Updated Shipping Notice

Published April 2nd, 2020

1. Is Yarnspirations still shipping orders?

Yes. We continue to monitor updates from federal, state/provincial, and local officials to ensure we can get craft supplies to you safely and effectively— we recognize this is a time when many of us need them most.

In line with government guidance, we are continuing to operate our online retail activities on Yarnspirations.com. For the time being, online orders are still open, encouraged, and being shipped as promptly as possible.


2. Will there be a delay with my parcel?

Because of the increased volume and extra precautions taken at every stage of your order’s journey, you should expect some delays with your parcel. Please allow an extra week or so for your order to arrive even on orders with Expedited Shipping selected.

Orders


  • How does ordering work?

    Please submit your order at Yarnspirations.com, we are not able to process orders via telephone. After you submit your order, you will receive a computer-generated confirmation that your order was placed. Please check your spam/junk folder if you do not see this email within 5 minutes of completing your order. If there are extra shipping, handling or other charges for your order, we will let you know the amount when the order is confirmed.

    We pride ourselves on getting our orders on their way quickly and efficiently. While our average processing time is 36 hours, unfortunately, on occasion, it can take 3-4 business days to pick, pack and ship your order. All orders are picked, packed and shipped on a “first come, first serve” basis, we do not expedite processing times for individual orders.

    At this time we do not process backorders. If your item is out of stock at the time of fulfillment, we will cancel the out of stock product, ship the balance of your order, and issue a refund for the missing product, taxes (if applicable) and shipping upcharge. You will need to place a new order if you still need the item when it is back in stock.

    If the item(s) you order are out of stock at the time of fulfillment we will cancel the order to stop the hold on your funds. If you have not received a Ship Confirmation email within 4 business days and you have verified the Ship Confirmation email is not in your spam/junk folder, please log into your Yarnspirations.com account to confirm your order is still active. If it has been cancelled, and you did not request the cancellation, we did not have enough of the item(s) you ordered. Please watch for the item(s) to be back in stock and place a new order.
  • What currency are your prices in?

    Prices on our US, UK, or International sites are displayed and charged in USD. Shoppers on our Canadian site will see prices in CAD and will have their payment method charged in CAD as well. You can switch between these sites by using the dropdown menu on the upper right-hand side of our website.
  • Do you offer Gift Cards?

    No, unfortunately we are unable to offer gift cards at this time.
  • Do you have a physical store I can visit?

    The Yarnspirations store is virtual only and can be found at Yarnspirations.com. We encourage you to visit your local craft retailer to touch and feel our yarns in person.
  • Do you offer backorders?

    We do not hold backorders. We fill hundreds, sometimes thousands of orders every day and, while we strive to fill everyone's order efficiently and completely, occasionally the available quantity of an item is not sufficient to fulfill all incoming orders for that particular product.

    If you place an order for product and we do run out of stock, that item will automatically be cancelled from the order and you will be issued a refund. We do not backorder. If we had to cancel an item from your order, you will receive notification via email with the details of the refund; item, quantity, and amount. This notification will be sent to the email account used to create your Yarnspirations.com account. If you still want the remainder of your order, please return to Yarnspirations.com to place another order for the items previously out of stock.

Orders shipped to Canadian addresses will be required to pay any applicable taxes on delivery. Orders shipped to some US states will see their taxes calculated and applied at checkout.
  • How does the Free Shipping promotion work?

    All orders totaling $60 or more before applicable taxes qualify for the Free Standard Shipping Promotion. The terms and conditions of this promotion are outlined below:

The easiest way to make sure it is correct is to copy and paste it into place and click "Apply".

  • What is a flash sale?

    A flash sale is a discount or promotion offered by an ecommerce store for a short period of time. The product quantity is limited, which often means the discounts are higher or more significant than run-of-the-mill promotions.

  • Can I update my shipping address on the order I have placed?

    Your package will ship to the shipping address you supplied with your order. If your package is returned to us because there is a mistake or missing information in the shipping address you provided, the order will be processed as a return, the merchandise will be returned to stock and you will receive a complete refund for the products only; shipping charges will not be refunded. If you would still like the items, you ordered you will need to return to Yarnspirations.com to place your order again.

Our Products

  • How is your yarn manufactured?

    Yarnspirations carries yarn made with both synthetic and natural fibers.

    The wool used in our yarn comes from sheep raised in Australia, New Zealand, South America, and Falkland. It is brought to the United Kingdom, where it is blended together in a roughly equal combination of content from each region, though this does vary from load to load.

    The cotton used in our yarn is USA grown, though is not classified as organic or GMO-free.

    All of our products are not treated or dyed with any epoxy or varnish compounds. We do not use Urea Formaldehyde Resin or Disperse blues. All of the materials used to manufacture our yarns are OEKO-TEX Standard certified. This standard certifies that the dyestuffs used do not present a health risk or risk to the environment.
  • Are your Patons yarns or patterns the same as Patons UK or Australia?

