Hand dyed yarns worth the time you spend working with them.

Hand knitting takes a long time. Even when it's only a small hat that we can whip up in an hour, that's still about 45 more minutes than it would have taken to go buy a hat at the store. So why do we do it?

I can't say for sure why you knit, but I know I knit because I love knowing I'm the one who created something. I love picking out a soft squishy yarn in the exact shade I need for that shawl pattern I've been eyeing, or finding the right strong wool for a sturdy sweater. I love working with my hands and feeling those hours of love that went into the final product.

I love the look on my mother's face when she unfolds the warm afghan I spent months knitting her for Christmas. I love the pride in my grandmother's voice as she boasts that her granddaughter made her the lovely lace shawl she's wearing. I love watching my little brother try his hardest to get his little fingers to hold the yarn properly, so he can knit a hat just like mine.

These moments are why we knit. We no longer live in a society where we must make a sweater if we want to have one. Department stores abound. But we want something special, something we touched with our hands and with our souls. So we pick up our needles or our hooks or our looms, and we get to work.

I started dyeing yarn because color fascinates me. As a knitter, I've long loved walking into my LYS and soaking in all shades surrounding me. One day, I walked into the shop, and I couldn't find the color I needed. Among all those gorgeous shades, there simply wasn't a mustard yellow in a merino fingering weight yarn. I couldn't believe it. But that's when I realized: I could make my own. From the moment I turned on the dye pot, I knew I needed to do this for more than just my personal projects.

I seek out luxurious base yarns and cover them with intriguing colors perfect for each individual who chooses to craft with them. I create colors that merge and mingle on the skein in ways that make you itch to keep knitting just to watch the shades flow through your fingers. My personal touch just adds another dimension of soul to that final product, another hand that has helped this lump of fiber transform into something magnificent. Our hands are the link to our hearts, and each hand that contributes to your project is just another heart wrapped up in the final creation.

I would absolutely love to maintain a connection with everyone who chooses my yarn for their next fiber adventure. To that end, I'm offering 10% off your next purchase to those who subscribe to my mailing list, found here: http://uniquechicstudio.com

Thank you for checking out Unique Chic Studio. I've been knitting for nearly ten years, and I've always loved to play with color. When I realized I couldn't always find the yarn colors I was looking for, I turned to the dye pot, and I've never looked back.

Returns and exchanges
I want all of my customers to be stoked to work with my yarn. If you receive something that is not what you wanted or expected, please let me know and I will return or exchange your item after you ship it back to me. Shipping costs will not be refunded.
Some of my yarns are ready to ship, some are dyed to order. Please check the Shop Announcement for current processing times on dye to order items. If you need a rush order on anything, let me know in the "notes to seller" portion of the checkout, and I will accommodate your request as best I can.

A beautiful skein of yarn is the perfect gift for a knitter. Let me know if you purchase is a gift, and I will include a hand written card to the recipient.

I will ship your item via first class mail USPS. If you'd like insurance, please let me know, and I can adjust the cost.

I'm happy to upgrade your shipping to priority or express mail. Please contact me in order to make the necessary arrangements, including payment.

If you order multiple items and the shipping charges combined get too high, I will refund you for any difference between the actual cost and the billed cost.
Additional policies and FAQs
Hand dyed yarn is slightly irregular by it's nature. No two skeins are exactly alike, so if you need more than one skein for your project, please alternate between the two to ensure a seamless color transition.

I do my best to present an accurate color representation in my photographs, but do know that the monitors vary and each skein of hand dyed yarn comes out of the pot differently.

I use low impact, heavy metal free, professional acid dyes to ensure your yarn will be colorfast, lightfast, and beautifully variegated throughout.
