Hello and welcome to SewKnitNBeads2, where I invite you to indulge in the soft pleasures of handspun yarn, wonderfully transformed from beautiful, high-quality, hand dyed rovings on my Lendrum DT spinning wheel.

I’m currently featuring a warm selection of both seasonal and cross-over colors, perfectly suited to a variety of knitting projects. Check out my latest listings of superwash and extra fine merino yarn, available in wide range of stylish blends!

All my products come from a smoke free home.

Thanks for stopping by….feel free to convo me if you have any questions/request or to be added to the mailing list for sale announcement!

Below is a brief outline of my shop policies. If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a message through the Etsy "conversation" system and I will be happy to assist you.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
Return policy:
Please be sure before you make a purchase. Items can be returned within 5 days of your receipt of the item. I will only accept returns at my discretion. Full refund will be given in most cases, however, the item MUST be in the same condition as it was when I sent it, and you must pay to have it shipped back to me and this will NOT be refunded. The shipping cost to ship the item to you will NOT be refunded.
I accept PayPal, credit card, check or money orders.

Credit card payments are processed through PayPal’s secure servers. You do not, however, require a PayPal account in order to pay with a credit card. Just follow the instructions at checkout or wait for our invoice to pay by credit card.

Revised: June 15, 2008
If paying by check/money order, please convo me within 7 days to let me know that the check/money order has been sent. Otherwise, transaction will be null & void and the item re-listed. Check/money order must clear before purchase is shipped.

If you are paying through paypal, I would really appreciate it if you pay on the same day as your purchase. However, I understand that this is not always possible. Therefore, you have up to three days to make your payment through paypal; after that the transaction will be considered null and void and the item re-listed.

Please make sure that your adrdress on Etsy and Paypal are the same. If not, please convo me about it.

Additional policies and FAQs

Custom Order/Request:
I welcome your custom order!! Please convo me via the "Contact SewKnitNBeads2" link.

My items are priced based on the cost of materials, so this can vary greatly. I make use of other fiber artist's hand dyed fibers to keep the "handmade" aspect from start to finish. Thus, prices vary and may not always seem to make sense, but I try very hard to keep them reasonable!

The usual disclaimer regarding colors possibly varying on one's monitor applies.

Thank you for visiting WhirlExpo!
