About

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
Orders currently ship within 1 to 3 business days unless otherwise noted.

I use environmentally-friendlier packing supplies composed of 88% recycled material.

I ship all orders USPS First Class with a tracking number, unless the package weighs over 15 oz.- then it upgrades to Priority per USPS.

All international orders are shipped 1st Class International unless otherwise arranged between the buyer and me. There is usually tracking to the US border only. 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!

As of January 27, 2013 First Class International prices have almost doubled. I have done my best to charge fair shipping prices. However, if you have paid more than $1.50 over my cost of shipping I will refund you!

I can expedite your shipping upon request (additional fees apply).
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are dissatisfied with your order in any way, please contact me right away to resolve the issue BEFORE leaving feedback. I strive to be a 5 star seller, and I want you to be HAPPY with your purchase!!!!!!!

All of the items in my shop are handmade by me, with top-quality materials and the highest integrity! I strive to display AND describe the items as accurately as possible, though computer monitors and eyes display color differently. Handmade items do have quirks and irregularities which are part of their appeal, but some may not appeal to all customers, so please read the description and look at the photos carefully before purchasing. If you have any questions about the item before purchasing, please contact me.

I will accept returns in original condition. I will refund the price paid, minus shipping charge, once I receive the item, so please contact me before returning anything to make arrangements. Unless there is a true defect, the buyer is responsible for return shipping, with tracking.

Custom Orders:
Deposits on custom orders are *non-refundable* if I have completed the order to your request but you have not paid the balance. The only exception is if I am able to sell the item. If I have no response to discuss payment extension by 3 convos I will put the item up for sale in my shop.
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!
