    Hi, I'm Ginny, and I started FatCatKnits on Etsy in 2016. I started with handpainted spinning fiber and drumcarded fiber batts, and those are still the mainstay of FatCatKnits. Since 2016 I've been making jewelry, and have sold the odd painting, too.

    Rob is Ginny's life and business partner. Rob helps dye the wool, but his main focus is painting home decor items. such as display letters and picture frames.

Additional policies and FAQs
Any hand-dyed fibers and yarns are hand made, so please expect some variation from item to item within a dyelot. For this reason I do not have 'dyelots'- each skein of roving or yarn is considered its own dyelot. Please order all you need for a project at one time to ensure they were all dyed at the same time. If you need larger quantities, please consider requesting the fiber or yarn to be dyed specifically for your order.
