Does anyone remember Phoebe, the shephardess with serious attitude from As You Like It? She's one of my favorite fiesty characters, and she claimed this colorway the minute it came to mind. A no-nonsense earth-based set of colors, and yet, color comes to play to remind us that hard-working women with dirt under their nails dream of romance and pretty things, too.
I handpainted this roving with chestnut and coral professional acid dyes, then left a stretch of the natural ivory colored goodness. This is an 80/20% blend of merino wool and tussah silk. The silk will give the finished yarn strength, a little sheen and a touch of elegance.
I finish all of my fibers with Soak wash.
This yarn comes from a cat loving house, but is kept away from the wee beasties. Still, a stray cat hair may hitch a ride. If you are allergic, please purchase with caution.
This is *not* superwash fiber, so it may felt. If this is not your intention, I recommend hand washing your yarn and/or finished object in cool water and laying flat to dry.
Though I have tried to accurately capture color in my photos, all monitors display differently, so keep that in mind while shopping.
I ship via USPS. This means first class or priority, depending on your preference. If you would like priority, please let me know in the message to seller when you order. This will change your shipping fee.
If you would like insurance, please let me know that as well. Again, I will adjust your price.
I have added international prices. Please make sure that I have all necessary customs information.
I am required to charge 8.75% sales tax to all California buyers.
I accept Paypal of all sorts and money orders. If paying by e-check, I will not ship until the check clears.
Payment is expected within 72 hours. If I have not received payment in that time, I will contact you and extend 24 hours. After that, I will cancel the sale and relist.
Returns & exchanges
Please make sure to check the shipping addresses on both your Etsy and PayPal accounts to be certain that they are up to date. I will not refund shipments that are not received as a result of an address mistake or oversight on the buyer's end.
If you have other concerns with the product you receive, please convo me within 14 days of purchase. We can work something out.
I am not a smoker, but I do live in a cat-friendly household. If you are highly sensitive to cats, my offerings are probably not for you.
