These are the things that a spinner's dreams are made of;) Beautiful silk in intense colors! Long, textured fibers that draft similar to a roving but aren't slippery like silk top! Shimmery shine and unicorns... Ok... so no unicorns in the fiber... but I am a spinner and I DO dream of unicorns!!!
My sweet taffy is carded silk fibers (laps) that still hold a ton of texture and don't act like slippery silk top. (I don't prefer top at all as my wheel just eats it without remorse for my bank account. I just can't seem to get it right!)
I love the texture that these fibers afford my yarns as I can spin them alongside or add them into a yarn with a batt without having to add silk noil. Noil has its place, but it has always seemed like it's made specifically to feed to carders to add those little bits of color like sprinkles on a big ice cream sundae! And I love them! Just not in everything...
This particular Taffy is Sunken Treasure 6g. And because silk is so light, airy and ethereal, a little goes a long way;)
As always, these fibers were created with so much love and stared at for just the right amount of time before being listed on Etsy! Smoke free, pet free (unicorns only in my dreams... promise!) they come to you from a tiny oasis in the scorched state of Texas. In my yard, roses bloom, grass grows green, you can smell rosemary, mint, and hear chickens doing something ridiculous...
I ship through USPS within 3 days of receipt of payment. Usually a Monday/Wed/Friday thing as it would get costly to keep driving to the PO every day :) However, if you're like me and hold your breath by the mailbox when waiting for your packages to arrive, let me know :) I don't want any crafty crafters passing out by their mailboxes from lack of oxygen! ALSO::: I ship first class to save you money. If you would like insurance on your items, please convo me and I'll send you a revised invoice. Otherwise, I will always do whatever I can to help you find your packages and/or establish their where-abouts, but it is the USPS, so I'm not responsible for lost packages--so far, though, we haven't had a single one! I do ship outside the states to just about everywhere! And I only charge actual shipping costs! Just convo after completing your purchase and I'll convo a shipping charge to you :)
If you have a question, let's have a conversation and I'll answer almost immediately :) I expect payment inside of four days of purchase if mailing payment, same day if using Paypal.
Returns & exchanges
Please insure your items and make sure that you ask all the questions necessary. I will accept returns, but I don't refund shipping charges.
