About RainyDayYarn

Sales 642
On Etsy since 2017

It's about sharing my love of colour through yarn.

Thank you for visiting Rainy Day Yarns

I started dying yarn as I knit a lot of fair isle socks and wanted more of a colour range to pick and chose from. Since then I started experimenting with dyes and different bases, and wanted to share my love of colour. All my yarn in the shop is hand dyed by me in small batches. I like to use a lot of bright colours and will often double or even triple dye yarn to get the rich shades with depth of colour that I love so much.

Any questions don't hesitate to ask me.

Frequently asked questions
Why is Shipping to the United States so Expensive?

Changes made to the USPS have made increases to the cost of international postal services. Please see New Zealand Post website https://www.nzpost.co.nz/personal/sending-internationally/world-zones/usps-changes

The changes made by the United States Postal Service (USPS) will result in an increase to the cost of international services you use. These changes have increased the rate of sending a parcel to the USA considerably, impacting our under 2kg products the most including International Air Small Parcel.

Do you refund postage overcharges?

Yes. If I have overcharged postage I will refund it ( unless its a $1.00 or under)
Sometimes it is hard to gauge how much postage will be, especially during the ever changing Covid 19 times.

How many Skeins do I need to make a pair of Socks?

One 100g skein will be enough for an average sized foot ( even a mans ankle sock)
My sock sets allow plenty for a sock, with contrast heels and toes ( even ribbing if wanted)

Care instructions

As a general rule Please hand wash in cool water and dry flat ( preferably inside out)

If you are making a gift for someone and you think they may not want to hand wash then be sure to choose a Machine Washable/Superwash yarn.

Also Hand Dyed Yarns (especially if they are an intense colour) may bleed into your washing water on occasion. While I do my utmost to prevent this (rinsing until the water runs clear) and if I know its a possibility I will mention on the label, please do a washed swatch first to check. This is would be wise before embarking on a multi coloured big project that has light and dark hand dyed yarns.

Do you have Dye lots?

I dye in small batches (maximum of 4 - 5 skeins) at a time.
Even within these small batches variations occur. This is the nature of hand dyed yarn.
Each skein is unique.
Please if you have a project in mind, I encourage you to buy enough for your project.
Also it is recommended on a bigger project to alternate between skeins every 2 rows or so to prevent colour blocking.

Does my order have a tracking number?

Tracking on Domestic and International orders is now available through NZ Post. I will supply you with the tracking number once the order is dispatched. Once it leaves me, I have no control over when it will arrive.
