(3)   Claims Regarding Yarn Color and Expectations

All yarn sold by is new, and received directly from our distributors.  We will ship you one dye lot, unless you order two different dye lots.

Hand dyed yarn is an art not a science.  It is not unusual for skeins to contain one or more knots. Additionally, skeins may vary within one dye lot with respect to color(s), and may vary from shipment to shipment.  When knitting with multicolored or hand dyed yarn, the knitter may need to alternate every few rows between two skeins to get a more even color pattern.  The knitter may wish to start knitting at a specific color point in the skein to have a more closely matched sock or knitted section.

Complaints regarding skeins matching, dye jobs or knots in skeins are not defects.  They do not prevent you from knitting with or completing a project with the yarn so long as you follow the manufacturer's recommendations.  Thus, yarn may not be returned as defective for complaints of skeins matching, dye jobs or knots in skeins.  They can however be returned if said yarn is unused, and in original (saleable) condition, and falls within the parameters of our general return policy, as provided in paragraph 1 above. 

(4)  Claims For Damaged/Defective Items

If you receive an item that has been damaged in shipment, or is otherwise defective, contact us withing 48 hours of receipt of the shipment to explain the problem and receive a RMA (if applicable) for return of said product.  Once we receive the returned item and verify that it is in fact damaged or defective, we will replace the item at our expense and issue you a credit for return shipping to us.

Books, knitting needles, and other generally nonreturnable items will be replaced if defective or damaged in shipment with the exact same item.  They cannot be returned for store credit or item substitutions.  Yarn complaints involving skeins matching, dye jobs or knots in skeins are subject to the limitations provided in paragraph 3 above, and are not returnable under this paragraph as defective.

If we receive a returned item that is in fact not damaged or defective, no replacement will be shipped to you.  You will have the option of having the item shipped back to you at your expense.  If you choose not to pay to have the item shipped back to you, it will be disposed of as we see fit.
