Announcement    I’m winding the shop down! June will be the last month that awkward will be updated, as things sit right now, and the clearance sale continues.

-Turnaround times are generally current—you’ll see an estimate on your receipt. If the estimate is off (sometimes I have made-to-order items that carry over a ready-made turnaround time) I’ll contact you as soon as possible with an update.
-Clearance sales are final, so please ask in advance if you have questions! My response times can be delayed, though, so please expect some variation—sometimes I answer same hour, and sometimes I’m away!
-I’m not able to consider a lot of custom work at the moment—my hands are pretty full with my new projects as they get closer to launch!

Thanks for your support with this project! It’s more than overstayed its planned lifetime, and I’m feeling some creative growing pains (and have, as many of you know, been feeling them for a while). If you enjoyed awkward, please stay tuned for what’s next!

awkward features hand knit cardigans, pullovers, sweaters, tops, hats, gloves, mitts, and other richly textured keywordy handknit goods. I’m adding new things to the updated Clearance Sale section—and brand new designs to the main shop sections, too!—as we move slowly through a big transitional phase (do you feel like it is harder to find non-factory goods lately? I feel like it is harder to find non-factory-made things lately).

If you’d like to be included on a possible future mailing list for updates on what’s next for awkward, please let me know! The contact button is up on the right hand side for now.)

No custom orders at this time—but please check back soon!

awkward offers handmade scarves, hats, sweaters, and other knit and woven garments and accessories. awkward also carries the mouse army mitten co. knitting patterns! awkward lives up to the name when I try to write ad copy for it.

Current shipping times are in line with the 1-4 business day estimate for ready-made things.

My other shop, currently on hiatus, is http://themousearmymittenco.etsy.com.

Hi there!

awkward is a small shop aiming to produce slow fashion clothing and accessories in sustainable batches, using a lot of wool and natural luxury fibers. This is true handmade and a very small operation within the larger world of Etsy—one set of hands makes basically everything you see.

Accepted payment methods

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 3 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 7 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
  • Items on sale
Returns and exchange details
Exchanges and returns are handled on a case-by-case basis, and subject to a 25% restocking fee. Hats, scarves, and .PDF patterns are not returnable, due to the nature of .PDFs and the nature of hats and scarves.

In the past, I’ve received requests for returns only very rarely, but return policies modeled on big box stores are inherently unsustainable. Did you know that many of the returns made to large retailers go straight to landfills? From a small shop perspective, returns are incredibly time- and resource-consuming,
Payment
awkward gladly accepts payment through Paypal - either via Paypal account or credit card. You can also checkout using the inbuilt Etsy credit card processing system.

Custom orders, when available, and made-to-order items are paid in full in advance. If you're interested in a larger custom project,
Shipping
Standard shipping is via USPS First Class mail. Most ready-to-ship items are normally shipped within 1-5 business days.

All customs tariffs, duties, fees, etc. are the responsibility of the buyer. These can be pretty shocking from my US-based perspective, so please be aware!
Additional policies and FAQs
awkward's goods are made in and shipped from a smoke-free environment. But allergy note: there is totally a dog. Such a good dog.

CUSTOM ORDER INFORMATION.
From time to time, I take on very limited numbers of custom projects. Accurate custom measurements are the absolute responsibility of the client, so please double check! Turn around times vary, but are generally at least 4-5 weeks. Summer's a great time to order winter woolens made just for you!
