Product Presentation and Description:

  • We know that ordering from a screen can sometimes be tricky, so we want it to be as painless for you as possible. We photograph actual balls and cones of yarn where possible to give you the most accurate indication of colour.
  • The settings of your monitor/tablet or phone (brightness, contrast, colour settings) will influence the way the images appear on your screen and we suggest sending us a sample if you need to match a particular yarn.
  • Images should be viewed along with the descriptions of colour.
  • We put as much input into the narrative of each product as we can to give you a really good indication of what you are buying.
  • Meterages are guides and not precise units and if we don't know a specific meterage, count or washing instruction we will err on the side of caution and suggest the closest we think based on our experience.
  • By using the textile counts systems we can often calculate a meterage accurately, but due to tension of winding machines, humidity and moisture content a yarn may be longer or shorter than expected (even if the weight is accurate).
  • Within each product description we suggest crafts that each item is suitable for, but these are just guidelines and we suggest making a small sample, and subjecting it to the final treatment your overall piece will be used under before embarking on the completion (making and washing a tension square, stitching and washing a sewn sample etc.).
  • This is particularly important if you are knitting or crocheting with a yarn other than that stated in a pattern or if you choose to use a weaving yarn for a knitting project or crocheting with a rug yarn etc. etc.
  • Rules can be broken though, so play around and experiment if you want to be adventurous, but we cannot accept liability for outcomes of projects as conditions of use are totally outside our control (whether good or not so good!).

    • Your referred friend isn't already registered with us.
    • They register an account with the same email you sent them the request.
    • They place an order of £25 or more (not including postage).
  • If one or any of your referred friends return their order, your reward will be revoked and if you have spent it you will be liable to repay this amount.

  • Your rewards do not expire. This includes referrers and referrals, so if you don't place an order of £25 for while - it will be activated the first time you order is over this amount, even if you have placed smaller orders in the interim. For referrers - your rewards will sit in your account until you are ready to spend them
  • You can access your referral activity and reward account at any time by logging into your account and clicking "Referred Friends" in the "My Account" menu.
