Item details

Handspun art yarn, soft,various yarns, red, black by SpinningStreak
Are you ready for an art yarn? But one you can actually USE? Not something over twisted, lumpy, liable to come apart....or too wildly coloured?
A new range of handspun yarn.
For this one I prepared an art yarn batt on my drum carder (see last picture) The batt included various wools, silk threads, Wensleydale locks and a touch of Angelina sparkle. I then spun it up and plied it with a fine kid mohair mix yarn in black. The wool is spun slightly thick and thin with some slubs - please see last picture against the tape measure for an accurate idea of the gauge. The skein is soft and chunky in various shades of red and pink with touches of blue and cream - funky and unique enough to be called an 'art yarn', but totally usable. It would make a great pair of unique hand warmers, with a toning welt of commercial yarn - or, of course, it could be used as an embellishment in a larger project or in weaving.

This listing consists of 1 small skein, 28g/50yds.

Shipping is usually by Royal Mail. I post Mon. to Sat. within 3 days, very often within 24 hours. I always obtain the certificate of posting but do not take out additional insurance or tracking services unless requested by the customer.
Royal Mail International estimates 5 to 7 working days for delivery to World Zone 1 (inc. USA) They do not consider an item lost until 25 working days have elapsed, so will not consider any claim for compensation before this.

The customs declaration labels put on the packages will never contain false information for any reason and it is the buyer's responsibility to be aware of what can be legally imported into their particular country.
The buyer is responsible for all import duties and any custom charges their order may incur - please do check this out. Under EU regulations, I am required to inform you of any potential taxes, charges or fees that you may be liable for. Please contact me if you wish me to research these for you - if you do not contact me for this service then I will not be liable to pay these charges. This means any taxes, charges or fees that your country may impose on you when your parcel arrives in your country or at your delivery address.


I accept both Paypal and Direct Checkout.
Paypal accept major cards, so you do not have to have a Paypal account.

Returns & exchanges

If, for any reason, you are not happy when you receive your purchase, please contact me straightaway. My aim is 100% satisfaction and so far (nearly 10 years on Etsy) I have achieved this.
Under EU regulations, items can be returned up to 14 days after receipt of the goods. Within that time frame, buyers can change their minds and return products without providing a reason. You may return the item using this form: http://extfiles.etsy.com/cancellation-forms/EUCancellationFormEN.pdf
The buyer will be responsible for the cost of return delivery, and you are strongly advised this should be sent 'signed for' or insured as I will not be able to refund any order not received. When returning an item it is advisable to notify me before posting it, so that I know to expect it, and please ensure you retain proof of posting until I have confirmed receipt and refunded you.

Additional policies

Please do contact me if you require any further information. Apart from August (when I have very limited internet access) you will be answered within 24 hours - often within 24 minutes!
