Hand-wash all finished garments in luke warm, gentle soap and lay flat to dry. This wool has been treated for color/light fastness with organic materials. The colors will not run if the recommended washing instructions are followed. All remnants of this should be washed away in the numerous baths this yarn goes through from start to finish. If you have any allergies to dyes or dyestuff, please contact us to confirm this will not bother you.
This wool was hand washed and processed and thus some small vegetation matter remains. As with all hand made items, there may be some variance in the thickness of fibers - this is after all what makes it unique! The wool has been washed in organic, chemical free soap, hand hand carded, dyed and spun.

All returns must be made within 5 days of your receiving the item. Please remember that you are purchasing hand spun wool. There will be vegetation and each is unique. We do our best to give accurate measurements, weights and all information possible. If you've purchased the material and found that it's not to your liking we're very sorry you'd like to return it. The item may be returned and a refund will be made, minus original shipping charges and $5.00 restocking fee.
The item must remain in it's original wrapper, remain in skein form and not have been used in any way. (not frogged and re-wrapped). If the item is returned and smells of smoke, has been used, is stained or dirty we are unable to offer a refund at all.
Any return shipping charges are the responsibility of the customer making the return.
We are also unable to take leftover yarn. If you have 200yds or only used a small portion from a skein there are lots of things you can do with this! you just can't return it :)
If purchasing bulk orders of 3 skeins or more, we can offer bulk discounts of %5. Please include coupon code 'BULKINGUP3'
Larger projects do require more yarn and we understand that this can be costly. If you require a certain yardage over 300yds we can offer you a discount. This cannot be applied to pre-made yarns listed. We have a variety of fibers, colors and patterns that you may choose from. The first 150yds range from $25-40.00 depending on the fiber and pattern with each consecutive yard $0.10-0.20. As this is done on the bobbin we will spin as close to your required yardage as possible. This yardage may go over and all additional yardage will be included in the final price. Please send us a message here on etsy or at email@example.com for more information!
If you've stashed away your own fiber and would like it spun, we can do this as well! Dog fur, sheeps fiber, llama, alpaca - whatever! We can also blend colors or fibers or dye them $3/skien. This is a flat rate of 25.00 for the initial $150yds. Each additional yard is $0.07. We would be happy to spin the entirety of the fiber or to a specific yardage. We do require that these fibers be clean (in the very least skirted) prior to them coming to us. If you're unsure how to wash and process fibers, we'd be happy to do this for you. A processing fee will be added to your order per lb of fiber. $15 for cleaning and carding, or $10 for carding.
All custom made yardage will be spun over never under the required amount - we know what it's like to run out at the last row!!
HOW WE'RE CRUELTY FREE:
Most importantly, my yarns are cruelty free. We raise our own flock of sheep and Alpaca right here on our farm. I know each's personality and have a bond with them all. They are more than livestock! My boys love tending to our flock and spending time in the paddock is quite therapeutic. Shearing is done every year to prevent skin problems that can be caused by long matted fur.
As the animals know us from our many daily visits to the pasture, they are not stressed at shearing or check up time. If you're ever in our area, visit our farm gate shop for yourself and see our beautiful herd.
