Announcement   **WINTER WEATHER ANNOUNCEMENT: I do my best to ship within 1 business day, however there may be delays due to extreme winter weather conditions that prevent me from being able to get to the post office daily.

Welcome to my shop! I hope you will please 'favorite' my shop so you can quickly come back to see what new things I've added in the future. Take a look around, I've got yarn as well as crochet tools. Any questions -don't hesitate to ask. Thank you so much for stopping by!

An FYI about COMBINED SHIPPING...I have my etsy settings set in such a way that it will automatically combine shipping based on the total weight and destination of each order. So don't let the cost listed for shipping just one item scare you...add more items to the cart and you will see the combined shipping rate automatically figured for you. With that said, sometimes the calculator goes a little wonkers with splitting the order in to multiple smaller packages. in this case it can come up with a really high total in a few cases. I don't check every one, because in some cases it actually costs me more then it estimated for smaller orders, but if I notice a really odd shipping configuration I will review it after shipping and issue a refund for overcharges. I can always review the shipment upon your request before you order too. I just need to know how many of what yarn to be shipped to what zip code, and what the shopping cart is showing you as an estimate.

Thank You!

About

"My name is Anna, and I'm Addicted to Yarn"

I love yarn. I can't visit a store that carries yarn without stopping in that department to pet the yarn. Yes, I pet the yarn. I'm drawn to yarn by the colors but then I've got to to touch every skein, cake or hank that I see. I then have to purchase at least some of it, usually way more then I need for my next project. This probably makes me a bit of a yarn hoarder. But my yarn is not hid away in a pile somewhere, I have each one bagged in clear poly bags and stacked neatly on an endless number of shelves taking up every inch of wall space in my craft room, displayed so that I can see them and be inspired.

I don't really just hoard the yarn, I use it too. I have at least 5 WIP's (works in progress) going at any given moment. I make lots of personal items for myself and gifts for my grandchildren and friends, and in between every personal item I make, I also make one child's blanket that I donate to a local organization that works with abused & neglected children in trauma. For this reason, when I see pretty yarn that would make a nice child's blanket I tend to buy a ton of it. I can't possibly use all of the yarn I buy because I don't have that much lifetime left, ha ha, but I can't seem to stop myself.

So.....I opened this Etsy shop to help me move some of the excess yarn that I couldn't seem to stop myself from buying when I fall in love with it. I enjoyed that experience so much that I became an official yarn retailer. I now stock yarns from many different manufacturers and even crochet hooks and supplies. So please shop around and know that 90% of the yarn that I have available for sale was once a yarn that inspired me to make a blanket for a child in need of a little kindness from a stranger.

    I've been crocheting for almost 50 years. I crochet as a form of relaxation, and even learned to do what I call 'Crochet Meditation'. Some might say its impossible to crochet and meditate, but I have managed to do it. I'm also addicted to yarn. ;-)

    I'm a huge Furls Crochet fan, because they practically changed my life with their crochet hooks that allowed my arthritic hands to crochet again. For this reason I felt compelled to become a Furls retailer so I could share my love of their products with crocheters who suffer from arthritis like me.

Frequently asked questions
Do you combine shipping?

YES! I have our shipping settings set in such a way that system will use the actual weight of the item(s) as packaged to figure the actual shipping cost to your zip for every item in my shop. So as you add things to your cart the estimated shipping will update to show you the best rate possible...in part thanks to Etsy's wonderful commercial discounts through their shipping software. So load up knowing you will get the best rates available!

How long after I pay for my order before you ship it?

All orders, other then custom made items, are shipped within 1 business day [Mon-Fri not including holidays]. I am located in Colorado, so during the snowy season there is a chance I wont make it through the snow to the post office because the road is impassable. That's rare, but it can happen.

Are your yarn colorways discontinued by the manufacture?

Often they are, simply because I tend to buy way too much when I find a new color I want to make something with and also because manufactures change colorways by the season. So if you fell in love with a particular colorway that is no longer available, or you ran short on your project...I am your perfect source to get enough to finish your next project.

If I buy a yarn then it turns out I don't like the color once its delivered, can I return it?

I understand that this will happen once in a while. I try to get pictures in the appropriate light so you can see the true colors, and some self-striping yarns look a little different from skein/cake to skein/cake, or your monitor shows a color different then it really is. So, if that happens, you can contact me within 3 days of delivery to request to return it. I will provide you with return instructions. Once it is received in its original condition (within 7 days) I will refund your purchase price, (not including shipping fee's). Please be sure to keep the yarn bagged so it does not pick up any strong scents from your home that might make it un-sellable when returned.

I am sensitive to smells, and pets, how are your yarns stored?

Every single skein, cake or hank of yarn is stored in a clear bag so it will not pick up any dust, dirt, or scents from my home. So an smell would be whatever came the manufacturer. All of my yarn lives in a smoke-free home, in a pet-free environment.

Do you ship outside of the US?

At this time I am shipping internationally on a case by case basis because the most recent orders for outside the US ended up costing me way more then Etsy was collecting to cover the costs. So until Etsy fixes the international shipping calculator issue I will only process international orders manually so I can calculate the shipping costs myself. Message me if you wish to be approved for international shipments.
