I am just in love with this yarn! I looked at about 30 different hand-dyed option and decided on this one because it was so beautiful and vibrant in its many colors. So pleased that it's even more gorgeous on arrival and so soft. I will definitely order from here again!!

About

With reckless abandon comes the most wonderful creations!! :-)

Okay, so this is how it got started. A co-worker friend of mine has a sister who knits up a storm, she makes everything and anything and everyone loves it. Well, she was taking orders for keyhole scarves, and I decided that I just had to have one, but I didn't want the regular ol' run of the mill store-bought yarn. Nope. I decided I wanted some cool looking yarn, so off I went to the 'net to see what I could find.

And that was the beginning of the end, I was instantly struck by the absolutely amazing handspun yarn that I discovered here on Etsy! I didn't even know handspun yarn existed, believe it or not (yes, I lead a sheltered life). So anyway, I found myself buying up skeins, one right after the other, and I thought, "Hmm, I seem to be pretty hooked on this stuff, I wonder if maybe I ought to see if I can do this myself."

So, I ordered a drop spindle kit from a seller on Etsy, and wow, that was slick!! Well, if I like the drop spindle, maybe I ought to give a wheel a spin. Fortunately, a dear friend of mine loaned me her wheel that she had gotten two decades ago and wasn't using any more. We dusted it off, got a new drive band, oiled it up, and away I went. Ooooh!! Was that ever fun, spinning on an actual spinning wheel!! :-)

"Hmm, but what about those fancy art yarns, how can I make those? This wheel isn't really built to accommodate bulky yarns, what to do?"

Enter my wonderful, perfect mother - we promptly went to a local yarn shop and there it was - the Ashford Country Spinner, my dream machine!! And no sooner than my mother could say "Happy Birthday To You!" - I was off and running with my art yarn wheel, and I have never looked back! :-) Love it, love it, love it! I can create the lumpiest, bumpiest, most random skeins I can ever imagine, this is sooo up my alley. :-) What can I say, life is good!! :-)

Hello and welcome! Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the world. :-) I hope you enjoy browsing through these fibery treasures, and just maybe you'll find something you can't live without! ;-)

If you find something you want Reserved, just whistle! I'm ALWAYS happy to tuck it aside for you for up to one week! :-) One thing: I'll absolutely put a skein (or skeins!) on Reserve for you just as soon as I read the convo. The only thing that'll trump a "Reserve" is if someone has already made the purchase before I have had a chance to reserve it for you. Otherwise, whatever you want Reserved is ALL YOURS! :-)

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort

Payment
PayPal only. Payment must be made within 3 days. If you are unable to make the payment in 3 days, please send me a convo. Otherwise, the order will be canceled and I will relist the item.
Shipping
Shipping via USPS. I will ship within 2 business days of completed purchase.

For my International Customers: I typically go with expedited shipping to get tracking / confirmation / insurance (I like that security), but it is more expensive. If you would like a less expensive method and are willing to live without that security, let me know and I'll give you a quote. :-) (Please just keep in mind, if the package is lost, there won't be anything I can do.)
Refunds and Exchanges
All sales final.
Additional policies and FAQs
*** Sorry, NO Custom Orders - work & family commitments simply do not allow. Thank you for understanding. ***

Reserves are granted for up to one week. If payment has not been made in that timeframe, the Reserve will be removed and the item will go back up for sale on a first-come/first-served basis.
