Updates

We’ve updated some of your faves and we’re adding new, vibrant “highlighter colors” this week. Stay tuned!
We’re dangerously close to getting caught up on our batt orders! Then... we can focus on listing the crazy amount of yarn we’ve spun, but had no time to list!

About

A creative life...

We tend to work all the time... We love hashing out new ideas, working in our own spaces--sometimes in the studio, sometimes with a good movie. We loooove movies! Even a day trip to go fishing can turn into an impromptu photo shoot whose colors, imagery appear later in our fibers, a painting, a sculpture.

Our work, our life is truly a love affair. We bring it home, take it back to the studio across the street -- our studio is twice the square footage of our home and we need it that way!

We used to keep regular studio/store hours but discovered that we're more productive and happy working in a more organic way as energy and inspiration permits. Being open by appointment and seasonally gives us the time and flexibility to invest in our family of dogs, cats, nieces and nephews, parents, brothers and sister and of course... the extended family we call our clients.

Be they a beautiful weaving or a school project, we absolutely thrill to the sight of the photos of completed works that our clients share with us. We wonder when we *don't* hear back from them, squeal with delight when we do. Creativity forges a bond, creates ripples of wondrous energy out in the world and we adore being a part of that.

    I've always worked in retail. I grew up in my family's auto parts store, owned and operated an antiques and jewelry store and now Wildethyme Art. It feels like I've come home here.

    My oldest memories are of making things... I can't sit still unless my hands are occupied-- like my hands are too loud! Wildethyme Art is not just a business to us, it's an extension of our life.

Frequently asked questions
Wholesale availability

We have a handful of wholesale accounts, but at this time, we are not looking for more. We thank you for your interest :)

Custom and personalized orders

The ability to customize, personalize orders is the number one reason we work mostly on a "made to order" basis. We want you to have everything just as you need/want it! We understand that this makes our shipping times slower, but we hope you will agree that we are worth the wait :)

Does your roving come in one, continuous piece?

Not always. Let us know if this is important, and we will make it happen.

Why is the shipping so high? Can you fix it?

It's a long, convoluted answer having to do with the fact that we offer variations of weight in our batts and other items. We pay the extra shipping on larger batts, but we have no way of setting the shipping lower on the sample sizes, so we have to meet somewhere in the middle --which is often WAY too much if you are ordering a quantity of sample batts.

And yes. We can fix it, just message us. Or.. check out and leave us a note reminding us to refund your excess shipping. Either way, we understand. We hate overpaying for shipping too :D

You forgot my felting needles. Will you send them?

If we forgot them, of course we will :D

But first... take a peek on the side of the foam. 99.99% of the time, they are there, just overlooked.

Why does it take 10-14 days to mail a batt?

We dye a very large proportion (60-75%!!) of our wool, Firestar and Silk. We're really proud of the number of colors we offer-- and we only have plans to do more. We do this because it the work we love to do, it's one of many things that we think make our work worthwhile, special. Additionally, we do not want our batts sitting in inventory, compacting from lack of use. And then... what if you want to customize the batt? We do that too :D

We make our batts to order because we make them for you— and we make a LOT of them, so there is usually a line when you order as well. We think they are worth the wait and hope that you will too. Naturally, if you need something faster, let us know. We work magic, that's what we do :D
