Where to shop for Kindly Dyer yarns

Summer update – January 2023

You’ll find a selection of Kindly Dyer Palliser DK yarn cakes at the Palliser Ridge woolshed store and at The Land Girl cafe in Pirinoa.

The Palliser Ridge woolshed store on the farm is open 12noon to 3pm Monday to Friday.

The Land Girl cafe usual hours Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri & Sun 8.30am to 3pm and Saturday 8.30am to 4pm. Check Facebook for updates.

I have re-activated the listings on my FELT shop (click here for link to it). There are now some Palliser DK yarn cakes and yarn kits for the Bounce Blanket – as mentioned in the latest blog post. At this stage there are only a few skeins of Merino 4-ply available, and I’m working on dyeing up supplies of these.

Markets and yarn festivals

I enjoy trading at local yarn festivals and will be trading at Auckland’s Woolfest on Saturday 27 May 2023 at Kumeu Showgrounds, and at Capital Fibre Festival at 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 or pop up venues.

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 $6.00, plus $2 for each additional cake/skein. It’s often difficult to predict courier fees so I will keep a watch on these. Courier fees have increased over the last year.

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.
