Announcement    Welcome to the ChemKnits Creations Store! While filming yarn dyeing videos for the ChemKnits Tutorials YouTube channel, I create more hand dyed yarn then I can ever knit with. I am so excited to offer many of these one of a kind, unique yarns for sale!

I use a wide variety of yarn bases and dyes. Please see the individual listing descriptions for the materials used to dye the yarn. All listings will also have the title of the video where the yarn was dyed so you can watch how the yarn was made! (Note: Some videos have not been published yet, but the publishing date will always be in the video description.)

All of my yarns are hand dyed with love in my smoke-free, cat-free, and dog friendly home. Please feel free to reach out with any questions!

Best,
Rebecca

About ChemKnitsCreations

Sales 2,370
On Etsy since 2018

Hi, I am Rebecca from ChemKnits, and I am a fiber artist and teacher from Massachusetts.

I started the blog ChemKnits while I was in graduate school, and since earning my PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Pharmacology I have continued to apply my scientific training to the fiber arts. I film knitting and yarn dyeing videos for the ChemKnits Tutorials YouTube Channel. In the fall of 2017, I started publishing at least two new dyeing videos a week, which meant that I was producing a LOT of hand dyed yarn. All of the yarn in this shop has been, or will be, featured in a dyeing video on YouTube.

Frequently asked questions
Do You Ship Internationally?

Yes! Currently many countries are available. As the buyer, you are responsible for all import duties, taxes, and clearance fees. I am not responsible for shipping delays due to customs.

If you country is not listed as an option send me a message and I will look if I can add it as an option.

Returns and Exchanges

Please contact me if there are any problems with your order. Due to the nature of the destash sales, inventory is limited so I might not be able to offer an exchange.

By EU Law, Buyers have the right to return certain products for any reason by contacting the seller within 14 days. If you are in the EU and are unsatisfied with your purchase, you must contact me within 14 days.

Care instructions

Please see the item description for care instructions. All yarns are pre-washed to remove excess dye, but small amounts of color bleeding might occur. For the first few washes, please wash separate and with like colors.

I personally recommend hand washing all hand knit items. Items dyed with food coloring and acid dyes should be washed on cold to prevent bleeding.

Avoid leaving food coloring dyed items in direct sunlight to dry as fading may occur.

Is Food Coloring Washfast?

YES! Yarn dyed with food coloring can go through the washing machine with laundry detergent with no observable color loss.

I have observed some fading when items have been in direct sunlight for months at a time (sitting on a windowsill), but have not observed any fading in winter accessories that I wear outside regularly or items exposed to indirect sunlight in my home.

Please avoid leaving anything dyed with food coloring in direct sunlight.

Lost or Missing Package?

Please send me a message if the tracking information stops being updated for your package. I will assist you with filing USPS Help and then Missing Mail Requests. https://www.usps.com/help/missing-mail.htm For international packages, the tracking can stall for weeks if it is held up at customs.

If we are unable to locate the package I will require your assistance to file an insurance claim - You will need to submit a Claim statement/affidavit form signed by the package recipient before I can process your refund. We must wait 20 days (domestic) or 40 days (international) before filing the claim. These wait times may change due to COVID or when shipping times lengthen due to the holidays.

Can I change my shipping Address after I've placed my order?

No, I can only ship to the address provided at checkout. However, I can cancel your order for a full refund and set up a custom listing so you can re-purchase the item with the correct address. Thank you for understanding!
