About DearMynaYarns

Sales 364
On Etsy since 2020

Third-generation (at least) yarn lover.

I started playing around with yarn and dye after my grandparents died in 2014. It was therapeutic for me. My grandma was my favorite person in the world (and the one who taught me to knit and love yarn). We called her Myna. When I was thinking of a name for my shop, I remembered her singing "There's a hole in the bucket, dear Liza, dear Liza" to me when I was a child. It popped into my head as "dear Myna" instead, and the name was born.

Frequently asked questions
Will you try to replicate ____ color from ____ dyer for me?

No. I'm not comfortable doing that. If you like a specific colorway from another dyer, order it from them! If they no longer dye that color, contact them for replacement suggestions.

Why doesn't my yarn look like the yarn in the photo?

There are many reasons it may look slightly different in person. Different monitor settings and lighting have an impact. Also, one skein of hand-dyed yarn will never look exactly like another, even if they're dyed the same color in the same batch. I do follow specific recipes for each of my colors, but they will never turn out exactly the same from skein to skein. (This is why I recommend alternating skeins if you're using more than one of the same color in your project!)

Care instructions

Most of our yarns are superwash, but I HIGHLY recommend hand-washing your knit/crocheted items in cool water with wool soap and lying them flat to dry. This will help maintain the integrity of the color and fiber.

Custom and personalized orders

At this time, I am not taking requests for custom colors.
However, if you see a color/base combination you want but need more than I have in stock, please send me a message and I can work with you to make sure you can get all that you need for your project and I can dye it all in one batch.
