Frequently asked questions

Products

Is your yarn ethical?


Our fibres are sourced from reliable material suppliers where we can establish best practise in relation to animal husbandry and the environment, as well as the best rearing and grading practices.

No animals are injured to provide our fibre as we only use shorn materials or material that has shed naturally from the animal.




Can I see your yarn in person?


Yes! You can come along to any of the events that we are attending, ask our advice, browse, and meet like-minded yarnies! View Events




What is Dyed to Order (DTO)?


Yarn which is dyed to order (DTO) may take up to two weeks longer to arrive than ready-to-go yarn. Orders which contain both ready-to-go and DTO products will be dispatched when the entire order is ready. To avoid this, please place a seperate order for DTO items. The images supplied are to be used as an indication of the final colour, however the match is not guaranteed due to the absorbency and chemical balance of different base-fibres. Due to their custom-made nature, all DTO products are non-refundable.




What does "Pre-order" mean?


Pre-ordered items are only posted out on the advertised date. Orders which contain both ready-to-go and pre-ordered products will be dispatched when the entire order is ready. To avoid this, please place a separate order for pre-order items.




Washing and drying instructions


Technically, any yarn described as "Superwash" can be machine washed (on a low heat, low spin cycle). However, we would ALWAYS recommend hand washing in warm soapy water. This is to avoid colour leakage, felting, and damaging your make.
Dry flat to avoid stretching/warping your projects. Never tumble dry wool products.
This may seem frustrating, but it is worth protecting the time and money spent on your creations




How do I use yarn that is twisted into a hank?


Yarn swift A hank is made up of a large loop, 1-2m in diameter. To avoid tangles, we leave tags on our yarn: remember to remove these before attempting to wind. The easiest way is by using a Yarn Swift and a ball winder (right) to trandform the hank into a "cake" or ball. If you don't have a yarn swift, you can carefully hang the hank on a door handle, or ask a friend to hold it taut while you manually wind the yarn into a ball. Or... We now offer a Caking service for ONLY £1 per hank!
