Fluvial Fibers Handspun

Fluvial Fibers Handspun

Pittsburgh, PA



I love to spin unique, usable yarns. All my yarns are handspun by me from natural or dyed fibers in my smoke-free, pet-free home.

I have been spinning for more than a decade and reached a point in the last few years where I realized I had spun more yarn than I could probably ever reasonably knit. So I have decided to start selling my handspun so that others can experience the joy that is knitting, crocheting, or weaving with yarn that was made by hand.

Every skein you see in my shop was spun by me in a smoke-free, pet-free home.

Shipping Policy

I will make every effort to ship your order within one business day. If for any reason I cannot ship your order right away, I will be in touch as soon as possible to let you know when your order will ship.

Please check my shop announcements to see if I am traveling or otherwise away from my shop stock. If there will be a significant delay in shipping, I will post it there.

Return Policy

If you are unhappy with your yarn in any way, please contact me so we can talk about how to make it right. I will only accept returns of skeins that are in original saleable condition (i.e., in the original hank/skein, clean, dry, and free from any odors).

  • Yes, I really do spin every skein in my shop! Every inch of yarn you see has passed through my fingers at least once.
  • I am primarily a wheel spinner. I own three wheels: a Lendrum folding wheel, a Hansen miniSpinner, and a Schacht Flatiron. I also have a number of spindles, but I do not spin on them as often.
  • My prices are based on a combination of the length of the skein and the number of plies in the yarn. Basically, the more complicated the yarn was to spin, the more it will cost. Keep in mind that it takes a great deal of time to spin fine yarns (I might, for instance, spend 20 hours or more spinning a 350 yard skein of three-ply fingering weight sock yarn). I also usually spin with indie-dyed fiber, so that might add $15-30 to my expenses.

I am open to custom spinning commissions! If you have fiber you are interested in having me spin for you, please contact me for a quote and an approximate turnaround time.
