The variety of colors make this yarn easy to blend with other FCK skeins. Love the pastels.

I started selling one of a kind handpainted spinning fiber in 2006. While focusing mainly on spinning fiber over the years, I have dyed a LOT of yarn. Looking for just the right colorway? Convo me, or email fatcatknits [!at] gmail.com to get your custom dye order started :)

My fibers and yarns are hand-dyed. Because of this, each roving or batt, even within a color batch, should be considered unique. Rovings and batts are the most alike if dyed in the same session. Therefore, if you need a specific amount for your project, please contact me about dyeing your entire amount at one time.

If you are gifting someone with some wonderful fiber, just let me know the name and address of your recipient, and the message you want included with your order.

Additional policies and FAQs
Hand-dyed fibers and yarns are hand made. Although I have specific colorways, please expect some variation from skein to skein. For this reason I do not have 'dyelots'- each skein of roving or yarn is considered its own dyelot. Please order all you need for a project at one time to ensure they were all dyed at the same time. If you need larger quantities, please consider requesting the fiber or yarn to be dyed specifically for your order.
