Yarn Tamer | Dye Wrangler
Miss Click Clack first dyed yarn to feed a sock yarn obsession. Dyeing was fast, and it was fun. But when she did the math and discovered that it would take 712 years to knit her stash she went retail.
Miss Click Clack's favourite fibre is wool.
Miss Click Clack's DK bases are named after the places she explored on a red dragster bike wearing DK knits as a little kid. Her sock yarns are named after inner city precincts she enjoys as a big kid.
This shop is a stellina-free zone.
Note that I have a no refund policy.
CUSTOM ORDERS ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED.
Accepted payment methods
Reserved Listings are easy. If you would like an item held for you please contact me. I will hold yarn for 48 hours.
I prefer payment within 48 hours of your Reserved Listing becoming available to you:)
CUSTOMS AND TAXES
International customers are responsible for import or other taxes/charges that might apply to purchases. Customs documentation will accurately list parcel contents and value.
$8.25 flat-rate shipping. Yes, I combine orders. LEAVE A COMMENT in your order to that effect and I will delay shipping until you have completed shopping.
I do not have flatrate shipping to international destinations. International customers pay up to the full shipping cost. If Etsy overcharges you I will refund the difference. Generally 3-4 skeins will ship at the same price as one, greater than 4 or 5 move into a higher cost bracket.
International orders ship with Australia Post Economy Air Mail with Signature on Delivery.
Convo me for a quote if your country is not listed. I ship worldwide.
EXPRESS POST and/or INSURANCE
Convo me PRIOR to purchasing.
I'm sorry, but you cannot come to my home to collect your yarn, nor will I agree to meet you elsewhere to transact. Please don't ask.
Refunds and Exchanges
I do not refund if you change your mind. Please examine photographs and descriptions carefully. You can also ask me to put a listing on hold while you consider your needs. I am also happy to photograph combinations of skeins for you to appraise for multi-coloured projects. Don't be shy - I do this often!
If I send you the wrong item I will make reparation at no cost to you.
Please contact me before returning yarn.
Additional policies and FAQs
Several images are provided. Please examine the images carefully, and read the description. I do not refund if you change your mind, or if pertinent information about the listing was present in the description and you did not read it. Colours may vary from screen to screen. Check on another screen if unsure.
I often use a Pantone Colour Guide to assist characterisation of the colours. Your own internet search of the Pantone colour name may also assist your appraisal of the colours in the images.
I group well-matched skeins from a single dyeing event in the one listing. Alternating skeins every row or two is always recommended, as is buying sufficient yarn for your garment from the one batch.
CUSTOM DYEING IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. You can, however, make a colourway request in the Miss Click Clack Ravelry group. Established colourways only. I do not offer a colour matching service.
Please do not request Custom Dyeing if you do not have funds available to complete the transaction within 48 hours of your order being ready to ship. Please be precise when requesting custom dyeing - I need to know the colourway, the base, the number of skeins, and a timeframe. Note that I do not offer all colourways on all bases. Check previous Etsy sales or Ravelry stash/project pages for availability.
RANDOM SPOTS and POOLING
Buyers should be aware of the vagaries of hand-dyed yarn - speckles or spots of colour, uneven dye distribution, and a propensity for colours to pool or flash once knitted if colour repeats are long, or non-random in distribution.
KNOTS, SPLICES, SKEINS
If I see a knot I will mention it in the description. I don't see all knots. Fenwick Street Flashmerino, a soft, extrafine merino blend, is my most knot-prone base. I tolerate two knots per skein.
I don't always detect splices. Your skein may have splices.
I weigh all skeins, and the weight of each skein varies. Please ensure that you choose a skein of sufficient meterage to suit your needs. When a batch of skeins is listed the weight of the lightest skein goes into the description. You may receive a skein heavier than that described :)
I do not re-skein. This allows you to appraise a skein for its propensity to flash/pool. Should a skein be re-skeined it will be noted in the description.
CARE OF YOUR GARMENT
My dyes may not perform to 'superwash' conditions. Garments made from Miss Click Clack hand-dyed yarn should be hand-washed separately in cold water using a gentle wash agent. Some water tinting may occur.
I have a smoke-free, pet-friendly home.
I do not have wholesale pricing. The prices listed here are the prices for all purchases irrespective of quantity.
I rarely enter into collaborations with designers. Designers are, however, welcome to purchase from the shop.
PRIZES FOR YOUR COMPETITION
I offer generous prizes to participants in Miss Click Clack KALs, so am disinclined generally to donate yarn to the prize pool of an external KAL.
