About

I primarily dye self-striping sock yarn with a specialty in creating rainbows. You can find me on Ravelry as "MunchkinMama." I have a forum there where you can find more details about what I am working on. Come on over and say, "Hi." http://www.ravelry.com/groups/browse/show/neon-unicorn-studios-formerly-munchkin-knitworks

    I am a former zoo keeper, current SAHM. Dyeing yarn is part chemistry and part artistry...and can be a lot of fun creating new colors.

Thank you for stopping by my shop. I hope you like what you see. I am always open to custom requests. If you have an idea for some colors you would like to see together, send me a convo.

Allergen info: My home and work space are smoke free. However, I do have birds & cats. I take special care to keep the cats away from my products, but because they share my home I cannot guarantee that my yarns are allergen free.

My prices are based on the price I paid for the yarn and what dyeing technique I used to achieve a certain look.

There are three tiers.
Tier 1: Semi-solid and tonal skeins
Tier 2: Self-striping & 6-color rainbow gradients (most of my yarns are in this category)
Tier 3: Long gradient progression (e.g. 6 colors in wide stripes, more than 6 shades, or colors in a gradient progression on one skein).

I only accept Paypal payments.

I generally do not sell internationally. With the new EU VAT laws, I will not be enabling sales to EU countries. Sales to Canada can be arranged via convo. Actual shipping costs and some handling charges may apply. Anything shipped with a customs form will NOT be marked as a gift and buyers are responsible for any VAT or import tax upon receipt.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I do accept custom orders. Prepayment of custom orders is required before I will begin dyeing yarn or fiber. Some colorways are not repeatable and may not be eligible for custom order.

Care instructions

I recommend hand washing of items made from hand dyed yarns even if the wool yarn is superwash. Gentle machine washing in cold water (of superwash items) may be desired, however, machine drying is NEVER recommended. I cannot be held responsible for any color loss due to abusive laundry conditions.

Wholesale availability

I do not offer wholesale pricing for large orders.
