Crystal is amazing! My yarn was shipped very quick, but delayed and delivered quite late by the post office. Crystal was so kind and understanding even though it was not her fault at all. I'm glad it all worked out in the end! Now that my yarn has been on an adventure, I can't wait to knit with it!

About

Dyer of Yarn, Lover of Speckles

My name is Crystal and I've always loved making things with my hands. Most recently, I've fallen in love with knitting. Sadly, though, after two years of struggling, I had to admit that knitting doesn't make my hands very happy. I have to be very selective about my projects and I knit very slowly, finishing only a project or two a year.

I spent a while feeling really sad about this. I loved working with yarn and couldn't stand the thought of never getting to use all the beautiful skeins of yarn in my stash.

A little while later, a thought came to me: what if I could dye yarn? I could still create, I could still play with pretty yarn. And maybe I could create yarn for other knitters/crocheters to enjoy.

It turns out that I love dyeing yarn! It makes me so happy, even though I can't knit with every skein I dye. I love dye because it is an imprecise medium and the differences that come as a result are what makes each skein special. Each skein is a little piece of art, a little piece of my heart.

Each skein is hand dyed by me in very small batches. I take great care to wash out excess dye and to make sure dyes are set properly. Skeins are prepped and packaged by me in my cat-friendly home.

Lastly, I just want to thank everyone who has helped me on this path and who has encouraged me to sell my yarn. I hope you love my yarn as much as I do and that you know how truly thankful I am for each skein purchased. You are why I can keep dyeing yarn, keep using my hands to make things I love. Thank you!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I love custom orders. I only dye yarn on the weekends so if you want to order a custom skein, please factor that into your request. Each skein is hand dyed by me and is not guaranteed to be an exact match for a previously dyed skein, nor are two skeins dyed at the same time guaranteed to match exactly.

I can also dye custom colorways based on colors you love. Message me and we can talk about options.

Care instructions

All yarn in my shop contains superwash wool. This means that you may machine wash cold and machine dry if you prefer without worrying about felting/shrinking. It will, however, wear our your knitted items faster.

I recommend all knitted items be washed by hand in cool water using Soak or other mild soap. Lay flat to dry.

Certain colors will bleed more in the wash: reds, pinks and purples. I do my very best to wash all skeins until they run clear but some colors will continue to run for many washes. Washing in cold water will reduce the chance of colors running. If machine washing, always wash on cold with like colors.

Shipping

I do my very best to package up your order the same day and ship the next morning. If I expect there will be a delay, I'll let you know asap.
