I aim to represent yarn colours as accurately as possible, though product listings may vary in appearance on different devices. Usually a quick Google or Ravelry search provides a wide representation of any particular colourway.

Feel free to contact me directly, if you have any questions or would like me to take a picture of the yarn before shipping.
Many of the items in my shop are listed with reasonable pricing in mind. Additional discounts are sometimes available during seasonal sales and via customer coupons.

If you have questions about a listing price, please inquire BEFORE making a purchase from the shop. As a general rule, discounts will not be applied after the transaction is completed.
All orders are carefully inspected before shipping. If there is damage or defect with your product(s), please contact me within 7 days of receiving your package. My goal is that you are satisfied with your order :)
Local customers may use coupon code FREEPICKUP at checkout. Arrangements can be made to pick up an order directly or have it delivered within a reasonable distance from my location.

If a pickup/drop-off is difficult to arrange due to scheduling conflicts or distance, fast shipping options are available, though this will require a basic shipping fee. Local customers are always welcome to contact me before purchase to inquire about the best method of delivery.
Certainly! I will wind up to two hanks of yarn free of charge before shipping. The charge for winding additional hanks is $1.75 (CA) each.

Please contact me if you would like more information about this service.
Delivery time always depends on the package destination and other factors like customs processing. I cannot guarantee a specific delivery window because of that variability. However, most orders arrive within 1-2 weeks, and delivery issues are rare.

Premium shipping options for US customers are available with tracking and a delivery estimate. I do not guarantee full refunds or re-shipments for untracked US parcels, but contact me if your package has not arrived.

All CANADIAN packages have tracked shipping. Refunds and re-shipments will only be considered after 30 days from the original shipment for Canadian orders. If your package seems to be taking unusually long to arrive, please contact me and I will look into it.
Some value listings and discounted yarns may have a higher shipping rate. I try to keep shipping down by sharing the cost with the buyer. This means that I take a portion of the profit from regular priced yarns to cover the shipping fee. For discounted and clearance items, there is often no profit available to cover shipping, which is why the shipping amount may be higher.

However, if you purchase a discounted yarn along with a REGULAR priced listing, I will provide you with the lower rate and immediately refund the difference.
