Note from shop owner **** ANNOUNCEMENT **** LB Art Yarn will be closed for a while, in preparation for a BIG move! We’re relocating to Maryland. I will have twice the studio space, and I cannot wait to stretch out a bit. OF COURSE that means I’ll have more room for MORE YAAARRRRNNN!! We can all agree that more yarn space is never a bad thing. So, in the mean time, please accept my apologies for the bare shelves, LOL. It’s only temporary. LET’S get this show on the road! *fingers crossed for minimal hiccups*

Have a lovely day!!


*****You can reach me via lbartyarn [!at] gmail.com. I will respond as soon as I can. If you email me Friday evening, there is a very good chance that I will not see your email until Monday or possibly Tues, for whatever reason.

My family, and especially my children, will always be my 1st priority. I know most of you can understand that. Bear with me folks! Thank you for being the best! I can't wait to share everything with you!

Thank you for your patience!
Thank you for your continued support.
Thank you for allowing me to do what I love.

Additional policies and FAQs
- PLEASE READ -

Each twisted hank is meticulously dyed/dipped/painted by hand, and is therefore unique. Variations exist even when yarn is dyed in the same batch. It is a good idea to order the full amount you need while available, as colors vary from batch to batch within the same colorway. I recommend choosing skeins in the same lot, and then rotating them as you knit/crochet.

-I use only professional grade washfast acid dyes, along with citric acid, or basic distilled white vinegar. If you have sensitivities/allergies, please let me know in the NOTE TO SELLER section at checkout time. All fiber is soaked thoroughly before dyeing to ensure proper dye absorption, and thoroughly rinsed in a wool-safe detergent, after dyeing is complete, to ensure minimal bleeding. I do my best to remove excess dye, but I still recommend washing finished project(s) individually, in COLD water. Any discharge of color at the time of washing does not indicate color loss from fiber itself, but is merely excess, and should not be of concern. I encourage you to use gentle detergents/wool wash, because highly concentrated detergents, and those including oxiclean-like chemicals, can not only strip color, but can actually damage the fiber itself.

-I do my best to accurately represent true colors, but I cannot account for individual variations in monitor settings.


****Notes About Dyed To Order Bases****
I often stock the same weights and blends, but occasionally will have other options available. You will find your available choices for that particular colorway, in the drop down box, when choosing your base/weight.


Yarn Base-Weight Options for Dyed To Order Purchases:

*Although many bases are superwash, I recommend hand washing your projects individually, and in COLD water. This will help to extend the life of your finished project, as well as prevent unwanted discharge of dye.*
