Things you should know
Hand Dyed Yarns: 98% of the yarns we carry are hand dyed. We will do our best to ensure that you receive the same dye lot if one is listed on the yarn label. Variations will naturally exist, even within the same dye lot, for hand dyed yarns. Please alternate between 2-3 skeins for optimal color blending. We recommend that you order at least one more skein than you think you need for a project. We cannot guarantee that a particular color/base/dye lot will be in stock if you run out. We cannot guarantee exact color matches between in-stock and pre-ordered yarns.
Yarn Care: We recommend that you hand-wash all finished projects regardless of yarn label. We sale Soakwash for this purpose, but any soap designed for hand-knits will do. (Place item(s) in cool water with about a cap full of Soak distributed evenly. Let sit for 15-20min. Carefully remove item(s), pressing out water into a towel. Then lay flat to dry. Do not allow wet items to hang. The weight of the water will stretch them out. If you choose to machine wash Super-wash yarns, do so on hand-wash/gentle cycle, cold water, in a lingerie bag, re-shape and lay flat to dry. You've put a lot of work into your projects. Treat them with the respect they deserve.
Rewards Program: Our rewards program was initiated on April 2, 2018. In order to earn points you must sign up for the program and be signed into your account for online purchases. For in store purchases, inform us at time of checkout that you are part of the rewards program. Points do not accrue retroactively, and refunds will be subtracted from earned points.
Rescheduling: Currently we allow students to reschedule lessons missed due to conflicts, holidays, emergencies, etc. If you need to reschedule/postpone a lesson, call and or/email us ahead of time. Occasionally classes may need to be rescheduled by the instructor. If this is the case, you will be notified.
Receipts: We care about the environment. Store receipts are sent by email or text only. We do not print paper receipts.
Gift Cards: Gift cards are sent digitally, by email only, to the email address of your choosing, and do not include a name. They can then be printed if you desire. The QR code from your gift card can be scanned from your smart phone so that printing is unnecessary.
Special orders/Pre-orders: Check our Bulk Discount page for the list of companies that we make special orders from. Though most special orders are received within 3 weeks, this time frame is approximate and not a guarantee. Dyer schedules and shipping times will vary. Order ahead of schedule and give yourself enough leeway for delays. You will be notified the day your yarn arrives. Note: We cannot guarantee exact color matches between in-stock and pre-ordered yarns. Orders that include both pre-order and in-stock items will ship all together when the pre-order item is ready. If you’d like in-stock items sooner, please place a separate order, or notify us by email. We will not issue refunds on special orders/pre-orders unless we do not receive the yarn.
