About IdleHourCrafts

Sales 34
On Etsy since 2015

Idle hours are crafting hours.

I love playing with yarns and colour and creating one of a kind colourways that are perfect for knitting or crocheting accessories, amigurumi and other small projects.

If you like any of the yarn I dye, all the better - maybe treat yourself to one and make something lovely with it, something that makes you happy.

Frequently asked questions
Estimated Shipping Times

I aim to have items posted within 3-4 working days of an order being placed and I typically post things on Mondays and Fridays.

Estimated shipping times listed are based on An Post's (Irish post service) estimated delivery times for standard post and do not take into account potential customs delays. Expected delivery times listed on the website for Standard Post are as follows:
- To Ireland: next working day
- UK: 2-3 working days
- EU: 3-5 working days
- US: +7 working days
- Rest of the world: + 9 working days

Digital Downloads - Terms of Use

My printables are available for personal use only. Buying a file does not transfer copyright and it doesn't make it available for reproduction, reselling, bundling with other products or making publicly available in any kind of way.

Shipping Upgrades

To keep the cost of shipping down I don't offer upgrades but if this is something you are interested in, don't hesitate to contact me before you complete your order and I'll see what can be done.
Registered Post (online tracking) can be arranged for an extra cost ranging between €6-17 depending on the size and weight of the package.

Purchasing Multiple Items?

Due to it being difficult to price the cost of shipping of multiple items here on Etsy (as postage depends on the size and weight of the items combined) chances are the postage cost you will get shown will be too much.
If you do buy multiple items and are overcharged on shipping, I will refund the extra charge.
If you want to buy several items but are unsure of the price of shipping, feel free to message me first and I will provide you with a more accurate shipping cost.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Keep in mind that if you are buying an item as a gift, gift wrapping of an item is something I am not offering at the moment.

As I am a huge advocate of sending 'happy mail', I do my best to keep the packing of my items fun and colourful while at the same time keeping the cost of sending mail as cheap as I can. For this, I typically don't use padded envelopes unless I have to as they increase the postage quite a bit.
If you have any questions about this, don't hesitate to ask!
