Announcement    6/14 - Update - All orders from the shop sale shipped last week. Tracking info should be updated by now, but if not, please let me know. Thanks so much for all your orders, your patience, and understanding. I truly do appreciate it. Unfortunately, there are still a few things to catch up on. I'm back to work on the Camp Blood Frankensocks Kits and will have them shipped soon. Please be patient with me. It's a lot of minis! Anyway, I'm hoping to get back on schedule soon so we can enjoy some Christmas in July colorways and then on to Spooky/Halloween/Horror colorways in August. Also, a Pre-Order for this year's Epic Space Opera installment is available. Due to yarn/supply shortages and the uncertainty of 2020, I had to skip last year's installment. But, we're back this year with the next film, Episode I. Things are a little different this year so please be sure to read the item description for all the info. I promise, unless I am dead, these kits will ship on time. Thanks again for your continued support and patience.

6/3 - Shop Sale Update - I am on the final stretch of winding self-striping orders and any orders that have not shipped yet will be in the mail sometime between now and Monday/Tuesday of next week. Thanks to everyone for your patience and understanding. (Please see update below if you have not already.) To everyone who ordered Star Wars themed yarn, thanks for your patience. I totally underestimated the response to the sale in general but honestly did not expect many sales for Star Wars/May the 4th. I've been dyeing most of these colorways for years and figured they were old news by now. Thanks for your support and sorry for any inconvenience due to the delay.

5/23 - I'm running a bit behind winding self-striping orders from the shop sale. I really underestimated the response to the sale, so thank you to everyone who placed an order. I've also been a bit under the weather these past few weeks due to allergies/sinusitis/migraines. So, I definitely haven't been as fast/productive as usual. Please bear with me, as it's just me here. Orders will be shipping continuously throughout the week until I'm caught up. (Thankfully, the consumer panic over possible gas shortages in the area has subsided and gas deliveries, etc. all seem to be back to normal.) I'm also running behind on winding the Camp Blood kits. Over 1600 5g minis is definitely no joke. I apologize for the delays and thank everyone for their patience. Please feel free to send me an Etsy convo with any questions or concerns you may have. Thanks!

2/14 - A Few Shop Notes:
-Shipping is still US and Canada only as our postal service is quite the hot
mess right now. That being said, if you are outside the US and Canada, are
interested in product/colorway and are curious about shipping costs,
please send me an Etsy convo. It never hurts to ask.

About havirland

On Etsy since 2014

Hand-Dyed Sock/Fingering Weight Yarn

Thanks for checking out my shop! I'm Carol, the dyer behind Havirland. I dye in small batches using a variety of techniques. All yarn is dyed using professional grade acid dyes.

I think I have weird tastes, along with a strange sense of humor. I'm a film enthusiast and find that a lot of my inspiration comes from late night B-movie marathons and horror. I'm also fascinated by the colors found in nature and enjoy natural history. I dye yarn that I would want to knit with, and I hope you find something you'd like to work with as well.

Currently dyeing in southern Maryland.

My sweet/pesky feather friend, Dingus McGee, passed away in March (2019), but his memory will always live on as my shop mascot. Fly high sweet McGee.

Shipping
Please see listing details for turnaround times/shipping. Ready-to-ship items usually ship with 3-7 days. Please also see announcements for any covid related updates, etc.

I try to combine orders whenever possible to save on shipping costs for customers. However, sometimes due to the high volume of orders that might not be possible.

I ship to the address on file with Etsy. Please check to make sure that it is correct. If you find any errors with your address on file, please contact me immediately. As a small business, I cannot issue refunds for orders sent to the wrong address.

Orders ship via USPS. In the US, orders under 16oz ship via First Class. Orders over 16oz have to ship Priority. Tracking is included for both First Class and Priority.

International orders are shipped via USPS First Class International. International orders can take up to 5 weeks for delivery, depending on the destination. USPS only guarantees tracking within the US, however, you might be able to continue tracking your order by entering the tracking info into your country's postal service website. I can't guarantee that this will work, but I have had a few customers let me know that they were able to do so.

Please note that I cannot be held responsible for any customs fees, duties, and additional taxes.
Additional policies and FAQs
Care is taken to represent colors as accurately as possible, however please note that all monitors are calibrated differently. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to send me a message via Etsy Convo.

Interested in a colorway that's not currently listed in the shop? Send me a convo/request, most likely I can dye it for you (excluding club/exclusive colorways, of course).
