Description

I am so happy with this lovely, soft handspun yarn, and I hope you will be too. The name comes from the song in the muscial, South Pacific.

I started by carding together pink, fuschia, spring green, and a bit of soft brown merino, and I added lavender mulberry silk to those along with a bit of purple angelina. The overall color is more pink than purple between the soft petal pink and the deeper fuschia.

I spun it at a DK weight throughout. There are slight variations in thickness but nothing extreme. This is a singles yarn. There are 248 yards, so it would make a great hat, cowl, or small shawl.

YARN FACTS
Name: Softer than Springtime
Yarn Weight: DK Weight
Yards per Pound: 968
Wraps per Inch: 13-14
Length in Yards: 248 yards
Ounces/Grams: 4.1 ounces/115 grams
Plies: One
Rec'd Needle Size: 5-7 US
Rec'd Hook Size: 7 to I-9 US
Spinning Style: Fairly even with some variations in thickness
Contents: 89% merino top, 10% mulberry silk, 1% angelina
Colors: petal pink, fuschia, lilac, spring green, light brown, and lavender

Each skein of yarn is handspun by me with loving care and contains a label with all the yarn facts shown above. Your yarn is wrapped in tissue paper and shipped promptly, making a great presentation if you are giving it as a gift to your favorite fiber artist--even if that happens to be you!

Also, as a token of my appreciation, I am including your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order. Both of these are natural moth deterrents. I will include one per order. If you would prefer not to have either one, just choose the no scent option instead.

You can see my other listings at http://www.purplelamb.etsy.com. Also, come see my fiber arts tutorials at http://www.purplelambfiberarts.com, where you can also sign up for my biweekly newsletter. The newsletter includes news about Purple Lamb as well as "secret" coupon codes for subscribers only.

If you are interested in some custom yarn, please convo me. I would love the opportunity to create the perfect thing just for you!

Happy fiber artistry!

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I accept Paypal, Visa, Mastercard, and all that good stuff. If you have your heart set on one of my one-of-a-kind creations but can't afford it just yet, send me a convo. If I can, I will reserve it for you for up to 2 weeks.

Returns & exchanges

I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 30 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Returns and exchange details
My goal is to create something you will love and use for years to come. If you are not satisfied for any reason, please let me know. I offer a full refund for any product within 2 weeks so long as the item comes back to me in its original condition. The buyer is responsible for paying for return shipping.

Shipping policies

I use calculated shipping, so just click on the shipping tab, punch in your postal code, and you can see what it will cost to ship using a variety of different methods. If you purchase multiple items, you will save on shipping overall.

Calculated shipping is usually quite reliable, but once in a while it gets a little wonky. If the shipping cost looks higher than it should be, feel free to contact me before or after the purchase. You can be assured that I will refund the overage if it is more than $1, and I'll do it even if you don't ask.

Unless it's a custom order, I will definitely ship within 1-2 business days, but most of the time I ship the morning after you place your order unless it's a custom order.

FAQs


What's your customer service philosophy?

I am keenly aware of the fact that without my customers, I don't have a business. I do everything in my power to represent my fiber goodies accurately, to ship quickly, to communicate well, and to just take good care of my customers. It seems to be working as I have a lot of repeat customers.

Do you gift wrap?

I package every order as though it is a gift. My yarn comes packaged in tissue paper, and my art batts come in organza bags. Both are placed in boxes, taped like mad, and shipped to you. Because of this, I don't feel like I need to charge you extra for gift wrapping. It's just part of my service.

I'm buying something from your shop for a friend or family member. Can I include a message?

Of course! Just let me know what you want to say in the note to seller, and I will happily include your note in the package.

Do you do custom work?

I am more than happy to make custom yarn and art batts. You can convo me or send me a photo of something you want me to match. When I'm done making it, I'll post it in my shop as reserved for you, and you should only buy it if you love it. If not, just let me know, and I will make it generally available in my shop.

If I see something in your shop that is sold out, can you make it for me?

The answer is a definite maybe. I do make a lot of things that are repeatable, but some of my items are one of a kind. It depends on whether I can get or make the materials for that item. By all means, send me a convo and ask, and if it can be done, I'm happy to do it.

If I order a skein of your yarn and then come back later to get another skein in the same colorway, will it look the same?

Unless they were dyed in the same batch, the different skeins will likely look like they came from different dye lots. If you let me know that you need more to finish a project, I'll do everything I can to match the yarn as closely as possible, but the best option is to be sure to get as much as you need for the project when you order. If you think you might need more than I have in stock, convo me. If I make all the skeins at once, then you know they will match. If worst comes to worst, though, try to save some of the yarn from the first batch when you realize you don't have enough so you can "fade" it into the second batch.

What is the best way to contact you with questions?

The best way to contact me is here on Etsy using the convo button. I check it multiple times a day. If you try to catch me on social media, it can be hit or miss, but you can definitely find me here.
