Where to shop for Kindly Dyer yarns

Spring update – September 2022

After a long pause I have finally managed to list a few yarns for sale on my FELT shop (click here for link to it). At this stage there are only a few skeins of Merino 4-ply available. All of my yarns were largely sold out after the winter fibre festivals and I’m slowly working on building up supplies again.

Please be aware that I will need to pause the online shop again in October 2022 as I will be travelling overseas to see my dear family.

Markets and yarn festivals

I enjoy trading at local yarn festivals and hope to secure a place as a trader at Auckland’s Wool Fest in May 2023 (Kumeu Showgrounds) and at Capital Fibre Festival (Upper Hutt) on Saturday 1 July 2023.

I will post on the Kindly Dyer instagram and Facebook if I’m heading to any other yarn markets .  

General information

I dye yarns in small quantities only, and as time permits. That is the best way I can keep my promise to be kind to the environment, by using plant materials in-season, using and disposing of water carefully.

Natural dye yarns are unique and variable. Even though the same recipe may be used, the colours resulting from each dye batch may be different. Within the same batch there will be variation in the yarn colouring; this is the nature of natural and hand-dyed yarns.

Shipping, delivery and returns

Yarns listed on-line are ready to ship and will usually be despatched within 48 hours of purchase. I will notify the buyer when yarn is shipped, and if there are any delays I will let you know.

Within NZ – Parcels will be sent by standard courier services. Shipping starts at $4.50, plus 50c for each additional cake/skein.

If the yarn you receive does not meet your expectations please let me know within 14 days of receipt. (You can send a message using the FELT system.) You may return the yarn within 30 days of receipt, in the same condition that you received it. Return postage is at the buyers cost.

International – In general I do not ship overseas because of the negative environmental impact of sending (non-essential) product via long distance air transport.

If you are from overseas and have a special request please let me know and we can look at options.
