Rainbow Twist Handspun

I began my love of yarn and fiber as a teen, when my mom taught me to knit. I am a working professional by day, and so creating beautiful yarn and fiber is a true passion of mine. When I first knitted with handspun yarn my universe shifted! The unique look and feel of it, the color and texture and endless artistic possibilities just blew me away. I learned to spin yarn on a spinning wheel from a sheep farmer and took off on my own road to artistic discovery. Though I don't own my own sheep, I love to carefully wash, dye, spin, and knit/weave high quality wool fleece and locks. I also love working with people on custom orders, helping make their artistic dreams come true!

Handspun yarn is a luxury, I realize that. Hours of work go into planning, spinning, and finishing a handspun yarn. I believe in using, and paying for, the highest quality ingredients/materials and support sheep farmers and dyers with my finished products. I really appreciate every customer. Please remember, behind every handmade object is a real person creating from the heart!

Wishing you creative joy,
Laura

    My love of knitting with fine handspun yarn drove me to learn how to spin my own yarn on a spinning wheel. I love colors and textures and derive much joy from using them in my work. Now I wash and dye wool as well!

Shipping

My international shipping policy is that once I provide proof of shipping, all responsibility is out of my hands- I will not file claims or refund money for lost or delayed international packages.

I do not include a printed receipt, as this is available online and I'm trying to be as environmentally conscious as possible!

I can expedite your shipping upon request (additional fees apply).

Additional policies and FAQs

I live in a cat-loving household! I try to keep them from romping through the fiber, but you know how it is... So, if you have a bad cat allergy, be forewarned!
