HISTORY OF A MONKEYSPUN YARN

The Spun Monkey carefully chooses fiber from small family farms and is particularly concerned about the welfare of animals and sustainable practices. I always purchase my fiber directly from the farm or from a fellow indie crafter who purchases directly from the farm. I often have the wool sent to a small, family-owned mill for processing into roving. I have been on dyeing hiatus as I am making the transition to using all natural dyes from my home studio. While I'm getting set up, I have been purchasing dyed wool from great indie folks with similar values, like Insubordiknit and Holly EQQ (Oceans of Fiber). Once I've spun a yarn, it is set in a warm water bath with a mild, organic soap (usually lavender, cinnamon or cedar to keep pests away!), which is the same way you should care for your finished knit.

SHIPPING INFO
NEW POLICY! The Spun Monkey ships all orders via USPS First Class mail for a flat rate of $3, no matter the size of the order. If you wish to have your item shipped priority or other expedited shipping, please contact me for arrangements, as this would incur an additional fee. I would also be happy to insure your package or use delivery confirmation. If you are an international customer, please contact me before ordering so that I can calculate your shipping cost. Insurance can be added to any purchase for an additional charge.

All orders shipped within Vermont will incur a 6% sales tax.

Please remember that The Spun Monkey Fiber Shoppe is not responsible for items that are lost in the mail. Be sure to give accurate shipping information at the time of your order!

As a steward of mother Earth, The Spun Monkey Fiber Shoppe will reuse/recycle packaging materials whenever possible. Don't be surprised if you receive a padded envelope that is a little wrinkly from previous use, or any one of the small boxes we might receive from who-knows-where, that once held a book or a toy for the little guy, and is now the proud bearer of your handspun treasure. If I have some on hand, I will reuse tissue paper, but usually your purchases will be wrapped in tree-free 100% hemp, unbleached tissue paper.

PAYMENTS
Credit card payments are processed through Paypal's secure server. You need not have a Paypal account in order to make payments through my shopping cart. If you would prefer to pay with a money order or personal check, please contact me before ordering. I will put your items on hold until payment is received and funds are cleared.
