The Nooch Story

Nooch Fiber started with Mariana looking for an apartment-friendly way to explore color:

She had gotten her undergrad degree in painting and moved to New York City for non-art related grad school and quickly found that tiny apartments do no lend themselves to smelly oil paints and huge canvasses.

She had been an avid knitter for years, but had never gotten the idea to dye yarn before moving to NYC, since she had been pouring her creative energies into painting and drawing.

Mariana started off with food colors and after some successful attempts, moved on to professional dyes and yarn bases. She likes to apply her knowledge of color theory and her artistic sensibility to every yarn she creates.

For the first two years of Nooch Fiber, all of the dyeing for Nooch Fiber happened in the living room of Mariana and Nick's small one-bedroom apartment on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. The whole place was only about 400 square feet!

In early 2014, Mariana and Nick moved to Plainsboro, New Jersey for Nick to attend graduate school. Mariana continues to dye beautiful skeins in their (slightly larger) apartment kitchen.

We will ship your domestic order within 3 business days after we receive your payment, but we always try to be quicker.

We will ship your international order within 7 business days, since these orders require actually going to the post office. :)

All packages ship via USPS, unless otherwise noted. Packages shipped via USPS are insured for $50 - this insurance applies to any damage to the package's contents in the shipping process. The insurance does NOT apply to packages that are lost or stolen after being scanned as "delivered" by a postal worker.

Once we drop the package off at the post office, we cannot control how long it takes to deliver it. We are not responsible for any packages that are lost or stolen after being scanned as "delivered" by a postal worker. If you are concerned that someone may steal your package from your doorstep, please let us know in your purchase comments. In these cases, we will write a note on the package instructing the postal worker not to leave the package in front of your door. Alternatively, we will be happy to add signature confirmation to your package for a small fee (US$2.30 per package).
