Shop policies

Last updated on February 8, 2011
My top priority is not only creating beautiful yarn for you, but also to wrap it beautifully and send it off to reach you at the soonest opportunity.

It is advisable to buy as much yarn as you will need for a project as I may not be able to exactly match what you already have if you run out due to the nature of hand dyeing.

I use professional dyes for colour fastness and light fastness and have had many satisfied customers over the years.

I don't have a bricks and mortar shop but do attend UK knitting shows throughout the year where you can come and squish the yarn in person.

Accepted payment methods

I take PayPal.

For custom orders, I dye up the yarn, send you photos of it for your approval and if you're happy with the photos, I then mark it as reserved and list it here in the shop for you to buy at your convenience.
I send packages to North America, Europe and Australasia by airmail which take around 5 working days. UK parcels are posted first class and usually take 1-2 days. Yarn is shipped within 48 hours on weekdays and Saturdays.

For overseas purchases, please note that you are responsible for any customs due on any packets - it hasn't happened yet in all the packages of yarn I send all over the world, but you never know.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please note also that colours can vary between monitors - I endeavour to photograph the colours of the yarn as accurately as possible and will add a note to my description if I feel there is a significant variation.

I am happy for anyone to use these photos for their own purposes eg Ravelry stash, blog... as long as it's made clear that it's Skein Queen yarn.
