I am busy with my 3 year old son and don't have the time, energy, or room to do any dyeing at the moment. I believe these things will work themselves out in the future, but I cannot give an estimate as to when that time will be.
Thank you to all who made purchases from my store! I do hope I can continue to do business with you all again in the future. Best wishes!

I have nearly 15 years experience in customer service. It's very important to me to provide good service and great products to my customers. I encourage personal interaction in the event that there are any issues. My doors are always open!

I do accept requests for custom orders. Please allow at least a week for me to complete any custom ordered items.

All items are created in a smoke-free environment.

Photographs shown are for the yarn available for purchase in that listing. I do not reuse any photos, even if the yarn is of a similar colorway, since all dyeing sessions can produce slight differences in colors and patterns even if they are within the same "dye lot". True colors are not easily captured with cameras and computer monitors all vary, so the true color of your yarn verses what you see on the screen may be slightly different. I do everything I can to show the colors as honestly and close to their real hues as possible.

Accepted payment methods

  • Money Order
Payment
I prefer Paypal as a payment method, but I also accept money orders drawn on US dollars. Sorry, but I cannot accept personal checks.

Paypal payments must be received within 7 days of purchase. Money orders may be received within 10 business days. If payment has not been received within these time frames and no prior arrangements have been made with me, I reserve the right to relist the items for sale.
Shipping
I ship packages within 3 business days of receiving or confirming payment. I do reuse packaging whenever possible, but the items will always be wrapped in plastic to protect them from moisture or odors during the shipping process.

Packages are shipped via the US postal service. Primary methods are either First Class or Priority. I try to send at the fastest method available without charging you a lot for shipping fees.

I do everything I can to protect your purchase, but as soon as it leaves my hands at the postal service counter, I am no longer in control. I am not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged items in the mail. I am happy to recalculate shipping fees to include insurance, delivery confirmation, or any other elective postal services.

Do you live in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota? Don't want to pay for shipping and don't mind driving to a destination to pick up your purchase in person? I can arrange for personal pick up in a secure, safe location and spare you the extra shipping fees and waiting times. Contact me prior to paying for your purchase for details!

IMPORTANT - INTERNATIONAL BUYERS!
I do ship internationally, and the price shown on my listings should work for most locations, however, I highly encourage international buyers to contact me BEFORE paying so I can get an accurate shipping total for you.
Refunds and Exchanges
Hand dyed yarns are never "perfect" and always have some sort of "flaws" in them. I do not insure against the unique color properties of hand dyed yarn. I do not issue cash refunds, but if you find there is a major defect in your yarn, I will gladly arrange a replacement for you. I must receive the defective yarn back from you before an exchange will be issued to you. If the colorway of your yarn is not currently listed for sale, then I will custom dye another skein for you immediately upon receiving the returned yarn.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders are happily welcomed. But if you're looking for a color I have not dyed before, please be specific about the shade you're thinking about. Include an image with the colors you want for best results. I may not be able to get the colors exactly as you've imagined them to be, but I will try my very best!

All my yarns are natural fiber (sheep's wool)or a blend of natural fiber with synthetics (such as nylon). They are lovingly dyed with professional quality dyes in my home. Though many of the yarns I sell are "superwash", I still recommend hand washing them and laying flat to dry rather than using a washing machine and dryer. Some color loss during the washing process is normal, especially with reds.

As always, you are welcome to contact me with any questions or comments. My doors are always open and I would love to hear from you. Thank you for stopping by my shop!
