About

One of my passions is to be an inspiration to others and help bring out the artist in you!

I love to work with color and create beautiful fiber art. I spin my own yarn, knit, crochet and weave.

When I first started my Etsy shop I offered beautiful upscale One-of-a-Kind wearable fiber art hats, purses, scarves, shawls and wall hangings, along with collectible heirloom needle felted creations and hand spun yarn. I still make a lot of custom orders for people so if there is something you'd like me to create for you please feel free to convo me.

I started out making everything out of 100% llama and alpaca fiber from our own animals on our ranch and then expanded to many other exotic fibers like buffalo, camel and yak along with beautiful wools, angora, cashmere, bamboo and silk.

Then I discovered non toxic acid dyes and natural dyes. That's when the real fun began. I started hand dyeing my own fiber and yarn and created so much that there was no way I'd ever be able to use it all myself in a lifetime!

My shop eventually morphed into supplying other fiber artists with beautiful hand dyed spinning and felting fibers along with white and hand dyed wool doll hair and drop spindle spinning kits and occasionally hand spun yarns and other unique items.

My peaceful life on our ranch in the High Desert of Southern California offers me inspiration to continue to create beautiful fiber art for other artists to use in their creations as well as finished wearable fiber art which I mostly only have time to do as custom orders now.

My passion is to create beautiful fiber art and be an inspiration to others. I love the wonderful connections I've made with so many people through my shop on Etsy.

Enjoy my shop and if I can be of service to you, please let me know.

Marti :)

Welcome to La Tea Da Designs unique fiber art shop.

I offer top of the line alpaca and llama fiber from animals from our ranch in their natural colors as well as hand dyed unique colors. I also offer wool roving, Cotswold wool locks, Karakul wool locks, as well as loose fiber, custom hand drum carded fiber art batts and fiber embellishments that can be used for spinning your own yarn, felting, needle felting, Nuno felting, and wool doll hair, so stop by often to see new listings. My products are priced at wholesale prices with very low margins so please understand that I must break even on shipping and handling costs in order to continue to offer these products on Etsy.

I purchase top of the line show quality fiber from very reputable ranches and process the fleeces myself so they are very clean and have little or no veggie matter in them.

Many spinners and felters buy fiber from my shop so I put together many sampler packages of various fibers for spinning and felting so you can experience a variety in smaller quantities.

I sell lots of Cotswold wool locks and Karakul wool locks in white for Santa beards and doll hair plus hand dyed Cotswold wool locks and Karakul wool locks in a wide variety of colors for doll hair, Blythe doll reroot, Primitive dolls plus other fibers for doll hair.

I hand make One-of-a-Kind Fiber Art Designs - Limited Editions and no two are alike! Very reasonably priced unique wearable art that looks something like you might find on Rodeo Drive in California or in a New York Boutique.

I also create unique Hand-spun yarn, Collectible needle felted creations, Keepsakes, Baby Items, Tea Cozies, Coasters, Table Runners, Christmas Ornaments, Holiday Decorations, Purses, Hand Bags and Totes as well as other one-of-a-kind creations that you might find in various upscale shops. You can take a look at my Profile for more information.

I created another Etsy shop called MyVintageEtc.etsy.com where you can purchase yarns that I destash occasionally, along with some great Vintage Items.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
Payment
I accept payments through Pay Pal which can be handled right through my Etsy shop. Please be sure to follow through with all of the required information so your payment will be posted. I ship within 1-3 business days or as soon as possible after your payment has been posted with Pay Pal.

If you purchase with a e-check, it can take 5-8 business days for your e-check to post as paid on PayPal. I ship as soon as possible when your e-check is cleared.

I list a shipping and handling fee on each item. Please note : I charge actual postage plus packing materials and a small handling fee for my time and gas to the post office so I can break even on my shipping costs. U.S. postage increased a lot again on January 17, 2016. At these new rates it is very difficult to even break even on shipping and handling costs especially after Etsy fees and PayPal fees are taken out as well.

Handling fees include whatever preparation is needed including packaging materials and my time to prepare your package for shipping and getting it to the post office to be mailed. Even though we do live out in the country and have to take packages into town to mail, I ship promptly. I really appreciate the people that purchase products from me that also value my time and costs of being able to do business on Etsy.

I have had a few convos from some potential customers that complain that my shipping and handling costs are higher than others on Etsy. If you don't feel comfortable paying me for my shipping and handling costs please find another place to purchase your items from. I would like for this to be a win win transaction for both of us. By the time Etsy and PayPal take their % out of each transaction there must be enough left for me to make it worth my while to continue to do business on Etsy. Thank you again for coming to my shop and for your understanding.

I do combine purchases to save you as much money as possible so whatever shipping options I use, I will refund you automatically through Pay Pal if shipping and handling costs are less than what you were charged.
Shipping
La Tea Da Designs are shipped either USPS First Class Mail with Delivery Confirmation or shipped Priority Mail with Delivery confirmation to anywhere in the USA. (See below for International purchases)

If you prefer that I ship a different way than what is mentioned in the listing, please convo me and I can ship it how you would prefer and either invoice you for the difference or refund the overage on shipping and handling once I have printed your label and have your package ready to mail.

I do combine multiple purchases and ship together to save you on shipping and handling as well and refund any overage through Pay Pal once I have your package ready to mail.

If I ship your package 1st Class Mail or Priority Mail and for some reason it does not arrive, I am not responsible for loss or damage in the mail. If you are worried about that then please also convo me and also purchase insurance. I will bill you through PayPal before shipping.

Some people may wonder why my shipping and handling might be a little higher than what others charge to ship. I do charge for shipping (actual postage) and a small handling fee. (Handling includes the cost of any packaging and tape, the cost of paper and printing of the description sheet and packing slip, time and gas to and from the post office since I live in the country.) I have very very low margins on the items I sell in my shop so I have to break even on the shipping and handling costs or I cannot continue to do business on Etsy. Therefore, I really appreciate the people that purchase products from me that also value my time and costs of being able to do business on Etsy.

Etsy automatically adds 9% sales tax on orders purchased by California Residents.

ALL INTERNATIONAL PURCHASES ARE SHIPPED VIA USPS INTN'L First Class. Once I have your package ready for mailing I will refund any overage for shipping and handling through Pay Pal.

NOTE: I am not responsible for any loss or damage to your package from the mail service so if you are worried about this then you would need to purchase postage for registered mail so there is a way to track the package and insure it. Please convo me before shipping so I can make sure that the shipping and handling fees are covered before I ship your item(s).

Whatever shipping options I use, I will refund you automatically through Pay Pal if shipping and handling costs are less than what you were charged.

Additional policies and FAQs
All of my creations are made in a smoke free environment. Even though all my creations, yarns, fiber, roving and batts are stored in a fiber art studio away from the kitties, if you are highly allergic to cats I want you to be aware that we do have kitties on our property.
