    Announcement    Yarnahoy was started to scratch an itch about my love for fabrics and textiles. I am a weaver (learned weaving for 2 years at the Hand workshop in Richmond, VA), a spinner (was a member of Clothos Spinning Guild in VA for 2 years) and a yarn dyer. Every time I set up my bathtub to dye my yarn, my husband would pull a serious face & ask "Are you going to dye?" That joke never got old for him.

    I am also a seamstress & design custom garments at Singing Slowly on Etsy. My background in Architecture and the applied arts helps me approach design in novel ways. It also helps that I had hands on exposure to natural & synthetic fibers from my years at the guild & weavers workshop.

    About

    Yarnahoy was started to scratch an itch about my love for fabrics and textiles. I am a weaver (learned weaving for 2 years at the Hand workshop in Richmond, VA), a spinner (was a member of Clothos Spinning Guild in VA for 2 years) and a yarn dyer. Every time I set up my bathtub to dye my yarn, my husband would pull a serious face & ask "Are you going to dye?" That joke never got old for him.

    I am also a seamstress & design custom garments at Singing Slowly on Etsy. My background in Architecture and the fine arts helps me approach design in novel ways. It also helps that I learnt a ton about natural & synthetic fibers from my years at the guild & weavers workshop.

    While I no longer sell hand dyed yarn and fabrics, I now write about the approaches I have personally adopted to run a successful, small scale online-only textiles business.

    Welcome to Yarnahoy! Your stop for those very special textiles & fibers that jump up & grab you :)
    I travel to various parts of India (as a photographer) & that's where I buy fabric scraps from. Much of the fabric listed in my shop contains ancient folk art techniques from various parts of the Indian sub continent.
    The rovings & spinning batts are designed by me in the UK.

    Shipping
    I visit the post office twice a week. Most items are shipped out within 3 business days. My full time job does not permit more mailing trips at this point. But do let me know if you'd like an item expedited. There is an extra charge for that.
    I currently ship First Class Royal Mail, which does not have tracking. Tracking an item incurs an extra cost.
    Items lost in transit cannot be refunded. Please make sure you tell me to invoice you for 'International signed for with tracking' if that is a concern. That way the package can be tracked.
    Sorry, but I do not currently ship to the Indian subcontinent. All sales made to persons there will have to be canceled & refunded.

    IMPORTANT NOTE about Fabrics: Since I do not make the fabric/cloth items I sell, I cannot guarantee their color fastness or ability to wear. Please check for color fastness before you work them into a project. Please wash all like colors together. It is always advisable to wash scraps before using them as I do not know whether they have been cleaned or pre-shrunk.

    WHOLESALE: If you would like to place a wholesale order, feel free to drop me an email & we can go from there.
