Announcement   Thank you for coming by to have a look at my hand dyed yarn and handmade project bags. I hope you will see something you like. If you are outside of Australia and would like to purchase something from my shop please contact me and we can work out the shipping.

I am very happy to do custom orders. Most of the colourways in the sold section I am able to dye up again. I can also dye up new colourways based on what you would like.

This colour is lovely thank you, my mother is turning 90 years old soon and she loves this colour so a pair of socks will be lovely for her. The wool is so soft. Thank you.

About

Beautiful yarns hand dyed in Tasmania.

I have been dyeing yarn for myself and friends for over seven years and I finally decided to open this online shop in 2015 to sell my hand dyed yarn. I love dyeing yarn and fibre and I do not want to stop because I am running out of space!

I occasionally sell my handmade project bags. Each one of them is truly one of a kind and made with much love and attention.

I fill my days with parenting, a professional science career, bookkeeping, podcasting, knitting, spinning, crafting, swimming and enjoying the outdoors. Playing with colours and dyeing yarn is the perfect mix of science, creativity, mess and fun for me. I love wool and all the things you can create with this beautiful material.

With a background in Environmental Science I am conscious about the resources/materials I use and the potential impacts on the environment. I aim to make my dyeing process as efficient as possible to reduce any waste. I also source my bases and materials as locally as possible.

Thank you for coming by to have a look at my work.

    I am a Swede living in Tasmania, Australia, with my husband and two little girls. I love dyeing yarn. It is fun and it involves a little bit of science and a lot of creativity. A perfect mix for me.

I aim to ship orders within 2 business days of your purchase.
I ship to the address you have listed in your Etsy and Paypal / Direct Checkout accounts; if you would like things sent to a different address, please let me know upon purchase. Your purchase is being shipped from Australia, and all packages are sent airmail. Packages sent overseas can take 2 or more weeks to arrive at their destination.

Shipping yarn: Flat rate shipping of $8.50 AUD for all Australian orders. I ship world wide, please contact me for a shipping cost quote.

Shipping project bags: Bags are sent flat in envelopes where possible. Shipping is $3 AUD for Australian orders.

Combined yarn/bag shipping: Etsy will calculate the combined postage by charging only for the yarn postage and include the bag shipping for free. Please let me know if you find mistakes with the calculated postage.

Customers are responsible for any import taxes or charges that apply in their country. Customs documentation will accurately list parcel contents and value.

All parcels are sent via Australia Post without tracking or insurance. Please get in touch if you would like to have your parcel tracked and/or insured.
Refunds and Exchanges
There are no change of mind refunds. Please examine photographs and descriptions carefully. If the item is not what you expected when it arrives please let me know in a message and we can probably work something out. If I have accidentally posted the wrong item, I will correct the mistake at my own cost. Please contact me before returning items.
Additional policies and FAQs
This is hand dyed yarn and so pooling and flashing may occur. It is always recommended to alternate skeins for garments when using hand dyed yarns.
Colours may appear differently on your screen. Please read the colour description carefully. I do repeat some colourways but it is in the nature of hand dyeing in small batches that even with the same methods and dye amounts, skeins can vary quite a bit from batch to batch and even within a batch.

Any knots or splices that I have detected will be mentioned in the listing. I endeavour to not offer items for sale with knots or splices, but the absence of these cannot be guaranteed.

All yarn is dyed with professional grade acid dyes. I recommend that hand dyed yarns are hand washed in cold to luke warm water with an appropriate wool wash. In my years of dyeing yarn for myself I have not had any problems with dye run-off, but to be safe I recommend that you wash your item separately the first couple of times. Dry flat in shade.

I do not re-skein. If I do it will be noted in the description.

I work in a smoke-free and pet free environment.
