It arrived safeANDsound, and instead of using it like it was intended, as a backdrop for the Gandhi party, two dogs are threatening to tear it apart as they play...eek! Lovely, bright color / thankyou!

Us green lil' chicks at Rip Tie Knits want you to be tickled pink with any of the unique, one-of-a-kind items we make.

Please note the handmade nature of each and every one of our unique offerings:

- we source unloved clothing and rip, tie and roll it into skeins of our RipTie 'yarn'

- the rip/tie/roll process is all done completely by hand, using only 100% recycled fabrics

- no two skeins of our RipTie are the same, which makes each project completely unique

- we knit all of our projects by hand, sans pattern, so - again - each one is completely one-of-a-kind... OOAK (we just like saying that) :)

- when we say handmade, we totally mean it... every project is made by hand by us from start-to-finish... heck, even the cute little logo pins we include with each project are made in-house by us :)

- all projects are made with lotsa love in a completely smoke-free environment

- we are a pet-friendly environment (just a couple goofy dogs that like to check out what we're up to from time to time)... just a heads up :)

Please note that all images, project offerings and processes are © RipTieKnits, all rights reserved... so please, no swiping of our images or our groovy ideas... it's fundamentally wrong on so many levels, plus it makes us really unhappy :( ... and it's a bad idea to make fabric ninjas unhappy!

Us green lil' chicks want you to be uber happy with anything you purchase from us... communication is key, so please take the time to read the scoop:

- While we do our best to provide all the info you need in our project listings, we do request that any questions about our projects to be sent to us PRIOR to buying... just convo us directly, or drop us an email at info [at] riptieknits [dot] com with all your questions, and we'll promptly get back to you.

Again, sorry for the caps, but we gotta make sure you see it...


We're not being mean, we just feel that we do our best to be open, honest and clear in our listings, and would rather spend time crafting than dealing with shuffling refund paperwork.

But if, for some reason, you feel an exchange or refund is warranted in your specific situation, please convo or email us ... be C*L*E*A*R in your description as to your reasons, and we will do our best to work with you so everyone is happy


Communication is the key to everyone being happy... and we like happy!
