•US STANDARD SHIPPING - orders should be placed by DECEMBER 14
•US PRIORITY SHIPPING - orders should be placed by DECEMBER 16
•US EXPRESS SHIPPING - orders should be placed by DECEMBER 19
I will do my best to get your package to you by Christmas! I cannot control delivery delays by the courier therefore I cannot promise the arrival date of your order. The "order by" dates above reflect the USPS "ship by date" recommendations plus my processing time to make your order.
•INTERNATIONAL (Canada, UK, Australia, etc) - Needed to have been placed by NOVEMBER 30th; You can still order and I will get it out as soon as possible, but this is now is beyond the USPS' recommended ship by date with processing time! - Import VAT may apply!
------ PROCESSING TIME! ------
This is the length of time it takes for me to make your order. Sometimes I have items on hand and other times they are customized or needed to be made for you from scratch. You can find the processing time on each listing under the "Shipping & Policies" tab on the listing.
---------- SHIPPING REFUNDS ----------
Because Etsy does not calculate Priority and Express shipping based on location I have set these shipping upgrades to travel to CA. I will refund based on closer destinations! How much? this will give you an idea...
♦ NOTE: shipping upgrades do not speed up the processing time which is listed on the Shipping Tab

---------- HANDMADE IN DETROIT, MI ----------
♥X♥ All items are handmade in my home based shop in Detroit, Michigan
(no pets, no perfumes, no smoke, or other strong odors)
----------------------- SHIPPING ETA -----------------------
SHIPPING & ETA: Each scarf is individually packaged and comes with an info card (not gift wrapped, but in it's own sleeve). At times these scarves are made to order; however US residents can still expect to receive their scarf within 10 days of ordering. Orders shipped outside of the country will take longer as it will have to pass through customs; this can be anywhere from 10 business days to several months - usually it's just a couple of weeks though. Delivery confirmation is available to US residents only. All international orders are subject to import fees which are fees levied by your own country.
♦NOTE: During seasonal times like Christmas and times when the scarf has been featured there will most likely be a couple day delay for production.
----------------------- MATERIALS & CARE -----------------------
MATERIALS: I make every scarf with ONLY 100% quality anti-pill fleece with no horizontal seams across the scarf. The anti-pill fleece has a slight "brushed" look to it (cheaper fleece is smoother and has a "squeaky" feeling). Each boob has a small handmade pillow insert that I stuff with precisely weighed plush poly-fill and sew closed. I hand knit these nipples using 100% durable and washable super-wash wool and machine sew them securely to the scarf. All materials are new and a lot of precision goes into the making of each scarf.
DURABILITY: Who would think a scarf would need to be durable? I do! My own scarf has lasted through dozens of trail expeditions encountering thorns, rivers and mud. The nipples have been pulled and twisted and even bitten so hard that yarn fuzz was left in the biter's teeth. It's been washed over and over and has endured and looks still looks great!
• CARE: Machine wash cool, delicate. No Bleach. Tumble dry low and remove promptly. No need to iron. It will not shrink.
----------------------- MORE INFORMATION -----------------------
POLICIES: Please read my shop policies for just about everything else you care to know... or convo me... or email me at DetroitKnitter [!at] Gmail.com
CUSTOM FEES - When you import merchandise YOU are responsible for all fees including but not limited to VAT, duty, tax and processing fees. This is NOT included a shipping fee and every country has different import fees. Check it out first! The seller is NEVER responsible for import fees.
INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Orders with a destination outside the US are subject to customs inspection. It can take 10 business days to 3 months for packages to clear customs. The time it takes is unfortunately out of my control. The buyer is responsible for all fees associated with importing their order into their own country. I can suggest looking into fees that maybe levied by your own country prior to ordering so you are well informed.
----------------------- DONATIONS -----------------------
♥ I donate $2 to breast cancer research for every scarf sold ♥
A portion of the proceeds is donated toward breast cancer initiatives with the sale of every scarf. A minimum of $2 per scarf sold is donated.
WHERE DO I MAKE DONATIONS? The majority of donations are made to the Komen Detroit Race for the Cure; contributions are also made to Avon's Breast Cancer Walk through Missy Ward's Pink Purpose endeavors. Here are a couple current links showing donations made by me, Marlene Dysert / DetroitKnitter to breast cancer research through the sale of this scarf and other online pink ribbon related items. Links from previous years are no longer working/scrolling.
CAN I HAVE THE DONATION MADE IN THE NAME OF MY TEAM OR EVENT? Of course! Just provide me with a link and/or team/individual name - if the donation amount does not meet a minimum requirement, the donation will go to the general "pot" for donation to Komen's RTC Detroit. Donations to Detroit's RTC are made in December and just prior to the race in the spring.
--------------------- BUT WHY? ---------------------
I make and sell this scarf because it's a funny scarf. The idea came about in an interesting yet somewhat typical outing with my hashing friends and is based on a comment someone made; I laughed so hard I just had to develop a "boob scarf". Every year I raise hundreds of dollars, volunteer, and participate in events that benefit breast cancer research. I'm donating a portion of the proceeds of this scarf because I want to. I am not affiliated with Karmanos, Susan G Komen, Race for the Cure or any other cancer related or fund-raising organization and am certainly not just saying I donate or use it as a marketing ploy. Some people like to know a few bucks are going to a good cause, so there you have it. Click a donation link above and see for yourself or better yet order a scarf and I'll make the donation to your favorite breast cancer 501(c)(c) organization providing there is not a minimum donation amount for that charity.
----------------------- COPYING -----------------------
