I hope you enjoy browsing all of my latest vegan yarns and kits... If you aren't finding what you're looking for or the sizes and skein weights you're looking for, don't hesitate to send me a message as I'm always happy to create custom listings to meet your needs!

And remember to check in periodically... I'm going to be listing lots of gorgeous new color kits here in the next couple months... new gradient and ombré kits and some amazing 10-color mini skein collections. I'll also be streamlining the process for ordering colors individually, to help clean up some of the clutter in the shop and provide you with a speedier checkout experience.

~~Updated Shipping Rates~~
Unless otherwise specified in individual listings, these are my current shipping rates to the countries I ship to (I'm adding more countries slowly...If you would like to have your country added, let's talk...just send me a message. :)
- US (domestic shipping) FREE on orders over $35
US orders less than $35: $1- 2.00 first item, $0.50 each additional item
- Canada: $10.00 (USD) first item, $0.50 (USD) each additional item
- Australia, New Zealand, Ireland: $15.00 (USD) first item, $0.50 (USD) each additional item

~~Wholesale Inquiries~~ While I don't currently offer wholesale, I do have some amazing bulk discounts for larger purchases. If you are in need of yarn amounts exceeding $500, $750, or $1,000, please message me for the codes for these discounts, and to discuss how I can best meet the needs of your larger purchase in a timely fashion.

~~Yarn Bases in Heavier or Lighter Weights~~
I am slowly but surely getting all of the existing colors added to the shop in both DK (light worsted) and fingering weight options. If you don't see a color you need available in the weight you need, please request it by sending me a message.
**Currently, I have not been able to source a good quality plant based yarn for dyeing in Worsted, Bulky, or Mega Bulky. I am looking, looking, looking, though! I can tell you that multiple people have had success with knitting or crocheting 2 strands of my DK/ light worsted yarn together in creating heavier projects so this may be a good option for some of you in the meantime.

Colors that Inspire, by Women that Inspire

I've been passionate about both knitting and crochet since I was very young, and to say I'm addicted to yarn would be an understatement!

My desire to start my own hand dyed yarn business came from the constant experience of walking in to a craft store with seemingly endless color options but never being able to find all of the exact colors I wanted for a project in the SAME fiber base and weight. Sure I could find colors that I loved, if I didn't mind that some were cotton, and others were acrylic or wool, or that some were sock weight, and others mega bulky.

I'm hoping to provide numerous shades in the same fiber content and weight so that when you need 5-10 brilliant colors for your project you won't have to look very far!

The idea for naming the colors after inspiring women came from my desire to put more love and positive vibes out into the world. Too often I see women criticizing one another and/or comparing themselves to celebrities and the highly-filtered images of other women on social media, and wondering if they measure up. We all find ourselves wondering this, from time to time.

I wanted the women in my life to know they've made a difference. They've been an inspiration, both in my life, and in the lives of those around them. They've made incredible contributions to the world. Each woman's color is a reflection of her. Her beauty, her personality, her charm, her wit, her compassion, her intelligence, and on and on and on...

Frequently asked questions
Can these yarns be washed and dried?

Please don't let your wears get stinky! :) Yes, my yarn is perfectly washable but do please follow the care instructions you will find on your labels. Darker colors may bleed slightly on the first few washes.

I highly encourage you to not combine very light colors with very dark colors, and it's rarely a good idea to wash hand dyed yarn in water any warmer than lukewarm. In most cases, it's best to lay your items flat to dry and avoid the harshness of the dryer or the tendency for things to snag your beautiful work!

What if the colors look different when I receive my package than they looked on my screen?

While I make every attempt to accurately depict colors with my photography, no two electronic devices are alike in the way the colors will appear to you when you're shopping. Please also refer to my "Streak Meter Rating" that I provide with every color to get a feel for how much color variation you will find in my semi solids. It's also an excellent idea to view a listing on 2 separate screens (1 mobile and 1 desktop, if possible) prior to ordering. If you love the color twice, you're likely to love it even more when you receive it!

That being said, if your yarn arrives and you aren't in love with the colors, contact me ASAP about sending it back for a refund. If it comes back in its original condition I'm happy to exchange it!

Will projects made with your cotton yarn shrink?

The short answer is, "not if washed according to the care instructions provided". This yarn should be washed in cool water and laid flat to dry. You might be interested to know, though, that the yarn is handled at very high temperatures for a brief period while dyeing and rinsing, so any minimal shrinkage that could happen has probably already occurred well before you're using the yarn in a project.

How long will it take to receive my order?

Most orders will ship in 3-5 business days, so please add that time frame to the time it takes the USPS (First Class for smaller orders and Priority Mail for larger ones) to deliver your package to you. This is anywhere from 3-5 days for domestic (US) up to 21 days to Canada, and 4 weeks to Australia. Potential shipping delays will be longer and more frequent around the holidays.

Occasionally, I will have everything you ordered on-hand to ship right away. If this is the case for your order, your items should ship in 1-2 business days but if I have yarn to dye-to-order for you, it will take longer. Please note that the drying time alone for indie-dyed fibers (especially my light worsted weight yarn) is 36-48 hours.

How different are your different dye lots?

This will vary from color to color but darker shades typically have more variation between dye lots than lighter colors.

Please be aware that I dye in VERY small batches, in order to give every strand of fiber the TLC it deserves and to ensure even distribution within each batch. At this time I am only able to offer 960 yards (16 oz) of the same dye lot.

If you are in need of more than 960 yards of the same lot, I might be able to accommodate your request but I'm currently not dyeing in larger batches than that. If your project uses high amounts of the same color, I recommend alternating skeins every few rows.

Hand dyed yarn skeins are truly one-of-a-kind!

Why is hand dyed yarn more expensive than what my craft store carries?

In short, it's all the love!

Hand dyed fibers like mine are typically dyed in very small batches and given lots of special attention and handling. Every strand of yarn you'll find in my shop is in the care of my hands for no less than 3 hours. This ensures accurate and even color distribution and absorption, complete rinsing of excess dye and elimination of salt residue, and the time needed to beautifully wind, measure for length, and weigh every skein of yarn prior to packaging and shipping. You won't find any surprises like knots or splicing in my yarns, only beautiful color and predictable quality and softness.
