Note from shop owner gnarledpaw has retired from the regular day-to-day dyeing of all weights of yarns. It is conceivable that we will return for very special runs or colorways. The best way to know is our instagram account. You'll only see us in your feed if something special is going to happen. Subscribe here: https://www.instagram.com/gnarledpaw/
Thank you so much for your interest!

More cotton-blend yarn for spring! A few pretty blues and some natural color... ahhhh. Love working with this yarn, the hand and the drape are outstanding! Plus, it's machine washable grin
Just in time for a spring or summer baby boy- try The cotton-wool blend in this subtle variegated yarn. You'll love how it feels and how it works up. And naturally, it's machine washable! $22 at gnarledpaw!
A new batch of Original Lucky Charms in the shop today!

About

Color is Everything

Especially if you've lived in western New York for as long as I did. There. the sun all but disappears between November and April.

Welcome to gnarledpaw. We love to dye, and we especially love to dye WITH you. That means we not only accept custom work, we actually crave it! We don't believe you should have to cue up and be ready to buy a colorway before it sells out or based on our schedule. We think you should dictate what you want and when you want it. So don't be shy, contact us and tell us what you want!

Speaking of... want to give a gnarledpaw gift certificate? Contact us via the "contact" link! Have a gift certificate to redeem? Again, just contact us via the link, we'll make it so easy!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
RETURNS: We want you to be happy with your selection and we understand that not all monitors render accurate color, so it's possible a yarn will arrive and not look exactly the same as it did on your screen. As a rule, returns are not accepted but we will consider it if you contact us within 14 days of ordering, the yarn is unused, unfelted, unwashed AND is still in its original skein form. Please convo me.

DIFFERENCES IN SKEINS: Subtle differences in like skeins are desirable and unavoidable in hand-dyed yarns. To ensure a more uniform look on sweaters or any project requiring multiple skeins, you may alternate skeins every two rows or every other round (not that I actually ever have).
Payment
PAYMENTS: We accept all Etsy payment options - any credit or debit card, Etsy Gift Cards and of course, our own gift Certificates.

GIFT CERTIFICATES: Want to give one? Already have one? Contact us via the "contact" link! Etsy doesn't offer a way for us to do these as individual shops, but I promise we'll make it painless!

SALES TAX: we only collect Sales Tax for orders shipping within Illinois.
Shipping
EXPEDITED and INTERNATIONAL shipping are available, so convo us with your order or proposed order along with your shipping info so we can get a quote to you. All international packages must be labeled with actual values. We'll then create a special listing for your order with shipping costs included.

Insurance will be added to all large orders and delivery confirmations are routine.
Additional policies and FAQs
MATCHING OR ORDERING ADDITIONAL YARN: We strongly urge you to order as much yarn as you are likely to need because matching the yarn you have from a distance is virtually impossible. To do it, we'll usually have you ship your unused yarn or your entire project back here for matching.

WINDING: Need your yarn wound? We wind for two bucks a skein. Leave a note in the Message to Seller box at checkout and we'll convo you with the additional cost and any (possible) delay in shipping time.
