What's with the brand name? Has anyone ever told you you’re crazy? Not just in general, but when it comes to your “unhealthy” obsession with yarn? Well, we as crafters are far from ordinary, and I say, “Embrace your crazy!”
Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” ~Marilyn Monroe
What kind of dye do you use? All my yarn is hand dyed in small batches with fade resistant, light-fast acid dyes made here in the US. Other substances used in my dye process are food-grade citric acid, table salt, and of course water.
Where's your yarn dyed and stored? My dye studio is right in my apartment! Located in Queens, NY, it's a smoke and pet free space.
Is it going to look like the picture? While I can't help differences in monitor color, I can say that what you see is what you get. Even with repeatable colorways, I photograph each dye lot individually. Whatever is listed for sale in the store is the actual item you will be receiving, and I do absolutely nothing to enhance or modify the listing photos on this site. When it comes to dyed to order yarns, I've done my best to accurately represent the colors on my Colorways page. Keep in mind that colorways will have some variation on different bases.
I don't have a swift and ball winder; can you wind my yarn? Yes! Ball winding is available for $1 per skein (or 5 minis).
What's with the "Chaos"? "Chaos" is the term I use for non-repeatable colorways. Many times these yarns will be one or two of a kind. Instead of giving each color a name, I assign it a number and call it Chaos. I plan to keep the Chaos coming on an ongoing basis!
How big is your dye lot? For most of my repeatable colorways, dye lots are 6 skeins. As with all hand dyed yarns, dye lots can vary quite a bit. It's always a good idea to purchase the full amount for your project all at once in order to get the best matching skeins. It's typically recommended to alternate skeins every other row when making a large project with hand dyed yarns. This can be used as a method to combat pooling, but it also helps hide the subtle differences from one skein to the next, since each skein is unique.
