! I recently got burned on one and that is the end of that. Payment is due within 3 days from Paypal, within 1 week if mailed. Convo me if there is going to be a delay (life happens, I know :D).

Returns & exchanges

Soft Items (yarn, knitted things, handbags, etc) are not eligible for damage return. I do my best to describe the item as accurately as I can, including any flaws or weakness it may have. Please ask any questions you may have first, before buying! If you truly have a problem with a soft item, that you cannot work around, please make contact with me about a price refund.

Anything breakable must have postal insurance. Returned items must be in original, resalable condition.

I refund purchase price but not shipping (either way)!

Shipping policies

Last International ship date for Christmas: Dec. 10
Last US ship date for Christmas: Dec. 19!

Whenever possible, I also "recycle" shipping envelopes and packing materials. Rest assured though, that your item will come prettily wrapped!

I ship on Monday and Thursday, by the cheapest method. Still usually this is USPS 1st class parcel. I only use Priority when it is the cheapest method. Insurance is extra if you want it (mandatory on breakable items), add $2.00 to your shipping costs. Add 50c for delivery confirmation and be sure to put in the comments that you want DC or Insurance.

For Internation Customs purposes, I mark packages Sample or Gift and worth less than $20. Please let me know if you want it marked otherwise.
