It started innocently with wanting to learn how to knit a pair of fingerless gloves. That desire has created a chain reaction connecting me to a web of wool...

The first time I knit a project with hand dyed, variegated yarn, I was hooked. Watching the beauty of the project unfold with this one of a kind yarn - I couldn't put the knitting needles down!! That magic is why I want to share it with you.

Each color way and product has been created from the beauty found in my everyday life. All of my hand dying is done in small batches creating a one of a kind yarn. While some hand dyed color ways may look similar, each yarn is truly unique.

I am an knitter, spinner, suburban homesteader, and lover of the woods.

Thank you for sharing in my journey..

Professional acid fast dyes are used when creating my hand dyed yarns unless otherwise specified.

All yarns are rinsed multiple times until the water is clear. Dark / saturated / magenta colors *may* leave a tint of dye in your rinse water. For best results when blocking, soak garments briefly in cold water without additional fiber enhancement additives.


Please convo me at the time of your order placement with any questions or requests about your dyed to order item. You will receive on convo from me containing a photo of your ACTUAL item prior to it shipping. If I do not hear back from you, the item will ship and you will not have the option to cancel the order. Dyed to Order items are regrettably, not returnable. Items will normally ship in a week, but can take 10-14 days depending on yarn availability and dry time. Please feel free to convo me with any specific expectations you may have prior to placing your order.


Custom orders can be considered via Etsy Convo. Please send me a message so that I can discuss your request with you personally! Once your custom order is completed, you will receive a direct link to it via Etsy Convo and it will be ready for purchase under the 'Reserved Order' tab. See next item.


If you purchase a "reserved" order that was not specifically made / reserved for you, the order will be cancelled and your purchase will be refunded.

'Reserved items' need to be purchased within 4 days. If you do not contact me or purchase the items, the reserved listing will be converted to a public listing without additional notice.


As a solo, small batch dyer, I am unfortunately unable to offer wholesale volumes at this time.


• All photos are of the actual items being offered for sale (except dyed to order items) and represent, as closely as possible, what you will receive. By providing more than one photo per item, I hope that you will see any variation of color / texture / detail that may be in the product.

• All skeins are unique in color, saturation and speckle. While alternating skeins may help distribute colors, I cannot guarantee they will match. This is the nature and charm of hand dyed yarns.

• Most yarns are re-skeined. However, this will be reflected in the individual listings.

• I am unable to offer cake winding services at this time.

• Please keep in mind every computer monitor displays colors a little differently so the colour of an actual item may appear different in person than it does in the photos on your screen.

• Props used in photographing are not included in the sale of the item.

• All items are created and shipped from a perfume free, smoke free, cat friendly home.
