Announcement   I am a little sad to announce that Storied Yarns will be closing soon. The final shop update will take place on Friday, February 28 and after that the shop will only remain open for a few more weeks (or until the inventory sells out, whichever comes first). Thank you so much for your support of my little corner of the fiber world over the years! I will miss this, but it's time for me to move on.

Hi there! Welcome to Storied Yarns, the home of fiber arts with character! Browse my selection of colorful characters to find out what happens when an English Geek plays with yarn and fiber!

For Custom Orders: I am temporarily putting a hold on customs through the end of 2013. I need to focus on my family during this busy holiday season and I can't do that if I'm pressured to fill custom orders. I will post here and in the Storied Yarns Ravelry group when customs become available again. I'll continue to stock the shop as often as I can, so check back! Thanks, everyone!

Hi, I'm Jess. I believe that when you make something with your hands, you tell a story through that item. Your creation takes on a life and a character all its own. Here in my shop you will find yarn and fiber to help you give even more meaning to that story. When you choose a yarn that is meaningful to you because it reminds you of your favorite characters, knitting something out of that yarn is like bringing those characters to life. I feel absolutely blessed to spend all day obsessing over books, movies and TV shows and turning my favorite characters into color combinations on yarn and fiber. I hope you enjoy using them as much as I enjoy making them!

Each of my original colorways is inspired by a character I have met. Don't see your favorite character here? Feel free to convo me with character suggestions. Please read my shop policies for further information. I can replicate all of my regular colorways on any yarn, roving or batt form and I am always happy to come up with new colorways for my customers! Just pick a book, movie, TV show or other inspiration and I will happily get to work.

I'm excited to share this creative journey with you!

I am happy to offer FREE ball-winding service for any of my yarns that you purchase. Please just send me a message when you buy the yarn and I will wind it into a center-pull ball/cake for you so it's ready to stitch as soon as it arrives! :)

I think I'll love this fiber for sock yarn. My feet are always cold in the winter but I have knit socks for about 50 years. Thanks, Jess. I have a challenge ahead!

About

Fiber Arts for Fanatics

I believe that when you make something with your hands, you tell a story through that item. Your creation takes on a life and a character all its own. This is the inspiration for what I do - I create yarns inspired by characters to add depth to your knitting, crocheting, weaving and felting projects. I believe that when you make something that is inspired by a favorite character, you can infuse your project with little aspects of that character's personality. Choosing yarns and fibers inspired by your treasured stories is a way to remember that story and let it live on indefinitely. I like to think of my work as one big tribute to the creators of the stories that have helped me to escape, cope, fantasize and dream for the last 30-plus years of my life. I hope you'll enjoy my fiber arts twist on those stories.

If you like geeking out over yarn, books, movies or TV shows like I do, come and join me and we can hang out! You can find me on Ravelry as Jessecreations or as Storied Yarns on Twitter. I look forward to sharing our creations together!

    Hi, I'm Jess! I'm the indie dyer/spinner/Head Geek behind Storied Yarns. I used to be an English major, then I was an English teacher, and now I make yarn and wool inspired by all those stories I have loved for so many years.

Hi there! I'm so glad you came by to visit me in my little corner of the yarnisphere!

My colorways are all inspired by books, movies and television; this business is the perfect way for me to mesh my obsession with media with my yarn obsession! I choose the colors based on the way these characters inspire me, giving me an endless supply of ideas! I hope you love the colorways I've created already, and I would LOVE to work with you to create a new colorway inspired by YOU and your favorite characters!

The Details:
It's really important to me that I create a high-quality product that my customers will LOVE. After all, I'm an artist and I take that very seriously even though it's also a ton of FUN! Here are some things you might need to know about the way I work:
- I dye all of my yarns and spinning fibers in my smoke-free, dog-friendly home.
- I use only professional acid dyes in my colorways. I do this because they get professional results and they are colorfast. Though some of my materials are machine washable and dryer safe, I always recommend hand washing to preserve the life of handmade items.
- I am happy to take custom orders for any colorway, whether it's one I've created in the past or one you want me to create just for you. I can dye yarn and fiber in any weight or amount, so just feel free to send me a message and I'll get started on your order! Please be aware that there is a wait time for custom orders; that time varies but it can range anywhere from one to four weeks, depending on the order load at the time you place your order. Just know that I will work as hard as I can to make sure that you receive your order as quickly as possible, but sometimes I have to order supplies and wait for them to arrive in order to fill an order and other times I may just have a lot of orders before yours. I am a one-woman operation so I can only work so hard.
- Most of the time, I dye one skein of yarn or braid of fiber at a time. I can dye multiple items together to make a bigger batch if you need a larger quantity of something, so just send me a message about a custom order and I will get to work!
- If you see something you like in my shop or my sold listings, but you'd like to tweak it, send me a message! For instance, if you love the color of a roving but you want it as a batt or yarn, I can do that for you. I'm happy to do it, in fact!
- I offer custom spinning service if you love handspun yarns but you don't spin yourself. Look at my custom order sections for the listing for that.
- I am happy to wind any skein into a center-pull ball, free of charge. Please just include the request in your messages to the seller.


Whew, that's a lot of business! Thank you SO much for visiting my shop. I hope you'll come back often and share this creative adventure with me!!
