Announcement   Use code ILOVEFIBRESHARE for 15% off your order made 5/25 - 6/25. Does not apply on already discounted items. Coupon must be used at checkout, I will not be giving refunds after you order if you forgot.

I am now offering FREE US SHIPPING on orders over $100!

Handwoven textile art + artisan yarn for weavers.

I first started spinning and dyeing yarn in December of 2013, and started selling my yarn in April of 2014 (originally under the brand Serene Fiber Arts), I also learned to weave that same year. Today, most of my days are spent weaving wall hangings out of boldly textured and colored fibers and spinning/dyeing one of a kind yarn.

SHIPPING: I ship smaller orders that will fit in my mailbox usually within a day or two. Because I live in a rural area, larger woven pieces and multiple item orders that won't fit in my mailbox will be shipped Friday or Saturday when I go to town. I ship via USPS only. Any customs and import fees are the responsibility of the buyer upon receipt of package. Insurance is not included in the shipping price but can be requested prior to ordering, just message me and I'll set up a custom listing with the insurance fee added for you. I am not responsible for loss or damages done to any uninsured packages.

Free US shipping on orders over $100. First Class packages do not include shipping insurance. If you would like to add insurance to your package so that it is insured against any damage or loss, please contact me prior to ordering and I can set up a listing for you with the insurance fee. It's usually only a couple of dollars so I definitely recommend it for larger orders. Domestic orders that weigh over 1 lb will automatically be upgraded to USPS Priority at no extra charge, which does include up to $100 insurance. Any additional insurance will need to be paid for by the buyer if desired.

** Change in countries I ship to:
I apologize, but due to new EU regulations that don't agree with my own shop policies, I have opted to no longer ship to European Union countries.

If you live in a country that is not listed as one I ship to, please send me a message and I will be happy to get you a shipping quote and set up a listing for you to purchase. Because I opted out of shipping to the EU, I now have to add every single country individually in my shipping settings so I may have missed some countries.

About

my fiber philosophy = BOLD colors + TEXTURE

My journey into the world of yarn began at a young age, when my grandmother and I would spend our afternoons together as a child. She taught me to crochet at the age of 8, when my sense of wonder for creating with my hands had begun.

Not long after graduating with my degree in Graphic Design in 2012, I decided to teach myself to knit as well. I began spinning yarn with a drop spindle late 2013, and that progressed into learning to dye my own fibers, and then spinning got serious when I purchased my first spinning wheel in April of 2014.

I am now a full-time fiber artist. I spend my days spinning and dyeing OOAK yarns, weaving wall hangings, and doing a bit of knitting, crochet and watercolor painting.

My yarn philosophy is texture + bold colors. I love experimenting with techniques and putting together colors you'd never think would go together. I'm not one to recreate the same thing over and over, as I love to explore new territory. Therefore, all of my work is unique and will likely never be replicated.

I live my life authentically and find beauty in passion and spontaneity. My dream is to inspire others, whether through my woven art being a pop of inspiration on your walls, or through you weaving your own art with the yarn that I provide.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I do accept commissions for woven art occasionally. Note, however, that I will NOT copy another artist's work. I expect some level of artistic freedom with my commission requests. Until I have more space for a large-scale loom, the largest I can weave is 17" wide. I do not do any custom orders/batches of yarn, as I like to make this on a whim with the dyes and fibers that I have. I do not repeat any yarn upon request, with the exception of my Antler yarn.

Can I mix/match mini skeins from yarn packs with another pack?

Sorry, but no. I put a lot of time and effort curating, photographing, and listing these packs. Mix and matching between packs will make me have to take down all the listings and spend my time again relisting everything with new photos/details.

Care instructions

All wool yarn is better hand-washed cool with a gentle wool-wash and allowed to dry naturally. Superwash yarns supposedly can be machine washed, however I personally wouldn't throw something I spent hours making into a machine that could eat it, so I do not recommend it.

Wall hangings can sometimes look a little rough after shipping. They can easily be set back to normal with a quick brush-through with your fingers. Keep wall hanging out of direct sunlight, some of the natural dyes I use will fade if left in the sun. Acid dyes usually don't fade much, so it depends on the piece. Spot clean with a damp cloth.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Weavings will come gift wrapped in tissue paper. Yarn comes either tissue wrapped or in a cello bag, depending on the contents of the order.

Please let me know if you are sending a package as a gift (in the note to seller at checkout) and I will be happy to send a personalized note for you if desired, leave out the receipt, and gift wrap your order.

Wholesale availability

I am not offering wholesale or bulk discounts at this time.
