Welcome to Mainely Wool Yarn Co.! My yarns are dyed in small batches using a kettle dyeing method, which creates semisolid and subtly vareigated yarns. Though up to 10 skeins can be dyed at the same time, there can be variances between skeins even within the same dyelot, due to the nature of kettle-dyeing. I always recommend alternating skeins when making a project.

Returns & exchanges

See item details for return and exchange eligibility.


Payment is expected at the time of purchase. If you are unable to pay immediately, please contact me before you make the purchase through Etsy, and I can hold the item for you for up to five days. If payment is not received within 24 hours of purchase, the sale will be cancelled.


Shipping to U.S. addresses is done via First Class, for packages weighing up to 13 ounces. If you prefer Priority shipping, please let me know and I will adjust your shipping charges accordingly.

International parcels are sent via First Class International, to keep your shipping charges down. I can send the yarn via Priority Mail International, but the rates are very high, and I will have to charge you the difference.

Additional policies and FAQs

I work very hard on the photographs of my yarn to ensure accuracy when listing an item. The color is true on my monitor, but I cannot guarantee that you will see the same thing that I do. I prefer not to take returns when the color is not quite what is expected, unless the yarn was grossly misrepresented.

If ever you need your skein of yarn wound into a center-pull ball before shipping, let me know. I'd be happy to do so, simply mention it in the "notes to seller" area during checkout. I can also divide the skein into two equal balls, if you desire.

I am happy to take custom orders for specific colors and yarn bases. Send me a message with the details. Please allow 3-4 weeks for custom orders.

All of my yarns and spinning fibers are dyed one at a time, though I do take notes, and can come very close to replicating a previous color. If you have a color you would like to see in the shop, please convo me, and I'll be do my best to replicate it.

My yarns and fibers are dyed in a smoke-free, but dog-friendly home. I try my best to be sure that no dog hair is in the items I sell, but a stray may appear from time to time.

I try very hard to accurately photograph my yarns. It takes me a great deal of time to take the photos, and edit them so that the colors are true. What I see on my monitor is correct, but please bear in mind that it may different from monitor to monitor. If ever you feel that the color was grossly misrepresented, please let me know immediately, and I will either refund your money, or dye up a new skein.
