Announcement   Hello! Thanks for stopping by to look at my handspun yarns. New stock is being added constantly. I use fibers hand-culled from some of the best-loved independent dyers here on Etsy, other websites, and the fiber festival circuit, and I do so because I can always count on their dedication to a quality product.
If you've never woven, crocheted or knit with handspun yarn, this is your opportunity to do so. Not a crafter? No problem. You can wear any of these hanks as they are, draped colorfully around your neck as a scarf and pinned in place with a shawl pin or a simple brooch.
Try a skein and be inspired!
(Are you looking for your favorite colors and don't see them listed? Contact me to discuss a custom order.)
Dedicated to spinsterhood since 2012.

Amazing quality yarn and great communication by the seller. I was looking for a particular colored yarn and she was able to spin it for me. Looking forward to shopping again

Beautiful wool, very well spun and thoughtfully packaged with a gracious note . The colors were as expected. It will be part of my next afghan and I will eventually buy more from this shop. Pictures to follow.

About

My spinning story

In 2012 I learned to spin using a spindle on loan from a friend. I was immediately drawn to the feel of the wool drafting through my fingertips and the swirling of colors merging together to form yarn. I was utterly transfixed. Handspinning became all I thought about and for the next year or so, I spun day and night using that borrowed spindle. Visions of colors, textures and handspun would wake me up in the middle of the night ... (and still do).
Eventually I did acquire a wheel (or two), just so that I could speed up my handspun production.
Today I still spin yarn like a maniac, I still dream about colors and handspun, only I've managed to merge my career as a freelance writer with my handspinning lifestyle.
Every item in my shop is hand-crafted by me, with my handspun yarn as its base. Some are borne of articles I've written or queried, others just for the simple love of creation. Thank you for stopping by to take a look!

Frequently asked questions

Refunds and exchanges

Due to the nature of handspun yarn and its properties, no two skeins will ever turn out exactly the same. This a great part of its beauty.

It is also why my mug-rug/coaster sets will always vary in some manner from what you see online. I simply cannot guarantee which yarns I have on hand, nor the order in which I have woven them. What I can guarantee is that I carefully select each fiber and every color I weave into your coasters.

I hope my art brings color and joy to your days.

Returns will be reviewed on a case by case basis. Item must be returned within 14 days of its receipt, in the same condition in which it was sent. Return shipping will be the responsibility of the buyer in this instance. Thank you for your understanding.
