FAQ

What is a preorder?
A preorder is the style of shop update we do. We post a collection of colorways at one time that can be ordered on any of our base yarn options. The preorder stays open until we reach capacity or for 1 week, whichever happens first. We then close the shop, dye all the orders and ship out in 2 weeks.

What kinds of yarn do you stock?
Currently we stock only protein fibers sourced within the USA.
We carry 5 yarn bases and their information is on each and every colorway listing.

What projects can I make with each base yarn?
As always, have fun and make what you love! I do have some suggestions for what I would make with each of our base yarns to help make sense of so many options.
  • Mohair - hold together with classic yarns to add a fuzzy halo to sweaters and cardigans
  • Classic Sock - socks, shawls, lightweight sweaters
  • Classic DK - hats, scarves, sweaters
  • Classic Worsted - scarves, hats, cardigans
  • Classic Bulky - blankets, hats, outerwear

Will my yarn look exactly like the photos?
Sometimes. The best thing about hand dyed yarn is that every skein is unique! The exact same dye applications are used for all of our skeins within a specific colorway and we do our best to keep color consistent. However, there are many factors that can affect the final skein and you may see slight variation on your skein.

One such factor is the base yarn you choose. You can see below the color variation one recipe takes on each of our yarn bases! Please keep in mind that the base has a large part in how your yarn looks when it arrives to you. (This photo includes some bases we no longer carry).

Variegated/Speckled
Semi Solid

Will I be able to order more of this yarn after this collection closes?
Sorry, friend. Each collection's colorways are available only while the collection is up for sale on the website. We love to change things up and will be bringing in a brand new collection on the 15th of each month!

For this reason, we strongly recommend grabbing as many of a colorway as you'd need to complete the project in mind (if you have one) since you won't be able to buy more of that colorway from us later on.

I don't live in the USA. Can I still buy your yarn?
Yes! We ship worldwide to over 240 countries, there are just additional shipping fees to get your yarn safely to you. Be aware you may incur additional customs fees depending on your own country's customs policies.

I bought some yarn, how long before it ships?
Our current processing time is 2-3 weeks from the time of order placement.

What are Limited Edition items?
These are so fun! They change month to month and always tie into the theme. Sometimes we will have a cute enamel pin that coordinates with the collection, or a candle or a small batch of specialty yarn that's outside of what we usually do!

How do I prepare your yarn to knit or crochet with?
Our yarns are wound into hanks so you'll need to wind them into balls or cakes to work with. I've linked a couple of easy youtube videos below to help you!
