About SmashKnitsCo

Sales 2,092
On Etsy since 2009

Keeping it colourful one skein at a time.

Introduced at a young age to the timeless handicrafts of knitting, sewing & crochet by my Mum and both of my Grandmas, I haven't looked back since! My love affair with creating as much as possible grows daily. The handmade community is an incredible one and I feel so blessed to be in the company of other makers who share with, inspire, and support one another.

Smash Knits had its humble beginning making warm accessories to gift to friends & family. A decade after opening shop and knitting up a storm for orders & markets, the toll marathon production knitting was taking on my body dictated I change directions.

In 2018 I shifted gears and began offering handdyed wool, as well as notions & supplies. This new chapter has reignited my passion for making, and allowed me to indulge in other means of crafting while still satisfying my need to work with yarn. It’s also been such a pleasure to truly embrace the art of “slow stitching”.

In 2021, my partner Norm came on board as we expanded. We are looking forward to what the future holds in store for Smash Knits!

Shipping
<<HAND DYED YARN >>

- Single or two skeins: for domestic purchases, these will be shipped unwound/unskeined and in a vacuumed sealed package. In this manner I am able to ship at a lesser cost to you (Lettermail with NO tracking). Orders to the USA and elsewhere ship via UNTRACKED Small Packet Air USA or International.

- Three or more skeins: Yarn will be shipped in a normal skein, using either tracked package within Canada, and UNTRACKED Small Packet to USA. Upgrades to Expedited/Tracked Packet are available for purchase at the buyer’s expense.

- International: Yarn will ship via UNTRACKED Small Packet Overseas.

<<PROJECT BAGS AND NOTIONS >>
These items will ship via Lettermail where applicable in Canada, otherwise they will ship via parcel.
For the USA and International, these items will ship via UNTRACKED Small Packet Air. Tracking upgrades are available at the buyer’s expense.


<< ESTIMATED SHIPPING TIMES >> (in transit):
Canada: 4-8 business days
United States: 8-12 business days
Europe: 5-15 business days
Australia, New Zealand and Oceania: 5-15 business days

I try my best to maintain shipping estimates, but cannot guarantee them unless a shipping upgrade with a guaranteed shipping timeline is purchased. Delivery will vary depending on your local post service, annual holidays, environmental interruptions, etc. As of March 2020 and the COVID-19 pandemic, Canada Post has suspended its guaranteed delivery standards and mail delivery in general is taking much longer.


<< CUSTOMS & IMPORT TAXES >>
Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply.


<< LOST / STOLEN / DELAYED
PACKAGES >>
Smash Knits is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged packages, or errors made by the postal system. Smash Knits is also not responsible for delays due to customs. Items are shipped to the address listed on your Etsy account, unless otherwise provided via message to seller.
