The Story of Spyn
Spyn Fiber Arts began in 2010, after layoffs at my company left me unemployed. Bored and frustrated with my job search, I decided that I needed a new hobby.
I bought my very first spindle that year at a small Renaissance festival in Twig, MN. The shopkeeper, a fiber artist, brushed a fluffy handful of angora from her pet rabbit and generously gave it to me as a gift. I spun and drafted that slippery, silky fiber over and over! I found such joy in spinning — it kept my hands busy, it kept my mind focused on a specific and simple task, and the colorful, soft fibers soothed my spirit.
What began as an escape blossomed into a fullfilling hobby, and Spyn Fiber Arts was born!
I am a grant writer, fiber artist, and folklorist who is in love with her new home in northwest Iowa. My specialty is spinning, but I'm also interested in knitting, weaving, crochet, and textile creation.
I try to make my policies as clear as possible -- basically, once you purchase something on Etsy, pay for it right away with PayPal and I'll send it to you right away by USPS. Simple. Anything more complicated than that and you should probably convo me.
Accepted payment methods
I love international customers! (I love to think about where my items are traveling.) Convo me to get an international shipping quote.
If you have any questions or concerns about shipping, please let me know BEFORE you purchase the item. I can't do much about shipping once the item is on its way to you. :-)
