Welcome to my Etsy shop! Here is a place with hand-knit treasures of wool, angora, and other fibers. Many have been hand-cleaned, hand-carded, and hand-spun, too! All are home made for the glory of God and the edification of others by a home school graduate.

I am quite open to custom orders. If you have fiber you want spun, a garment you would like knit or crocheted, or something specially made, I would love to work on it for you!

About

I sell homespun yarns and knitted garments for the glory of God and the enjoyment of others.

Ever since I can remember, I have loved to watch spinners on their spinning wheels and weavers on their looms, and my family and I have had many opportunities to watch spinners and weavers during all our reenactments! Stories in the Bible of spinners, weavers, knitters, and sewers have also intrigued me over the years, and sometime between the ages of 10 and 13, I had all but decided I wanted to spin and knit for my future "job".

Rabbits have been my favorite animal since I was an early teenager, and I soon learned about angora rabbits, whose super soft, wooly hair needed to be periodically trimmed down like a sheep's, and then could be spun. I purchased my first two angora rabbits in 2009, and have loved them ever since! I currantly own four rabbits, and their beautiful wool has served me well.

My grandmother taught me how to crotchet when I was about 8, and though I didn't practice much at first, I later returned to the art, and really enjoyed it! I learned how to knit when I was 16, and I have now mastered many of the stitches and techniques of knitting (and also how to fix mistakes without ripping everything out and starting over!). I took a class on spinning when I was 16, and after some tutoring from a friend, I soon picked up on the rhythm of pedaling the wheel while controlling the wool with my fingers.

By the time I graduated highschool in 2009, I was ready to start my spinning and knitting business. My first customer told me about Etsy, and I opened my shop in February of 2010. Since then, I have built my own additional website, and have enjoyed selling on Etsy, and at local craft shows. I have given lessons and demonstrations of spinning and knitting to many, and I am so grateful for the abundant ways that God has provided for me!

Privacy
Valid from 25th May 2018 - Review on 25th May 2019
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.
This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy.

1. PERSONAL INFORMATION I COLLECT
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly.

2. WHY I NEED YOUR INFORMATION AND HOW I USE IT
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

• as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;

• when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;

• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and

as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

3. INFORMATION SHARING AND DISCLOSURE
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

• Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.

• Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.

• Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.

• Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

4. DATA RETENTION
I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 5 years.

5. TRANSFERS OF PERSONAL INFORMATION OUTSIDE THE EU
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

6. YOUR RIGHTS
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

• Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.

• Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.

• Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.

• Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

7. HOW TO CONTACT ME
For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Miriam Reynolds, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at: spunbun [!at] reynoldsplanet.org.
