Announcement   Wishing you a blessed February! Thank you so much for choosing Handmade in the USA. <3

Need multiple items for your boutique or photography business? Convo me with your needs for special pricing.

The vast majority of my items are natural fiber, not acrylic, and I handspin most of the wool in my shop on my spinning wheel, so they are one-of-a-kind and handmade from the start. Though I don't spin the cotton, I search for only the softest and in colors that are inspirational and perfect for my projects. The materials I use are luxurious, heirloom-quality, very soft, colorful, whimsical, and renewable.

I have created all of my own patterns, so you can be sure they are unique, and with five little ones of my own from which my patterns have been tried and true, you can always trust them for excellent fit.

It is my hope that you love each item you receive from me, and that you are filled with joy to put your paws in the beautiful spring air.

This shop is essentially non-profit. After fees and materials, all earnings help provide tangible needs to those in need here locally.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have always had a joy-filled affection for yarn. . . especially bright colors in ultra-soft, interesting textures, worked in a way so that it becomes both aesthetically and functionally delightful.

I strive to create soft, fun, one-of-a-kind crocheted and knit items for wearing, serving, snuggling, photographing, singing, laughing, putting your paws in the air. . .and so on. Ya know, the good stuff.

Thanks so much for your interest in my items. I have created all of my own patterns and hand construct every item in my shop in a smoke-free studio. I welcome requests for custom items, & please feel free to ask any questions at all.

I am happy to ship internationally, but I am only able to ship internationally on Saturdays at this time...any orders shipping out of the US will ship on the Saturday following your order date. Thanks so much! :-)

I bought this for our mini and she/we love it! She prefers this cocoon over a swaddle and the little hat is an adorable bonus! The quality is excellent and because Baby loves it so much it'll be one of the very few "baby things" we hold on to.

Oh my goodness, this yarn is so soft!! The Bluefaced Leicester wool yarn used is luscious and the handspun quality of the skein is exceptional! The beautiful array of colors in it are warm, cozy, and mesmerizing...I can see why it's called "Winter Sunset", I couldn't have come up with a more perfect name myself. Nicole is a joy to do business with! She offers a prompt reply, is very helpful, provides top notch customer service, and shipping that is so fast it's truly incredible! I know that my mother-in-law is going to be delighted when she sees this yarn in her birthday gift. My husband already loves it so much; I bet he's going to talk her into using it to crochet a scarf for himself...it's a very special yarn! I highly recommend this Etsy shop!! A+++

About

Sheep. Spinning wheel. Answered prayers.

I always thought I had enough friends to crochet and knit for. . . and then I had children. Once all of my friends and family had scarves and my children had hats to match every outfit, I started wondering what I was going to do with my yarn addiction. . . then 8 and a half years ago. . .my prayers (and my very scarved family's, haha) were answered. I found Etsy!! My kids still love wearing their hats, and they ask me for custom creations often, but now the sky is the limit on design. I love custom orders, and those have had an incredible benefit on my skills and my soul, I have thoroughly loved every one. I seek and crave being resourceful and eco-wise, so as my shop has grown, I have moved to natural fiber, some homespun yarn (your support bought me a spinning wheel, I am in yarntopia!), and it is my hope and dream in the next year to have our own flock of sheep. I am so thankful to all of the amazing and beautiful people I have gotten to know and create for here on Etsy. <3

    I love kids and yarn. My children have inspired me to create fun colors and patterns for my items, I hope you love them as much as they do. :)

Thanks for looking at my shop! I love to craft, and have been making handmade knit garnments since I was 10. I have learned to make just about anything out of fabric or yarn (I have a textile fetish), so please feel free to stop by often, as you will probably see various different crafted items depending on whatever I'm enjoying doing at this point in time.

Payment
I prefer paypal. If that is an issue, please simply ask a question, and I'm sure we can work it out. :-)
Shipping
I will ship however you want, the listed shipping for most items is for first class, as that is least expensive and quite fast. Please convo me if you want something else prior to purchasing, and I can reserve it for you with updated shipping to your preferance, thanks! For multiple purchases, I combine shipping, and do not charge extra shipping for more items purchased (unless it's a custom order and that is part of the arrangement), but I will upgrade to priority with no cost to you if it weighs enough. . . I also like to do a little "ecoetsy" with the packaging. . . reusing clean plastic and occasionally mailers.
Refunds and Exchanges
I do not generally accept returns, but please convo me if you have any issue, and we can openly discuss anything, with emphasis on your satisfaction. :-)
