Twice As Nice Designs is a small, woman owned company based in Iowa that specializes in natural yarns and fibers that we hand dye for doll makers and all crafters. Ask us about custom dying- we love creating new options for customers!
Various hand dyed natural yarns perfect for doll making, art quilts and other fiber arts. Wool, cotton and mohair with a minimal amount of man made fibers for binding.
The best to use for Santas, Grannies and sooooo much more! Our locally sourced wool and mohair is hand sorted and hand washed so please pardon the occasional bits of 'barnyard'! We will gladly custom dyed these fibers for your project.
Doll patterns that have stood the test of time! Original from the 1990's when Twice As Nice Designs was first developed, these primitive patterns can be adapted to suit your tastes.
Fun colors of our 'regular' yarns plus fun and flashy products for fun and flashy dolls! Here you'll also find doll making supplies such as needles and linen thread.
We've been known to mess up a dye batch or hang on to old product too long. This is where you score! Discontinued yarn, Santa Beard's Seconds and 'Oops' from the dye pot.
If you are a shop that would like to carry our products or if you're a crafter who sells your creations commercially, here is the information you need.
"Is this heaven? No, it's Iowa. " Cliche'? Absolutely. True? You know it! Twice As Nice Designs began in 1992 in small town Iowa and continues to this day amidst the Covered Bridges of Madison County, rolling farm fields AND the Field of Dreams. Winterset, IA, is 35 miles southwest of the capital city of Des Moines and boasts a vibrant square filled with eclectic shops of all types. We are located in the local yarn shop, Heartland Fiber Co, on the west side of the square.
We are moms and grandmas who love fiber crafts, just like you! Each package of our yarn and fiber is hand washed, dyed and wound right here in Winterset. We will work with you to find the perfect natural fiber for your project whether by custom dying or working with you on quantity. By purchasing through us versus a big box store you are supporting small town families and business. Thank you!
