This is a VERY special box of yarn, straight from Japan! It has 21 different cones of textured yarns, including at least one cone of sequins. These sets are rare and only come out once our twice a year.
I have extremely limited quantities of the special seasonal warps and yarn sets, and when they are gone there is no guarantee that there will be any more of the same. If you like something, grab it :)

Other Frequently Asked Questions-
Where do you get your fiber? -It's very important to me that my fiber comes from animal friendly farms that do not kill or eat their animals. I always make sure the animals are well cared for and happy critters. I source from local farms and animal rescue farms). I also LOVE to support other independent artists like myself. For the solid merino top I use in my batts, I use Ashland Bay merino top. It's beautifully dyed and you never have to worry about colors bleeding.
I hand dye all of my fiber using professional light fast and wash fast acid dyes. My dyepots are spontaneous and one of a kind. I dye in small batches that are perfect for mixing and matching.
Do you give lessons? -YES!! If you are in the North Carolina Triangle/Triad area and would like private lessons send me a convo and we can schedule it! Lessons are $35 and hr, with a 2hr min. We can work on art yarn spinning, carding and anything else you'd like to try! -I'm also teaching workshops, so watch www.jazzturtle.com for current workshop dates.
How do you price your fiber and yarns? -Fiber art is not a quickie task. I try to be very conscious of fair pricing in terms of what's available. Here's my process- I must wash my farmwool, then dye it (add cost of time/electricity/water/soap/dye/citric acid). I use sometimes over a dozen ingredients in a single carded artbatt, and that takes time to gather and prep, as well as to card. I do not have an electric carder- it's all by hand (and shoulder!) The hand dyed tops I have are blended with the highest micron merino, and the most luxurious blends. I do not buy these combed tops in large bumps- because then I wouldn't be able to offer the variety of blends- so I pay a higher price because I get many different blends in smaller batches. When I spin yarns, I add to that prep the time it takes gather my palette(add in's and such), prep the fiber, spin the yarn, wind the skein and set the twist. So add that onto the price I pay for my fiber, plus the expenses I've incurred- and that's how my yarns and batts are priced. It really takes MUCH more work than it looks!
