Announcement   I have a strong commitment to doing things in the most earth-friendly ways I can find. I want to show people that living consciously not only does not have to mean doing without, but often brings unexpected additional benefits. In addition to being recycled, many of the yarns I carry and use when making my own creations, won't be found at your local craft store. My "manufacturing process" is minimal, so I can keep the cost for these unique yarns much lower than the more labor-intensive, hand-spun/hand-dyed boutique yarns.

A sweater that has a single hole or stain, is out of style or was just poorly designed, contains a lot of yarn with a lot of life left in it. Rather than sending it to the landfill and replacing it with virgin acrylic, which is made from petroleum, or virgin cotton, an extremely chemically-intensive crop, I'm putting it to use!

Additional policies and FAQs
I use the WPI method of determining a yarn's weight. I wrap the yarn smoothly, with the yarn touching but not too tight, around a ruler and count the number of wraps per inch. If there are 12 wraps over one inch, my WPI is "12". The smaller the number, the thicker the yarn. I list this number on my label along with a corresponding weight name using the following equivalencies:
8 - super bulky 10 - bulky 12 - worsted 14 - sport 16 - fingering 18+ - lace
