Shop policies

Periwinkle Sheep yarns are lovingly hand dyed in small batches. Utmost care is used in handling each skein. Color representation is as accurate as possible. Please note that due to the hand dye process and variations in monitors, skeins may not look exactly as they appear.

Returns and exchange details
I check each skein for any kind of flaw in the spinning or dyeing. While the occasional single knot MAY occur, and is considered normal, please do not hesitate to convo me if a skein has a noticeable uneven spot, or a streak I may have missed. I will issue you a refund for the cost of the yarn, or send you a replacement - your choice!
payment method is through pay pal, credit card, or etsy gift certificate.
Periwinkle Sheep yarn is usually shipped via First Class Mail or Priority Mail (depending on total weight of your order) within 5 business days of receiving payment. I will contact you if there are any delays beyond this time frame.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please do not hesitate to convo me if you ever need more than one skein for a project. I'll be happy to dye up a fresh batch for you!
