Announcement   I'm back and bursting with new colour ideas for the coming seasons.
Coming in the next couple of weeks is my new colour collection called The Ancient Forest. New colours are Fallen Ashes, Gum Nuts, Forest Peat, New beginnings, Bush Berries and Golden Amber. New colours (and the current collection) can be found in their own category.

Specialising in premium luxury fibre yarns (and the softest sock yarn) in mature palettes for tasteful souls. Hand dyed in small pots in my home dye studio on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula.

I work in semi solid, speckled, gradient, and other dye formats and am happy to custom dye for you or dye up a bigger batch of a color - just send me a convo!

2018 - I will be trying to update with quarterly new seasonal colourways and also adding ooak colours, offers, gradients and sales as they take my fancy - so keep checking!

Returns and exchanges
Refunds: I'm really hoping you'll fall in love with every single one of my yarns, but if not I'll happily accept your return (in original condition) and refund you. Shipping costs are non refundable and return shipping costs are also your responsibility.
Payment
I accept payment via PayPal and credit cards through Etsy Direct Checkout. Payment in full is required before I mail your purchase.

Custom Orders and Dye to Order must be prepaid before I start work on your final choice. Custom order colors will get three small samples through the mail before having to commit. Please allow extra time for the Custom order process. I aim to complete DTO orders within two weeks. Contact me if you have any requests. I can dye up to 400 gms in one batch and this is your best bet for matching skeins (even then there is often some variation from skein to skein - it's one of the beauties of hand dyeing). It is recommended you alternate skeins every other row to blend two or more hand dyed skeins.
Shipping
I ship via AusPost (not my favorite place to visit) and will visit the post office on Mondays and Thursdays to mail out packages. If your purchase falls after a PO visit there will be a few days wait until my next visit. Shipping costs are what I pay - and will cover weight up to 500gms (that allows you 400 gms before there is a price increase). For combined shipping please leave me a note on each of your orders.

Insurance is extra - please contact me if you think you need it.

I try to keep shipping costs to a minimum (I hate them too) and also try to lead a life with minimal effect on the environment so I use as little plastic packaging as possible - no cellophane here! The shipping satchel is plastic enough and now I'm also using a small cardboard box (so there's less plastic). I can wind the skein into a ball and/or gift wrap (in recycled gift paper tied with a satin bow) for $3.50. I can add this if you let me know before placing your order.

Estimated shipping times:
Aus - within the week
Europe and the US - 2 - 4 weeks

Country custom fees and taxes are the responsibility of the buyer (or recipient).
Additional policies and FAQs
I'm happy to dye custom orders for you - I'll dye three samples and Mail a small sample of each of these to you for your approval before dyeing a full batch - no cost to you.

After approval and payment in full expect two weeks dyeing time. All skeins are wrapped in black tissue paper secured with a turquoise blue ribbon. Skeins can also be wound into balls (this saves you a lot of work) - select ball winding option and/or gift wrapped in tasteful wrapping paper with a satin bow - if you wish - $3:50. Just select the gift wrapping option.
