Description

We believe that with all the time you take to crochet something by hand, you should really love the yarns you choose!

We found this yarn when looking for alternatives for our Missus Otis Mitts pattern (https://www.etsy.com/listing/170026155/missus-otis-fingerless-mittsgloves?). Our curse is longing for the finer things in life, but not wanting to pay for them (Crochet Kitten was founded by a stay-at-home mom, after all; budget is king in our house).

Forest Hills is a dream blend--51% silk and 49% merino wool--but we defy you to find a better price for this fiber combo. Each ball contains a generous 785 yards (717.5 meters), which is almost twice as much as most fingering weight wools.

Please note that this is NOT machine washable; hand wash only.

Made in China.

IS THIS YARN FAIR TRADE? I personally spoke with a representative from Cascade Yarns to find out the answer to this question. Cascade Yarns is a family owned business founded in the 1980s with the mission to provide quality yarns at a fair price, but these fair prices do not come at the expense of the quality of life for the workers who make them. Cascade works with small, family-owned factories around the world and has personally visited these factories to ensure both fair working conditions and quality yarn standards. Furthermore, by purchasing from my Etsy shop, your dollars will help to support my own family here in the US.

I offer FREE SHIPPING on orders over $60. Use coupon code FREESHIP60.

This is great Christmas knitting yarn - stockings, ornaments, etc. It is generally hard to find around the months leading to Christmas so if you are interested, get it while it is available. I like Etsy sellers and use them when possible. This seller did a great job. There was a shipping problem which they told me about promptly and did not charge me shipping. I can't ask for more.

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
HANDMADE ORDERS: A 50% non-refundable deposit is required before work begins. This deposit goes toward covering the cost of my materials. The remaining balance must be paid before the finished item ships. (See also my Refund Policy.)

Shipping policies

I offer FREE SHIPPING on orders over $60. Use coupon code FREESHIP60.

SHIPPING TIMES
My handling time is 1-3 business days (though I strive for 1 day). For transit time, USPS has handy interactive maps for you to determine how long your package will take to arrive at your address.

For regular shipping, use this map and code 201 as the originating point: https://ribbs.usps.gov/modernservicestandards/ssmaps/find_map.cfm

For Priority shipping, use this map and code 20110:
https://www.usps.com/priority-mail/map/

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING
I regret that I can no longer offer international shipping due to the fact that tracking becomes questionable after the package leaves the US border and I cannot guarantee that your package will arrive safely.

RUSH ORDERS
If time is of the essence, please let me know so I can ensure speediness. I aim to get orders out the next business day, but I work from home between homeschooling my daughter, so occasionally an order gets delayed a day or two if life gets in the way and I don't know a rush is needed. If you get in touch with me and place your order before noon Eastern time, I can usually get your order in the mail for you the same day.

Use the links to the maps above to determine transit time to your address and add one day to it (unless you've received confirmation from me that I will ship your package the same day). This is the fastest I can get your package to you. If you happen to live in the DC or Baltimore Metros, shipping time with Priority Mail is 1 day.

LOST PACKAGES
For your convenience, I offer both regular (First Class) and Priority Mail shipping options. Priority Mail includes up to $100 of insurance for free, in case your item gets lost in the mail. If you are concerned about your item getting lost, please select Priority Mail. I will not be held responsible for items lost in the mail when shipped with the First Class option; choose First Class shipping at your own risk.

Kits and handmade items are sent via Priority Mail by default.

PATTERN SUPPORT:
If you are having trouble following any of my patterns, please contact me for support. I'm happy to provide free tech support for all of my patterns.

GIFT ORDERS:
If your order is a gift to be shipped directly to the giftee, please convo me with this information so I don't include an invoice with the order. Gift wrapping is also available for free upon request. I will include a gift tag with a short message from you.

ALLERGIES:
My home studio is also home to cats, dogs, and various small animals.

I do my best to keep the exposure to a minimum.
