Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

-We recommend dry cleaning. You can hand wash it, but you have to be very careful. Exposure to heat and agitation will cause wool fibers to felt. Hand wash in cold water and lay flat to dry. You might still lose some softness from hand washing, even in cold water (not considerable), but it will shed less. If you are not sure you can make a small swatch and wash it and see if you like the result before you wash the entire garment. We also find that dry cleaning helps to reduce the amount of shedding.

- For garments such as jackets and scarves we recommend to always store them folded instead of hanging them to prevent stretching.

Shipping

Orders can take 1-3 business days to pack (not including weekends and holidays).

Once it ships, standard shipping takes:

2 - 5 business days for domestic orders

2-4 Business Days for International (DHL Express) - all countries except for Russia and some other exceptions **

3-5 days USPS Express for Russia.

Sometimes there are delays because of customs for international orders.

We ship domestic orders via FedEx and require a signature upon delivery. Please email us at orders@loopymango.com if you would like to waive this requirement. Please note that we are not responsible for lost or stolen packages once this has been waived.

International Shipping

Orders are shipped from Key Largo, FL

We ship international orders with DHL (2-4 days). However, in some rare cases certain addresses (mostly in Australia) are considered to be "remote" by DHL and will incur an additional $30 shipping charge. Unfortunately we don't know until we start processing your order whether your address is considered remote or not. If it is, we will contact you and you will have an option either to pay an extra $30 charge for DHL or we can ship your order at no extra charge with regular post, USPS Priority. USPS Priority takes 5-7 days compared to 2-4 days with DHL.

- International shipping charge does not include any local duties or taxes

How many skeins do I need to make the size blanket I want?

One skein will make 28'' x 40'' (71 cm x 101 cm) so that's 28 X 40 = 1120 square inches (71 X 101 = 7171 square cm). So, if you want to make, for example, 36'' x 48'' blanket you need to multiply 36 by 48 which gives you 1728 and divide that number by 1120, so 1.5 skeins!

Please note - these measurements come from a blanket made with size 50 needles with a 2x2 rib stitch. You will need to adjust the equation for a different needle size and design.
