About

Story Yarns. A picture is worth a thousand stitches.

I am a librarian by day, surrounded by books and listening to the stories of my community. By night, I am a serious crafter, telling my own stories through the hobbies of my choice: knitting, beading, and photography. Story Yarns is the convergence of all three of those interests.

A love of knitting has brought forth hand dyed yarns and fibers with a sense of curiosity and color.

Beading turns into stitch markers for the serious, the fun, and the quirky knitter.

Photography creates inspiration for it all.

I hope you enjoy my little shop as much as I enjoy sharing my craft story with you. As you shop and enjoy the items you purchase, I hope you share your stories and pictures with me. Be sure to read over my shop policies. Thank you for visiting Story Yarns.

Welcome to Story Yarns! Do you ever have that moment in your knitting or spinning life where you wonder just how you'll be able to knit or spin all the things in your stash? That's the moment that has been fast approaching me as I realized the obsession I have with hand dyeing fiber and spinning it into yarn was overtaking my small home. So, this Etsy shop has been created to combat the overstock I have. I'm still putting up all the window dressing around here, so please contact me if there is some information you can't find.

All fiber and yarn found in this shop has been hand dyed by me. I like to see where the colors take me when I dye fiber. It's a bit of a messy whirlwind as I dye stuff, so colorways aren't always repeatable. I can try to get you a close cousin to something though. ;)

Please note that due to differences in computer monitors that colors may appear differently on your screen than in real life.

At this time, I'm not accepting custom orders as I get the shop up and running.

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

Hand dyed yarn and fiber should be washed in cold water and may bleed somewhat during the first few washings. All dyed yarn and fiber has been dyed using professional grade acid dyes.

Stitch markers are made of base metal or stainless steel components as listed in the items description. It's always best to keep base or semi-precious metals in a closed container to avoid any oxidation process that might make the metal turn colors. Stainless steel findings should not be affected by oxidation.

Color accuracy in Pictures

While Story Yarns makes every effort possible for accurate color in our pictures, please note that it is not possible to compensate for every monitor screen or device display a buyer may use.

Colors may vary from the on screen visual to the actual product received. Please read the shop's full policies and FAQs. I'm happy to answer questions via message.

Is Story Yarns pet friendly?

Yes, it is! My home is a dog friendly. While I can't get these two lazy dogs to help around the house, they are in the same room as me when I dye the yarn and take pictures. They are not allowed to knit with yarn or package supplies. Due to the cozy size of my home, designating a "yarn only" area isn't feasible. Please note if you have allergies.
