I am the dyer behind DagmarEir. I currently lives in Nazareth, PA with my family, where I'm a Girl Scout leader, Cub Scout committee chair and a substitute teacher. My favorites include the ocean, merino and silk blends, Scandinavia, reading dystopia and painting. All the colorways are inspired by a life in and around the ocean.

I spent my high school years preparing for art school, especially acrylics & drawing portraits. Although in an impulse decision I went to a military school & majored in Oceanography, spending my summers out on the ocean in a Merchant Marine atmosphere visiting islands & European cities.

Later, I fell back into an average life that needed art back, but also missed the ocean. Now I find ways to combine the two, whether playfully naming my new colorways, or jumping into painting landscapes for the first time.

I first got into yarn in 2007 when I needed a distraction from a devastating loss. I had always awed at people making doilies & wanted to learn how. I self taught myself everything & soon loved the freedom of making so many things. I also finally got to take on sewing & loved all the choices of bags & later doll clothes for my daughter.

My two kids love to see my supplies come in to see what I've picked out, my daughter tries to claim anything pink for her. Occasionally my daughter sits on my lap at the sewing machine. So if my listings come a little slow one week it could be the extra help from my assistants.... , or an ear infection.

Dagmar, the name my father wanted me to have, but my mother thought they should pick something more American, hence I received one of the top three popular names of that year. ;) This is a nod to my dad, whom I lost in 2017.

Frequently asked questions
Gifts & Swaps

Is this a gift, or swap package?

If you choose "Item is a Gift" in Checkout Etsy will automatically take the prices off the receipt & allow you to include a message at no charge.

If you choose Gift Wrapping, the item will be wrapped in red knit paper, mittens paper, or solid color paper. Along with your message written in a Knit or Crochet gift card. Please leave your options in Notes to Seller, or I will pick a random option for you.

Contact me if you have any questions.

Returns

Returns are reviewed on an individual basis. For any reason you are not happy please send me a message via Etsy within 7 days of receipt of your order so we can discuss options.

* Items opened or used are not returnable.
* Do not send a return without prior notification from me, or it may be refused.
* No action will be taken until items are RECEIVED in ORIGINAL unused condition, this means in hank, with tags, CLEAN & free of scents or traces of animal.
* Shipping costs are non-refundable, & we do not pay for return shipping.
* Items damaged in shipment will be resolved through postal insurance, if it was purchased. Save ALL items, packaging, etc. See Domestic or International FAQs.

Mandatory Etsy Fees

Listing Fees: $0.20 per item

Transaction Fees: 5% fee on the full item purchase price (order, shipping, gift wrap), but not Sales tax for US/Canada buyer

Payment Processing Fees: Etsy Online Payments, 3% + $0.25 per transaction

Shipping fee (not postage): percentage based fee on the full shipping price on top of the kickbacks Etsy already gets from the USPS

Offsite Ad Fees: introduced during the COVID-19 pandemic as "Etsy invested more than $5 million in Offsite Ads credits to bring more shoppers to Etsy" ad. Etsy claims to market products on Google, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, & Bing. When a customer clicks an ad all purchases within 30 days are charged a 12% fee on the entire purchase including shipping.

Domestic USA Shipping, Insurance & Sales Tax

Orders shipped USPS First Class unless weight dictates USPS Priority. Upgrade to Priority or add insurance for your peace of mind. Insurance will cover your item if it is damaged in transit, I am not responsible & they are not returnable.

Sales Tax: Etsy collects & remits sales tax as required by law. https://help.etsy.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000343968-How-State-Sales-Tax-Applies-to-Etsy-Orders?segment=selling

For damages, keep the damaged item(s) & packaging received as they might need to be presented to the Postal Service for inspection. Photos required for online claims. File a claim in a timely manner!

Damage Claims (Priority only): https://www.usps.com/help/claims.htm

INTERNATIONAL Shipping, Insurance & Taxes/Customs/VAT

Orders shipped via USPS First Class International, or Priority International when the weight dictates.

Insurance will cover your item if it is damaged in transit, I am not responsible & they are not returnable. This is a shipping upgrade.

Buyer responsible for any customs, taxes or VAT charges. None of these are included or charged here on Etsy & would be something you will be charged by your own country, usually before delivery.

For damages, please keep the damaged item(s), container, packaging, and any other items received as they might need to be presented to the Postal Service for inspection. Pictures are required.

Free Samples

I occasionally include free samples with the orders unless it will push your package to Priority (those 12 oz Soak bottles!!) or if the order came through Offsite Ads.

It can be a product sample, or just a friendly gesture of a treat.

I avoid peanut butter because of so many allergies & I avoid chocolate in warm months.

Offsite Ads might get omitted because I cannot opt out of this fee & they take every bit of profit. I have to cut all the costs I can. I've sold a few items for zero profit, or it actually cost me money, sadly.

Free Shipping

Etsy pushed for free shipping last year & even told sellers how to raise their prices to work this in. If you don't they won't place your items well in the searches.

I choose not to because I get so many different kinds of orders. If you buy only 1-2 items (less than $35) then you end up paying shipping & a half. Also, I have to anticipate that all orders will come from the farthest zone (highest postage). It doesn't seem fair to me that every one would have to pay the highest shipping even if they are in the same state as me. Let's face it, there isn't free shipping... it's there somewhere.

So although I might be disadvantaging myself, I hope that I can keep fair MSRP & honest shipping to each customer.
