Tanis Fiber Arts is a small family-run business. We work hard, and take a lot of pride in what we do.
Every skein is a labour of love. We dye all the yarn by hand in small batches of five to ten skeins at a time. We strive for perfection and consistency, but as with any hand made artisanal product, there are slight variations between skeins (even within the same batch). This is all part of the distinctive beauty of hand dyed yarn. Some skeins may have spots or speckles, this is what makes them truly one of a kind and are my favorite things, embrace the uniqueness!
If you are knitting a large project and want to ensure there will be no noticeable shifts in colour or tone between skeins, we recommend alternating between two skeins every couple of rows. Please try to purchase enough yarn to complete your project - though we do not have numbered dye lots, we always fill orders for multiple skeins with yarn from the same batch.
We deal with issues that may arise on a case by case basis. Typically, we do not accept returns on yarn that has been wound into a ball and / or knit with, but if you run into a problem while working with our yarn, please don't hesitate to contact us and we will do our best to resolve any issues.

All orders are shipped with Canada Post. Orders shipped within Canada will have a tracking number; if you would like to track your package, just send me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I can provide you with the information you need. Domestic orders are usually delivered within 1-5 business days of shipping. For international orders we usually use Small Packet Air mail, orders typically take 6-10 business days to arrive. Canada Post does not provide a tracking number for Small Packet Air Mail - if you would like your order to be traceable we can upgrade your shipping for a small fee.
