About

It has always been about color..

It all began when I joined an art class at the age of 9-years-old. On a whim, I selected painting and from that moment forward I fell in love with color. Bold reds, crystal blues and vibrant greens were just a few of the colors that graced my palette as I created one artwork after the next. I've engaged in several crafting mediums throughout my life including doll-making, drawing and ceramics to name only a few. However, in 2009 I rediscovered my love for knitting and yarn. One sunny morning, sitting in the middle of my garden something changed. I cannot really describe it but I can only say I went through a deep transformation while knitting. Just by seeing that bright and textured fuchsia yarn between my needles my artistic horizon expanded. It was like a gap in my creative endeavors was being filled. Right then, right at that moment my dream was born.

After that day, what was only a leisure pursuit; it became a labor of love and fiber obsession. Now, I can say my work with natural fibers and yarn has proven to be the most rewarding and fulfilling. There is just something so magical about taking a pristine skein of natural fiber and flooding it with lively color.

With the same passion that I took this path, with great pride I offer high quality hand-dyed yarns and fibers in a wide array of colors. Inspired by the colors found in nature, I take pleasure in delivering vibrantly colored fibers and yarns to my customers. There is nothing I love more than creating gorgeous fibers and fresh colorways that will inspire you to knit and spin beautiful creations.

Thanks for your support!

Hi! Thanks for stopping by at my store. I am so glad you decided to shop with me. I hope you have a pleasant experience by getting one of my products. I just want to mention that all my items are carefully crafted with the best materials out there. My goal is to make beautiful items with the best supplies and offer them to you at a fair price.

As you may notice, I work with fibers and things happen in the hand dyeing world. Some fiber will be ruined in the process, the dog will pull it while drying (true story).. Well, I just want to let you know that my standards are very high and would never ever sell you a damaged item. I strive for the best and that is what I want to pass on to you.

If you ever have a concern, a comment or just want to chat, feel free to contact me. I very much enjoy a good conversation. That is how I have made my Etsy best friends!

Well, I will let you go to browse around.. I hope you like what you see and decide to take something to spin at home!

All the best,

Karla

Shipping
** Domestic Shipments:
I use USPS for all my shipments. Method of shipping varies according to the weight of the package. I pack items carefully to make sure they safe in transit. I usually ship next working day after the order is placed, in case this is different I will certainly contact you.

______________________________________________________________

**For Canadian Customers:
PLEASE NOTE on shipments to CANADA
Shipping Method is First-Class Mail® International Parcel
Transit time up to 10 days per USPS but I suggest patience. If you are on a tight deadline please consider Priority Mail® 6-10 business days transit time.**
I always buy Certificate of Mailing with First-Class mail as proof of shipment. However, no tracking or insurance is available. If you would like I can do Registered Mail™, however USPS Registered Mail is not insurance, but does offer limited protection in the case of loss, rifling or damage as these packages are kept separate and locked away from regular mail with only limited access by certain postal employees in both countries. This service is available for First-Class Mail International. The maximum indemnity limit is $47.93.

** Priority Mail® International for 1 lb $25.80
Indemnity coverage is now provided for all ordinary (uninsured) Priority Mail International items. This coverage is provided at no additional charge and protects mailers against loss, damage or missing contents. Coverage is calculated based on the weight of the contents or the value of the contents of the parcel, whichever is less. Coverage is limited to the actual value of contents or the maximum indemnity based on the weight of the article, whichever is less.

(Currently working on finding 3rd party insurance)
