Announcement   Please note, the shop will be going into semi-vaction mode on June 28th. All ready to ship listings will be removed for approximately a week. Dyed to order listings will stay active.

---------------

Receive a free tote bag with any purchase of $150 or more (before shipping)! No code necessary, I will simply add the bag to each qualifying order when it ships! Tote bag designs change each month, be sure to check out my instagram feed to see this month's design. @direful_yarns

--------------

I'm back with a new name & look (formerly A.P.I. Fiber Co), but some of the same great colorways & yarn bases my customers love. Offering high quality yarns and spinning fibers, hand dyed in the Midwest.

--------------

Most colorways are repeatable, unless marked as a Misfit. Misfits are one of a kind and cannot be repeated. They are created from end of dye session leftovers, or sometimes they just didn't behave in the dyepot or were a test for a new colorway.

-------------

I am usually open for custom orders. If you see a colorway you love, but want a different base or larger quantity than what's available, please message me.

Hi & thanks for stopping by my shop!

I am a fiber snob, who loves to create! From a young age, I have had a love for all things scary, and thought what a great way to tie together my love of yarn, color, and spooky things. The name Direful Yarns, literally translates to Dreadful Tale. Colorway names are based off horror movies, books, spooky animated tales, cult classics, and fandoms giving you a scary story in every skein/braid. I've been dyeing since 2009 & spinning since 2011. I previously sold my yarns under the shop name api fiber co, and pinkebody (which is now a separate shop for sewn items).

All yarns & spinning fibers you find here are hand dyed by me, in small batches. Due to the dyeing process, I recommend alternating skeins for large products (as I do with ALL hand dyed/indie dyed yarns I use myself).

I dye on different days each week, so in some cases, dyed to order products usually ship sooner than the time stated in the listing.
