Thanks for stopping by! I aim to provide you with luscious yarn and excellent customer service. My yarns are dyed by hand in small batches of one to four skeins. While many of my colors are one-of-a-kind creations, I do repeat some colorways. While I do use formulas for repeated colors, the techniques themselves may result in variability within and between dye lots. If you order more than one skein at a time I will only send you skeins that match well. If you wish to make a project requiring more than one skein please contact me so that I may send you yarns that have been dyed at the same time for best color matching. My base yarns are of the highest quality I can find and I use professional acid dyes that are lightfast and washfast.

I offer a number of yarn bases. Although many of my yarns are machine washable in warm water on a gentle cycle, I recommend hand washing for best results and longevity of your garment. Yarns that must be washed by hand are noted in the yarn’s description.

When knitting or crocheting projects requiring more than one skein always alternate skeins to get the best distribution of color and to avoid a visible line when changing from one skein to the next.

Additional policies and FAQs
All of my yarns are dyed in a professional studio that is smoke-free and pet-free.

My photography is done in my home. My home is smoke free but I do share my home with two cats. They generally show no interest in my yarn and it is kept in sealed containers. However if you are highly allergic please be aware that there are cats in the house. My yarn is rinsed in a wool wash before drying.
