I am an independent hand spinner, wool dyer and fibre artist from Germany. Apart from "All The Pretty Fibers" I also run the online site "Needlework's Pleasure" and "DieHandspinnerin". Everyone, please feel free to contact me whenever you have any questions. I always reply within 24 hours once I have received your message :o)
Speak to you soon,
Dear all, until further notice from the postal services I have had to remove additional shipping destinations from my shipping list in my etsy shops, as international and local shipping routes have been reduced drastically as safety measures due to the pandemic:
Apart from the US, I have also removed Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Singapore and Mexico.
These countries do not accept any international mail, at least not from Germany at the moment (except letter mail/documents). I will keep checking the daily postal updates and let you all know of any changes.
Everyone around the world, keep safe & well, and let your creativity flow!
To all my wonderful US customers – I received this update today, March 26th, issued by the German postal service:
“…USA: At this time, transport capacities to the USA are substantially reduced. As such, special measures are required to maintain the shipping of letters and parcels. It is still possible to send letter mail items (documents) to the USA. Small packet products are no longer available for shipment to the USA until further notice….”
Dear all, I will need to remove the US from my list of shipping locations for now, but I will certainly keep an eye on the postal infos and let you all know once shipping to the US will be possible again. This information can also be found in my announcement section of my etsy store.
Shipping to all other countries is running as usual, though the transit time may be longer than the average delivery time, so patience is the word. :o)
Everyone around the world, take care, keep creativity going and be safe & well!!

I also finished a new one of a kind chunky crochet slouch hat that I made completely from scratch with my handspun and handpainted yarns, including a very special tailspun curly art yarn! As all my artisan garments the slouch hat contains no synthetic fibers, just all pure soft gorgeous sheep wool. Now displayed at StoneCircleWools :o)
Here are my latest batches of hand dyed rovings (polwarth and icelandic babes) and super soft and yummy pure merino superwash sock weight yarns, all displayed at All The Pretty Fibers :o) Flat international priority shipping in place!
These are my new batches of super soft (18.5micron) and smooth hand dyed merino-nylon superwash sock yarns in rich colorways, with a tight twist for extra durability, 3.5oz/440yds (100g/400m). Perfect not just for sock knitting but also for hats, gloves, scarves, babywear and for weaving projects! The yarns are now displayed in my etsy store AllThePrettyFibers :o)
Before the year is over I thought I should make some fresh soaps, as almost all of them sold at the last craft fair. So here they are, a beautiful 20 lbs (9kg) selection of fine traditional cold processed soaps with precious unsaponified jojoba oil and pure cocoa butter, producing a wonderfully rich lather: LEMON, MASALA CHAI (SPICE TEA), FRANGIPANI, ENGLISH ROSE, CINNAMON, and my favorite HONEY BLOSSOM. Also perfect as shampoo bars and a real treat with all the goodness of skin nourishing pure plant oils and moisturising natural glycerine. All soaps are vegan and palm oil free.
Note: my soaps are licensed to be sold within the European Union only, I´m afraid. Outside of the EU I would need to get a license for every individual state/country I want to export my soaps to, and that would cost me half a kingdom. I wish there was just one worldwide soap license available that would be valid everywhere – wouldn´t that make bureaucracy a BREEZE!!!
