Beautifully done. The color was even, not spotty as some of other hand painted yarn from other seller. Fast shipping and super easy to work with.

Color Me Happy

Kristi picked up a pair of needles and some yarn in 2010 just to "go along" with some of her girlfriends who were participating in a Knit-A-Long. She produced the world's ugliest cowl (no, really.) but was hooked from that point on. Her skills have luckily since improved!

After acquiring a decent sized stash (ok it may have needed its own storage facility) she discovered she could still never quite find THE perfect colored fiber for her projects in a yarn content she felt good about. Once she realized dying yarn was an option, she set out, in her usual ridiculously overzealous way, to find out everything there was to know about dying yarn.

After perfecting her tools, materials, and technique, she realized she may actually end up with more yarn than even she knew what to do with. Thus STRAND was born! Nothing is placed in Kristi's shop that she wouldn't be proud to knit with herself.

Welcome! We're happy to see you!

Please note that as you would expect, all our Strands are dyed by hand, so slight variances are possible between two skeins. We use professional acid dyes and afterward use a wool/silk detergent to wash out excess dye. All yarn is stored in a smoke free environment, however please note we're dog friendly folks!

We try to take photos that show the yarn as accurately as possible, but as every monitor displays colours in a different way, we cannot guarantee color selections.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
Returns are warmly accepted within 30 days of purchase. Unless yarn is in some way defective, it must be returned still skeined with all tags still on and in like new condition. Our customers may always request a full purchase price refund (minus shipping charges) or may make an exchange.
Payment is welcomed at the time of purchase.
All in-stock orders will ship out within 48 hours of purchase. We strive to ship them out same or next day! If you need a rush or a particular shipping method please contact us BEFORE purchase - we're pretty good at getting right back to you!
