  • When buying hand dyed yarn, it is advisable to buy as much yarn as you will need for a project as I may not repeat the colourway you have chosen and even if I do, new batches could vary considerably from the original due to the nature of hand dyeing. If working from more than one skein of hand dyed yarn, it is also advisable to work alternate rows from two skeins to ensure an even blending of colours. Very occasionally, yarn that contains a large percentage of turquoise can leave small amounts dye residue on your hands during use due to the chemical composition of that particular colour. Please be assured that the dye is fixed, but it would be advisable to wash the item separately the first couple of times.
  • Unfortunately, I am unable to accept custom orders.
  • Please note that colours can vary between monitors - I endeavour to photograph the colours of the yarn as accurately as possible and will add a note to my description if I feel there is a significant variation. Photos are taken in daylight with no flash.
  • When purchasing club subscriptions or other yarn such as advent calendars where the colourway is not revealed at the time of purchase, no refunds will be offered if you don't like the colour.
  • Yarn lengths are approximate and are sold by the weight.
  • I endeavour to ensure the goods sent out are in perfect condition (unless otherwise stated, in which case, a discount will be offered at time of purchase) but should the goods be damaged or faulty, please return them in an unused condition within 14 days for a replacement or refund. Please note that you will be responsible for the costs of postage and packaging and it is advisable to obtain a proof of posting.
