About TheYarnivoreUK

Sales 367
On Etsy since 2016

Mamma maker, yarn lover, knits knots and crochet!

The Yarnivore began life as a different shop (Pulpo and Peach), but after a long hard think I decided that I needed a shop name that suited me better!
As with many knitters and crocheters, I soon became a total yarnaholic. In fact, if I could, I would live off the stuff!! Hence Yarnivore: Someone who lives off yarn ^.^
It also fits in nicely with the fact that my crochet life began with dinosaur hats, as what better to be than a yarny dinosaur. Rawr!

Frequently asked questions

Gift wrapping and packaging

Please note the marked as a gift option simply means that a price will not appear on the receipt, gift messages will be printed on the packing slip as per Etsy's standard.
We do not currently offer a gift wrap service.

Sizing details

If you're having difficulty choosing a size then just let me know! For hats the measurements I use are the circumference of the head and the measurement from the top of the head (crown) to the bottom of the ear.
If you'd like to request a custom size blanket please send me a message for a quote.

Care instructions

Care instructions will be included where necesary. Most acrylic blankets and hats can be washed at 30, cotton at 40.
Take care when washing pompoms as they may shed - ideally these items should be spot cleaned or put on a delicate wash in a pillowcase/lingerie bag.
Stuffed elements can be reshaped whilst damp.
Please wash similar colours together to prevent colour run.
Coasters cannot be washed due to the felt backing.
