The Story of Spyn

Spyn Fiber Arts began in 2010, after layoffs at my company left me unemployed. Bored and frustrated with my job search, I decided that I needed a new hobby.

I bought my very first spindle that year at a small Renaissance festival in Twig, MN. The shopkeeper, a fiber artist, brushed a fluffy handful of angora from her pet rabbit and generously gave it to me as a gift. I spun and drafted that slippery, silky fiber over and over! I found such joy in spinning — it kept my hands busy, it kept my mind focused on a specific and simple task, and the colorful, soft fibers soothed my spirit.

What began as an escape blossomed into a fullfilling hobby, and Spyn Fiber Arts was born!

Shop policies

Last updated on May 9, 2022
Thanks so much for stopping by my store!

I try to make my policies as clear as possible -- basically, once you purchase something on Etsy, pay for it right away with PayPal and I'll send it to you right away by USPS. Simple. Anything more complicated than that and you should probably convo me.

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Visa Mastercard Discover Apple Pay Klarna Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I want you to love what you buy from me, and I do everything I can to make your purchase a positive experience. However, you will have 7 days after receiving your item to return it to me for a refund of up to the full price of the item. You are responsible for any return shipping costs, and you are encouraged to get a tracking number or some kind of shipping insurance to make sure that the item does not get lost. I will only accept returned items that are in the EXACT same condition they were when I shipped them.
I accept PayPal, and will wait up to 3 days from your date of purchase to receive payment. I will ship the item to the address provided by PayPal unless you let me know otherwise. You must provide me with an alternate address IMMEDIATELY upon payment -- it's important that I have your correct shipping address when I go to the post office.
I will ship your item as quickly as possible after I receive your payment (within 2-3 days). Please note that if you pay with e-check through PayPal, I must wait for the check to clear before I send your item (this usually takes 2-3 business days). I ship all items USPS first class, but convo me if you'd like to discuss an alternative shipping option.

I love international customers! (I love to think about where my items are traveling.) Convo me to get an international shipping quote.

If you have any questions or concerns about shipping, please let me know BEFORE you purchase the item. I can't do much about shipping once the item is on its way to you. :-)
