A Note about Hand-Dyed Yarn
Many of the yarns we carry are hand-dyed, hand-painted, kettled-dyed or dyed in small, artisanal batches.
It is suggested that you purchase all the yarn you need for a project when using these yarns. We also suggest that you alternate rows from different balls of yarn when knitting to mitigate any noticeable variations in dye.
We further recommend that you wash and block your pieces in a small bucket or other container dedicated for this purpose using fine fiber wash and color-catching sheets that will "grab" any dye that may lift from the yarn.
The Artful Yarn is not responsible
for the character or dye properties
of any yarn.
Our Return Policy
You may return complete skeins/balls of unused yarn within 30 days of purchase for store credit only as long as the yarn and any packaging has not been used in any way and is undamaged,
e.g. free of odors, etc.
You may return needles/hooks within 7 days for store credit only as long as the product and packaging have not been damaged in any way.
The Artful Yarn does not accept returns on books, sale items or kits.
The Artful Yarn reserves the right to decline a return if the item is considered unusable in any way.
