trampledbygeese is taking a short break

Note from shop owner I met some weavers who are interested in working with my handspun to create truly local clothing. Locally sourced materials combined with local handmade skill, how could I say no? I'm taking what I'm learning from them and reassessing my yarns with the intention to relaunch my etsy shop this summer.

If there was something you saw that you liked, feel free to get in touch.

This yarn was wonderful to work with. It had a nice thick and thin texture and I made a lovely pair of knitted mittens for my mom, as a Christmas gift!

Lovely yarn, just as pictured. It's shaping into a real nice sock! Quick shipping as well. Thanks : )

Welcome. All listings come from a scent free, pet free, smoke free, home and are hand made by me unless otherwise noted. Each item is unique and produced with as little environmental impact as possible.

Thank you for stopping by my shop.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
Payment
I only accept Paypal payment at this time.

Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the price. Buyers are responsible for these charges.
Shipping
I ship using Canada Post, and aim to have the item in the mail within three business days of receiving payment. I use the most affordable method which is usually the slowest.

If you would like insurance or parcel tracking, please let me know before making payment. I can adjust the price of shipping accordingly.

If there are any delays (due to differences between paypal and etsy mailing address for example), I will notify you via etsy convo. If I do not get a reply from you in 5 days, then I will refund the money and cancel the order.
Refunds and Exchanges
If for any reason you are unhappy with your order, please let me know and we can work together to make it right.

If you wish to return the item (unused only) contact me before you send it. I will refund the purchase when the item arrives back. Note, however, that I do not refund the price of return shipping.

When you contact me prior to returning the item, please take a moment to tell me why it wasn't the right item for you, and a little bit about what you had planned to use it for, so that I can use this information to improve my store in future. I appreciate your constructive feedback.

If the item is lost in the post, and it's been a reasonable time (can take over a month to arrive depending on your location) for shipping and processing through customs, contact me and we can work something out. Since what I make is one of a kind, I cannot just send another one, but I may be able to custom make something similar, or arrange a refund. Contact me, we'll talk and see what solution is best for the situation.

There is simply too much to do on the farm to check my emails daily, but I frequently check my Etsy account. Etsy convo is the fastest and preferred way to contact me.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am more than willing to wind (most) yarns into centre pull balls. But please be aware that it will add several extra days to ship as I wind the yarn by hand AND it will change your cost of shipping CONSIDERABLY! Canada Post charges by shape and volume of the package as well as by weight. So I can ship the yarn flat in a padded envelope I am able to keep the shipping costs far more affordable.

If you would like your yarn wound into a ball, please let me know before you order so I can adjust the shipping price accordingly. Thank you.

Please be aware, different monitors and computers show colour differently. I try my very best to take accurate photos of the product. The photos are taken in natural light unless otherwise noted.
