The Beginning

I started Seedling Yarn as a stay at home mother of a 3 year old. Fortunate enough to have spent my days with Finn, I needed a creative outlet for me, and a visible sign for him that he needed to use his imagination and entertain himself. Whether at home, at a park or on a road trip, I'm most often within arms reach of my knitting - giving Finn some personal space to create and giving me a creative outlet.

I enjoy tweaking patterns, experimenting with different yarns, felting finished projects 'just to see,' and it all means a large accumulation of knitted items. There's only so many leggings, toques, slippers (and anything else you can knit) a family of three can use. So I took the leap and opened Seedling Yarn. It's a little of this and a little of that - all made by hand.

Inventory will change and expand. Ideas for new patterns and designs are what keep me up at night…in a good way.

Thank you for shopping, and come back often to see new listings.

    Hi. I've been knitting for years and have finally come to the realization that those close to me need not receive something knitted at every gift-giving opportunity. Seedling Yarn is my creative outlet. Thanks for shopping.

Returns and exchange details
I make every effort to exceed your expectations for the item you purchase. I spend hours designing and making these knits and want you to thoroughly enjoy them. If you receive an item and are not completely satisfied, let me know immediately and we'll figure something out. I do my best to accurately describe each item (sizing, colour, etc). Things happen, though, and I'm here to help.

If your package is damaged in the mail, please take a picture before opening and send it to me as soon as you can so that I can arrange an exchange for your damaged item.

You may exchange or refund unworn and undamaged items within 30 days of purchase. Shipping costs are non-refundable and the buyer is responsible to pay for, and arrange, shipping the item back. A refund will be issued, or the exchange will be made, once the original is received.

All custom orders are final sale.

Items are shipped after payment is received. All payments must be made within 7 days, after which time the order is cancelled.
I ship my items with Canada Post using Standard Air Mail. Shipments come with a tracking number, but are not insured.

Items shipped within Canada should arrive in 4-5 business days, to the United States expect arrival within 10 days. International shipping times vary by country, but should arrive no later than 12 days.

If speed is an issue, please ask for a more specific delivery date estimate or about upgrading shipping to a faster method. If you would like a tracking number or a delivery guarantee, let me know as I will upgrade your shipping and inform you of the extra charge.

International orders may incur duty, which is payable by the purchaser. Unfortunately, that is out of my control.

If you live in or around Ottawa and want to arrange a local pick up or delivery, let me know and I'll make a special listing for you without a shipping charge.

Please inquire about custom variations (such as in size or colour). I'm happy to accommodate.
