Indigodragonfly Handdyed Yarn and Roving

So, did I mention I started a yarn dyeing company last week?  Me, a stove, some pots and way too much imagination!!

This is the first update…a small one to use up undyed yarn and fibre in my collection.  I’m expecting my first order of undyed yarn later this week, so there is much more coming soon.  To join my mailing list and hear about updates:  indigodragonfly.K AT gmail.com.

For the moment, I’m going to run the “store” from my blog.  Here’s how it will work:  

If you’re interested in purchasing any of my yarn and/or roving, please send me an email at indigodragonfly.K AT gmail.com (replace AT with “@”, no spaces) indicating what you would like.  First email request for each yarn/fibre secures it.  I will send you a paypal invoice for the full amount plus shipping and ship the packages off as soon as possible!  Shipping charges to the US will start at  $4.70 (1 skein of sock yarn) or $6.90 (1-2 batches of most rovings/1 -2 skeins of larger skeins of yarn).   Canada Post doesn’t make shipping charges for Canadian or International packages easy, so I will send you a shipping quote for your order for your approval.  Sound good?

Best attempts are made to photograph colours accurately, however colours do differ from monitor to monitor (I’ve checked).  I’ve also described the colours…and hope that helps.  Custom orders are always welcomed!  Just email me with what you have in mind.

Now…on to the update!
