Last updated on March 4, 2011
I'm a trained textile designer/maker with a love of yarn and playing with colour. Subtle, strong and blended tones, variegated or stripes, experimenting and producing new yarns has become my passion!

All my yarns are hand painted with quality acid dyes and steam fixed. Each skein is as colourfast as possible and rinsed till the water runs clear. To ensure colourfastness, a cool handwash is recommended with gentle detergents.

Each skein is re-wound after the dyeing process as it shows up the colour palette of the yarn and makes it easier to imagine how each yarn could be used. If you would prefer your yarn to be wound into a centre-pull ball rather than a skein, just let me know and I'll be happy to do this for you.

I try to get the colours in each photograph are as true as possible but colours can vary from monitor to monitor. I want you to be happy with your yarn so if you are unsure or want clarification about anything, please do ask! You can contact me through the 'convo' button.

If you would like more than one skein in any colourway or if there is any colour that you would like to see in the shop in the future, I’d love to hear from you. Thank you for taking time to visit my shop and I hope you enjoy these yarns as much as I have enjoyed making them.

I prefer payment by Paypal - you don’t have to have a Paypal account to pay through Paypal, just a credit card.
I ship within three days of receipt of payment, usually the next day.

As I am based in the UK, all UK parcels are delivered 1st Class.

All International/Overseas parcels will be delivered using Standard Airmail. This means that US and other overseas countries will receive their yarn about 7-10 days after shipping. Buyers are responsible for all custom fees.

If you wish to insure, track your parcel or pay for quicker delivery, please let me know before checkout so I can give you a revised shipping cost.

I am happy to combine postage costs wherever possible.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be happy with your purchase and I try to represent all colours and products as accurately as I can.

However if you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason, please contact me so we can work out a happy solution.

If you plan to return your yarn, please contact me in advance. Yarn can only be returned if faulty, not if you change your mind. Buyer will be responsible for the return shipping costs.
