Announcement   I'm on maternity leave! Sorry that nothing is currently up. Beautiful baby girl was born May 13. Once we're well settled in, I'll make items active again. Please still contact me if you have any interest in a custom item or something that you've seen previously! I'm still around, just taking the time to enjoy my sweet girl :)

Yarns can now be linked to Ravelry! Every base should be listed, so when you buy yarn, you can add it to your stash! Just look up "Cacoethes"
I can be found on ravelry as well; username carmenandliz.
We also have twitter!!! Tweet us at @cacoethesyarn !!!!!

This is wonderfully soft yarn. Love it. Colors are bright and clear - not muddy. Seller is wonderful to work with and so concientious. Fast very reasonable shipping. Thanks so much!

About

A Beautiful, Vicious Cycle

I have an addiction. To yarn. It's a deep, dark addiction. "That yarn is gorgeous," I say. "I must own it!" And then I realize I just blew my lunch money....for the rest of the month. The fact that I plan to use it to make someone a gift doesn't feed my belly.

Then, my friend put the needle in my vein. It was full of the drug Dyeing. Dyeing yarn turned out to be an excellent drug for my addiction. But, as with buying, I got carried away. I dyed more yarn than I could use in my lifetime.

It was time for an intervention. My husband threw down the ultimatum: you have to stop buying yarn. The only yarn you can buy must come from your shop revenue. This, to me, was a perfect plan. I could buy yarn, dye yarn, sell yarn, and then buy more yarn. It's a beautiful, vicious cycle.

But it only works if I have an enabler. Someone who will buy the fluffy, skeined goodness so that I can purchase more. Please, won't you enable me?

    I'm a young married lady trying to liven up the days with crafts. I knit, crochet, dye yarn, sew, and quilt. I could never use all the stuff I wind up making, so I made this shop to share my goodies with others (and to clean out my apartment.)

I'm a lover of color and yarn; combining these two joys brings an eclectic set of yarns for every taste! I love self-stripings, but try to keep a variety of styles and bases available. Things are constantly changing in the shop, because it's all about finding the right fit. If you love something, hate something, let me know. It needs to feel right -- literally!

Payment
I prefer paypal, and like to receive it at time of purchase. All yarns are ready to ship, so I expect the same from my payments. But I also understand hiccups do occasionally happen. I can cancel an order up until the point it is shipped; at which point a return will have to occur. This is fine, as long as the yarn hasn't been used. Preferably, the yarn should still be in its original skein.
Shipping
I can ship to anyone, anywhere! If I overcharge you, I'll refund the cost. If I undercharge you, then that's my loss. I ship everything USPS at whatever is the cheapest unless otherwise requested. If you want overnight shipping or anything of that nature, I'll be happy to (if you don't mind paying for it!) I don't have tracking information, mostly because I don't know how to provide that. If it is important to you, I'll work on making that happen.
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds are happily issued upon return of product or if a product is completely unsatisfactory. I'll try to work through any issues that may occur.
