Did you know that all those yarn bands on my hand dyed yarn are actually made by me. Each month I need to make about 500 of them. Often a lot more. Some months I swear and curse and say "Argh! I'll just get some cardboard ones printed" and then I stand back and look at the grosgrain ribbon yarn bands and know that I cannot do that. In fact, I actually love how they look and I've had many, many customers tell me that too.

 

 

Please excuse my rubbish photos taken at night on my phone in artificial light. I was making yarn bands last night and thought I'd quickly take some photos to show how it's done. They're very easy to make, just lengths of grosgrain ribbon at 40mm and iron on transfer paper. That's all.

 

 

Very simple but effective and finished off with a button badge with the Countess Ablaze logo and a small cardboard tag with the yarn information on.
This yarn is from The Twelve Caesars Collection and they have their own special tags with the Caesars printed on too.

 

 

When I'm packing orders, smaller orders of 1, 2 or 3 skeins get packed in a hand stamped brown paper bag and fastened with a Thank You sticker. I love handmade packaging and love small touches in presentation, especially when buying artisan products.
