Did you know that when you place your order with us, we dye it just for you?

It’s true.

Here at Blue Moon – land of texture, color, and yes, chickens – we hand-paint your skeins of yarn and hanks of fiber to order.

We do this for a variety of reasons: to make sure we can offer you as many colorway selections as we possibly can, to give you as many yarn and fiber choices as we want, to keep costs reasonable for both you and us, and lastly, to assure knitter happiness with color, yarn and a job well done.

Of course, this takes a little bit more time than walking to a shelf in a storeroom, picking up a skein or two of yarn, and shipping it out (not that there’s anything wrong with that). When we hand-paint your order, we first bundle it, then soak it in our special magic solution. When soaking is done, we lay it out on our tables and paint it. We then steam it to set the dye after which it sits overnight to cool. The very next morning, we rinse and hang it from the rafters to dry and look pretty!  Since we reside in the Pacific Northwest this part of the process can take up to 48 hours for our large hanks of garment yarns and roving, even with our state-of-the-art dehumidifier. When we are sure it is dry, we take it down from its drying place, bundle and label each one, and ship them from our loving hands to yours!

We do our very best to process and ship orders within 10 to 15 business days of receipt. On occasion, due to sales, seasonal fluxes, or mother nature, processing times may take longer. If that’s the case, we’ll be sure to contact you and let you know.

It is very important to us that our knitters are happy knitters!

We truly appreciate your patience with our process!

About Us

Tina Newton

More than just a color genius, Tina brings to the yarn world a wealth of fiber knowledge and experience and an extraordinary artistic flair. The love affair started with spinning. Soon after, she began dyeing her own roving and discovered not only a talent but a passion. She then began translating her color theory from her own handspun onto millspun yarns and Blue Moon was born. Tina has a fertile imagination and the practical creativity to support it. This energy is contagious and inspiring. She loves sharing her vision and working with others. This is the spirit of Blue Moon. Tina is the mother of Narayan, Rabia, and Sophie. A vegetarian, homeschooler, therapist, aging hippie chick, and just a blast to be around. Besides chickens, she has a thing for firetrucks. Her favorite song is “Once in a Very Blue Moon.”
