Could there be a better card for the fiber artist than The Magician? The Magician is the second card in the major arcana and represents the manifestation of our potential! Consider the Magician when facing a problematic knitting or crochet problem or the daunting task of warping your loom! The Magician isn’t there to magically make your problems disappear, but rather, The Magician represents your ability to do the work yourself. The familiar image of the Magician is of a person standing in front of a table set with the four suits of the tarot deck (cups, pentacles, wands, and swords), representing the four elements (water, earth, fire, and air). They need these tools to solve their problems and set to work. These tools are also neatly placed so that they know where each thing is. When you see this card, you have what it takes to do the work before you. Whether that is in your fiber work or your daily life. You aren’t unequipped. The Magician won’t let you start until you are ready. So pick up your crochet hook, wind that ball of yarn, oil your wheel, and get started!

While the mill states that some bases are machine-washable superwash yarn, this is a hand-dyed product. Our process ensures that the dye has been completely exhausted and the water runs clear during the final rinse. However, some bleeding may occur with different detergents and water quality. We suggest hand washing using a wool-safe wash such as Soak and drying flat or line drying. 

 All attempts are made to show our yarns as close to their actual colors as possible. Colors may vary depending on monitors and lighting. Some yarns (such as those on Mohair) will come out muted, and speckles will have more of a watercolor effect or have a sheen due to their fiber content. We do not accept returns except where the item arrives damaged. Our yarns come in a skein. We highly recommend using a swift and ball winder before working with the yarn. At this time we do not offer a ball winding service.

 Some of our photos may show more than one skein; the price listed is for only one skein.
