About

The Fawn & The Fox

Michael and Lara started this shop together.
They met in art school, and got married 3 years later. Now, they both make things for the shop that reflect their unique interests, with quite a bit of overlap. Michael hand presses all of the tree stump prints. Each one is made slightly different. About a year ago, they discovered this process could be done with fabric paint, and so the pine tree project bags and tote bags were born.
The items and feel of The Fawn & The Fox are constantly evolving. New items are always being added and designed. The creative process is such a large part of Lara and Michael's lives, and they hope to be doing this for years to come.

Payment
We accept payment through Paypal, and direct checkout.
We also accept Etsy gift cards.

We do not accept cancellations on orders.

If you purchased the wrong item by mistake, you may exchange it for the correct item, as long as it is available for purchase in the shop.
It is a good idea to purchase the correct item as soon as you realize the mistake so it does not sell out. We will then refund you for the original purchase if you send us a message and let us know.

If you exchange an item, please be aware that the item(s) from your original order will be put back into the shop and be available for purchase immediately.

If you are using a coupon code, it must be applied at the time of checkout. We will not refund you later on if you forgot to use your coupon code.
Shipping
We ship from Canada, worldwide. All packages sent within Canada will come with a tracking number.

We do not send items outside of Canada with a tracking number. Often, this can double or triple the cost of shipping. If you would like a tracking number, we will absolutely accommodate you. Simply message us either before placing your order, or within 24 hours of placing your order (before order has shipped) and we will adjust the cost of shipping to include tracking.
Please note that international orders (not including those to the U.S.) may take up to 6 weeks to arrive in some cases. To date, we have never had a lost package, so we ask that you please be patient, as lost packages are rare.
Should your order get lost in the mail, please let us know and we will contact Canada Post right away to resolve the issue. (Please be aware that this process may take up to several weeks.)
We will not consider a package lost until 6 weeks (35 business days) has passed.

If you place multiple separate orders and you would like them to ship together, we will absolutely accommodate you, but you must message us within ONE hour of placing the second (and all subsequent) order(s) to let us know. If you do not message us, we may not notice and ship your orders separately. Should this happen, you will not be refunded for the excess shipping, and your items may ship and arrive on different dates.
If you let us know you have placed multiple orders, we will happily ship them together and refund you for the excess shipping you have paid (if the overage is $5 CAD+).

We are not responsible for customs fees in the case of international orders. We will not mark packages as "gift", or at a lesser value to avoid these fees. It is against the law to do this.
In some cases, customs may hold packages, causing a delay in their delivery.

We will refund shipping overages of $5 CAD or more.

All items will ship within 5 business days of the order being placed, unless stated otherwise.
This does not apply to made to order items, custom orders, or wholesale orders. Shipping times for these types of orders will vary, and information regarding each case will be included in the item description.
Refunds and Exchanges
If there is a problem with your order, please don't hesitate to contact us. We will do everything we can to resolve the issue.
If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, please contact us right away (within 7 days of receiving it). You may return it, in its original condition within 14 days of receiving it.
We will not send out your refund until we have received the item, and confirmed it is undamaged/ unused.
Yarn that has been caked or wound is not refundable. We will only issue a refund for items that are resellable.

Shipping charges will not be refunded, and the buyer is responsible for the return postage on the item.

We do not accept refunds on custom orders or wholesale orders.

Items purchased at markets, craft fairs, etc. are non refundable.
Additional policies and FAQs
All items are made in a smoke free, cat friendly home.
If you have an extreme allergy to cats, you may want to reconsider purchasing from our shop.
Shop items are kept in airtight containers and cat-free areas. We also do our best to check all items for odd cat hair before shipping. On occasion, you may receive an item with a cat hair on it. We deeply apologize for this. It is extremely difficult to be sure this does not happen 100% of the time.

I do my best to accurately represent the colours of all products. However, different monitors will show colour differently. Please take this into account while shopping. I lightly retouch my photos to better display the colour and texture of my products.

All yarn is hand dyed by us. We dye in small batches, and therefore there are no dye lots. There will be some variation in colour between skeins, as that is the nature of hand dyed yarn. No two skeins will be exactly alike.
If you are using our yarn for a larger project, alternate skeins to camouflage any colour differences between skeins.
Be sure to purchase all the yarn needed for a project at one time.

We do our best to fully rinse out excess dye after dyeing. However, some colour bleeding the first time you wash your project is common. We recommend washing in cold water, and separately from all other items. This is especially crucial for the first wash, as this is when colour is most likely to bleed.

Project bags may vary slightly in size from the listed dimensions.

As of 2016, we are trying to cut down on our shop paper use. All shop orders will be sent WITHOUT an invoice unless you request one before your order has shipped.

It is the buyers' responsibility to read all shop policies before placing an order.

Custom orders:

We will no longer be allowing customers to reserve items going into an update. We want to make shop updates fair for everyone.

We are no longer taking any custom orders for project bags.

We do accept custom orders for yarn. There is a 2 skein (all one colorway) minimum order size.
We do not dye mini skein sets for custom orders.
We charge an additional 20% fee for all custom orders. You can choose the colorway from our regularly dyed colorways (check the "Sold" section of our shop to see different options).
We do not dye custom colorways.
Seasonal colorways will not be available unless they are currently available in the shop.
Custom orders will ship 1-3 weeks from the order date, depending on the current turnaround time. Please message us for a time estimate.
If you would like to place a custom order (for yarn only - we do not make custom project bags), please send us a message here on Etsy.
We will then create a reserved listing for you. Payment must be made in full before we dye your yarn.
All custom orders are final sale.

Wholesale orders:

Our acceptance of wholesale orders will depend on the current volume of orders in our shop. If you are interested in placing a wholesale order, please write us a detailed message including the size of order you would like to place, what specific products you are interested in, and the date you would like your order to be finished.
We will return your message as quickly as possible to let you know if we can meet your requirements.

Our minimum order size is 20 bags (any sizes) OR 20 skeins (any bases).
Please allow 6-8 weeks for your order to be completed (depending on the size, and current turnaround time).
If you are interested in a custom colorway for your wholesale order, we are happy to work with you to come up with something you are happy with. Please be aware that an additional charge of 20% will apply for this service.
The buyer is responsible for ALL shipping costs. Wholesale orders will always be sent with a tracking number. We are happy to provide you with a shipping quote.

We require payment in full for all items and shipping prior to beginning work on your order.

If you are interested in a wholesale order, please message us here on Etsy.
