Welcome to my shop! All of my roving and yarn is hand-dyed with acid dyes, unless otherwise noted. My batts are created with a mix of exotic and luxury fibers, and are rich in texture and colour. I have cats (and birds, and fish, and chinchillas...) but the animals do not come near my fiber processing area. My house is smoke free.

I am able to recreate almost all of my colourways, with the caveat that no dyer can ever produce exactly the same product twice, no matter how carefully she tries. If you see something you want, please contact me. I frequently work with wool, silk, alpaca, mohair, and exotics such as cashmere, suri alpaca, camel down, and angora.

If you don't spin, but see something you can't resist, I'm happy to spin it up for you into the type of yarn you'd most enjoy using. Current rate is $6/ounce. If you have yardage requirements for a particular project, let me know! Contact me with any questions, or to find out about turn around time.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
Return Policy: All colours may vary from monitor to monitor. Customers may return yarn within 14 days of receipt and will receive a full refund as long as the yarn is in its original, clean, undamaged state and is still skeined. Customer pays shipping on returned item. Please contact me if you wish to make a return.
I accept PayPal and money orders. All orders are shipped on the next business day after payment is received, barring unforseen circumstances. If payment has not been made within 72 hours of purchase, I will contact you through Etsy. If no answer has been received within 24 hours of this contact, your order will be canceled and the items placed back in my inventory.
Domestic orders of $40 or more will receive free shipping! International buyers will be refunded $5 towards the cost of their shipping. Please wait for your updated invoice before paying.
Additional policies and FAQs
One of the best things about buying from artisans directly is the personal, human touch. If you want to talk about a custom order, or having something placed on hold for you, let me know! The worst thing that can happen is I have to dye more for you! I love the interaction I have with my customers, and will go out of my way to make sure that your experience buying from me and my shop is a great one- and hopefully one you want to repeat!
