We are La Lana Wools - plant-dyeing exquisite natural fibers in Taos, New Mexico for over thirty years. We recently said Bye-Bye to our Brick & Mortar incarnation and are taking this art form back to what originally inspired me: Spinning and Plant Dyeing.

(To see what loyal La Lana Fiberistas said upon our store's closing, follow this link:

We are now offering Card Slivers, hand-spinners Rovings, Felt, and Last-of-their-kind Yarns - all dyed with our Plant Dyes...A Fiberista's Paradise.

Our dyeing philosophy is to prepare the fibers and dyes to the best of our ability and let Serendipity take over. We are also big fans of Random Factors and Textures. Your yarns will reflect these interests and will be unique.

In support of our unique yarns we have a very large collection of patterns that have been exclusively designed for us by some of the most creative designers around.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
We currently only accept payment through Paypal. Items will ship out once your payment's cleared - please be aware this can take up to a week with Paypal. If an item goes unpaid after 3 days, and we haven't made special arrangements with you, we reserve the right to re-list it.

Because our shop is no longer in production mode, ALL SALES ARE FINAL. NO RETURNS. Thanks so much for understanding.
Since we're a wee operation, shipping will only happen on Wednesdays. So, keep this in mind when you order. If it's urgent, however, send us an email at lalanastore [at] lalanawools [dot] com or call 575-758-9631 and we'll do our best to get it to you sooner.

Your order will ship to the address you choose during checkout on Etsy.
We use UPS for most orders. Patterns only (which ship in a mailer) travel via USPS. Depending on when you order (since we usually ship just once a week), your item can take from 5-14 days to arrive. Tracking numbers are available for all orders - just ask via Etsy or e-mail.

Items shipped internationally go through customs, and sometimes can be delayed either in the U.S. or their destination country. Because international tracking can be quite expensive, I only offer it at customer's request--an additional shipping charge will apply. Feel free to ask about the options.

It's also important to consider taxes and import duties when placing an international order--these are the customer's responsibility and may represent an additional cost. If you're concerned about additional costs that may be incurred in customs, please contact your country's customs office for detailed information, since policies vary depending on where you live. We cannot grant a return because of high import duties or taxes. Thanks for understanding.
