Hello!!! 😊
I am a lover of all natural fibres.
Fondling a raw fleece and seeing it's potential is what I thrive on. Spinning, hand-dyeing, knitting, crochet and felting is what I do. All the (spare) time!
The rest of the time I'm a mum and I'm also working almost full time at the local Steiner School...
I can't sit with my hands still for too long, you'll always find me with some projects in my bag wherever I go. And usually with some wispy fibre on my clothes!
Creating beautiful yarn and unique garments is my way of returning to our roots, to feel grounded, useful.
I truly would like to share my passion with you, for you to create, craft or wear something beautiful and enriching for you and those around you...
Thank you for shopping with Soft Senses Yarn. 💓

About

The essence of turning a raw fleece into delightful yarn

I learnt to knit from my grandmother when I was a little girl. When I was eight I learned crochet at school, and I have done both ever since.
My favourite creations are garments for myself and my loved ones. They are usually free-form and a little quirky...
It was simply natural progression that I would learn to create from scratch the wool that I adored so much!
I love the transformation from fleece to yarn. All of the steps from skirting to carding, from spinning to dyeing. Oh, playing with colours is so much fun!!!
It always makes me sing.
I have spun so many skeins that now it is time to share them with you, so you too can make your own, unique handmade project!
Let's share the beauty of wool and natural fibres and thoroughly enjoy the process 💙

    Natural fibers are my passion. I love the feel of soft alpaca hair, the smell of a wool fleece, the strength of a strand of silk, the exquisite shine of mohair. Carding, blending, dyeing and spinning the fibers gives me great joy. I hope to share it.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I gladly accept and welcome custom orders for both hand-dyed spinning/felting supplies and handspun/hand-dyed yarns. Contact me for fibre availability or with your enquiries ☺
I also offer a spinning service if you have your own fleece or hair. 🐑🐐🐕🐫🐇

Care instructions

Treat wool and alpaca with care. Wash in warm water with a mild wool detergent and rinse in same temperature water without agitating, as temperature changes and friction can cause felting and shrinking. Gently pat dry and hang projects and garments in the shade as colours can fade.
Some colour may be present in the wash water or during felting.

Shipping

Shipping can be combined for multiple orders, however Etsy does not do that automatically and postage charges could be higher than what they will actually be.
I endeavour to combine orders into the same package as much as possible and if shipping charges are too high I will gladly refund the difference or add some extra wool (your preference).
Sometimes combined orders will have to be sent in a larger parcel due to the volume of wool (the weight could be under 450 grams but 3 large skeins don't fit in a satchel...).
If you're not sure about postage for multiple items contact me before purchase and I will find out for you.
Thank you for shopping with Soft Senses Yarn -handspun wool! ☺

Colour variations

All my skeins and rovings are hand-dyed and therefore each batch can be a little different. Colour variations can also be present on a single roving, as this is the nature of the craft and the charm of hand-dyed fibres. Although I endeavour to reproduce all colours each time, it is possible that differences may occur.
For anyone wishing to have uniform colours and no variations it might be more suitable to purchase commercially-dyed yarn or rovings.
Thank you for supporting my hand-dyed wool! 😊
