Announcement   The shop will be closed for most of the month of July while I move and get my new (smaller) studio organized and set up. The 4-ply custom Gradients and Solids will no longer be available after June 15th as I will not have room to store the supplies needed. The 3-ply custom Gradients and Solids will continue to be offered.

I offer beautiful thread and yarn to use for crocheting, knitting or whatever creative outlet you can think of.

My Gradient tied cotton yarn is not hand-dyed, rather the base yarn comes to me already dyed and I tie them together to create a gradient effect. It is a wonderful alternative for those who have sensitivity to animal fibers.

Not currently available...but has been available in the past:
My dyed crochet thread began as a hobby to have unique colorways for my own personal projects. The process is such that I am able to share these with others who have a desire for unique thread and yarn for their projects. I am not a professional dyer by any stretch of the imagination, just a dabbler, so the results are not always what I envisioned, but are always suprisingly delightful!

I occasionally venture into dyeing wool as well. This is mainly sock yarn, but I have been know to dye some DK weight in the past. Whenever I have some available I will list it.

Etsy has the statement "VAT included (where applicable)" shown on all listings seen by buyers outside of the US and Canada. As a US seller it is ILLEGAL for me to charge VAT. Please be aware that if any taxes or VAT fees are due they will be charged to you at time of delivery. (Yes, I know this is a repeat, but I figure I will put it in both Payment and Shipping information so that it is not missed!)

Additional policies and FAQs
If you have any questions about my shop or items, please contact me. I am happy to send out 3-yard samples upon request if you would like to see certain colors or thread types before you purchase.

I do accept requests/suggestions for custom colorways and have listings set up for standard 100g balls of 3-ply and 4-ply custom Gradient Tied Cotton. I enjoy experimenting, I enjoy working with others to create beautiful color combos. As long as you don't need something quickly (I work full time and I do this evenings and weekends) and you have a sense of humor...I am pretty easy to work with.

Wholesale is available for yarn shops, with a minimum purchase required. If interested, please contact me at brenda(at)brealythreads.com to receive information.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Many people ask if a 3-ply color can be made into a 4-ply color (and vice versa). The answer is: sort of...
The cotton used in the 2-ply and 3-ply Gradients is different than the cotton used in the 4-ply Gradients, so the colors are also different. I can try to make a similar 4-ply colorway to a 3-ply colorway I have offered, but it will not be exact.
The other option is to make a 4-ply using 3-ply colors. This makes almost a heavy fingering or sport weight yarn. Similarly, making a 3-ply out of 4-ply colors will be more of a lace/light fingering weight. There is a cost difference when doing this, and I can work with you to let you know what the price will be before we move forward with your custom order.

Care instructions

For your finished piece, I recommend a light soaking in a gentle detergent or soak made especially for delicate items. Items can be blocked.
As with any fiber, it is important to test if you are concerned with the color bleeding after you make your item. Test a small swatch and see how it reacts.
Red and darker colors are always at risk for bleeding, so I encourage you to test any fiber I sell if this is a concern.

4-PLY AVAILABILITY *discontinued as of 6/15/18*

Beginning June 15, 2018 these will no longer be offered as custom options in my shop due to moving and having smaller studio space. If/when I am able to get into a larger studio, I will consider offering these again at that time.

These will vary and once a color is gone, it can not be reordered. It is especially important to order enough of a 4-ply colorway if you have a project in mind. You can order solids of the colors used in a color way to extend the solid portions if you would like. Even common colors like black that can be reordered, may differ, depending on the manufacturer. There is not a vendor that I have found that offers a consistent inventory of colors in the weight used for the 4-ply Gradient colorways.

2-PLY & 3-PLY COLOR AVAILABILITY

2-ply and 3-ply gradient colors can be duplicated. I am able to reorder the colors I have available, unless they are discontinued by the manufacturer.

Wholesale availability

Wholesale is available to yarn shops with a minimum purchase requirement. Please contact me to get details.
