How will my order be packed?
All patterns are sent in cardboard backed envelopes even if you buy wool as well. This should mean your pattern will arrive in perfect condition. Yarn is vacuum packed and then placed inside a mailer. The double packaging should ensure your yarn arrives in perfect condition. On arrival simply cut open the vacuum pack and your yarn will take a deep breath and return to its normal proportions.

I've a knot in my yarn?
Unfortunately knots in yarn are fairly standard these days from most of the yarn manufacturers. Yes as a knitter I'm fully aware how frustrating it is, I would suggest cutting out the knot and rejoining on an edge. Your wool would only be considered faulty if it has more than three knots. If this is the case please contact us.
I'm attending a workshop what do I need to know?
Each workshop description has a list of materials you will need to bring with you on the day. For most workshops we no longer provide yarn but we will provide you with a discount voucher to use on the day against any purchases you wish to make.