    Please note that Patons UK and Patons Australia are separate entities and are not affiliated with Patons North America. Our patterns and yarn are produced by Patons North America.
  • Which of your wool yarns will felt?

    You can use Patons Classic Wool Worsted, Patons Classic Wool Bulky, and Patons Classic Wool Roving for your felting projects.
  • How does the striping effect of Bernat Pop! yarn differ from other yarns?

    Bernat Pop! is a print dyed yarn, which means this yarn undergoes a different dying process than other self-striping yarns. The result is that every ball of Bernat Pop! will have the same colors, though each ball may not start and end with the same color or include the same length of each color.

  • I am looking for a specific product— has it been discontinued?

    You can find our entire product offering on Yarnspirations.com, unless a product is limited-edition or seasonal only. If you do not find the yarn or color you are looking for, more than likely it has been discontinued. We do not keep a back-stock of any of our yarns; once they are discontinued and sold out, they are no longer available through us. You may, however, still be able to find it at your local retailer or even an online discount retailer.
  • I am looking for a specific yarn but don’t see it listed on your website, can you help?

    If you are looking for a specific product made by Caron, Bernat, Patons, Lily Sugar’n Cream, or Phentex, Red Heart, or Coats & Clark but don’t see it listed on our website, it could mean that this product has been discontinued or that the product is sold exclusively at other retailers. Products listed as “Out of Stock” are still in production and will be re-stocked.
  • Do you have a catalog?

    While Yarnspirations does not offer a printed catalog of our products, our website acts as an online catalog of the products we carry and currently have in stock. In order to ensure that our customers have access to the most current styles, prices, shades, and overall selection, we do not publish a catalog that you may purchase directly from us. Plus, with all the styles that we carry, a catalog would be as big as a phone book!
  • Do you have a physical store I can visit?

    The Yarnspirations store is virtual only and can be found at Yarnspirations.com. We encourage you to visit your local craft retailer to touch and feel our yarns in person.

  • How do I find out what solid colored yarns are in the multi-colored yarns?

    We currently only have this information available for Red Heart yarns. You will can find this information in the Multi-Color Coordinate List here.
  • Will my order contain yarn from the same dye lot?

    Some yarns are dyed in large batches with each batch assigned a "dye lot number". Using a color from the same dye batch assures a color match from skein to skein. Other yarns are spun from fiber that is already colored and are labeled as "no dye lot" yarns.

    Unfortunately, we are not able to match dye lots. We do try, but depending on demand, the warehouse can go through several dye lots in less than a week. And when dye-lots are picked through looking for matching dye-lots to complete a single order we unfortunately sometimes end up with a few skeins in each of several dye-lots. If you cannot find the dye lot you were using, the best thing to do is to take some of what you have to the store and try to get the best match. Look at it in natural and artificial light if possible. Work alternating rows with the two different dye lots to lessen the effect of knitting with a second dye lot. Not all stores carry all of our yarns in all available colors so you will need to check with the individual store. You can order any of our yarns in any color online.
  • How do I set the dye in my yarn?

    While not necessary with most of our products, you may find that you need to set the dye in your yarn to prevent it from bleeding. This is more common with yarns that feature a rich, dark color, because these require a heavier application of dyes, which may not fully absorb into the yarn.

    After your project is completed, soak it in a solution of cold water with ½ to 1 cup of coarse salt, depending on the size of your item. After half an hour of soaking, rinse your item with clean water. Prepare a solution of equal amounts white vinegar and water, which you will use to soak your item again for half an hour. After this second soaking, rinse your item for the final time. This process will leave your dye set.

  • Tizzy Recall

    If you have purchased Bernat Tizzy yarn and would like to return it as part of our voluntary product recall, please contact our Customer Care team directly here.
  • What is OEKO-TEX Standard certification?

    Yarns that are OEKO-TEX certified are free of harmful chemicals and substances, making them safe for the environment and to use on projects for your whole family. With OEKO-TEX certification, you can be certain that every component has been tested for harmful substances and it is therefore is harmless in human ecological terms. The test is conducted by independent OEKO-TEX facilities on the basis of an extensive criteria catalog. In the test they take into account numerous regulated and non-regulated substances that may be harmful to human health. Often, this goes beyond national and international requirements. The criteria catalog is updated at least once a year and expanded with new scientific knowledge or statutory requirements.
  • What is used to dye your yarns? Is it safe?

    All of our products are not treated or dyed with any epoxy or varnish compounds. We do not use Urea Formaldehyde Resin or Disperse blues. All of the materials used to manufacture our yarns are OEKO-TEX Standard certified. This standard certifies that the dyestuffs used do not present a health risk or risk to the environment.

  • I have found a pattern on your website that I love, but it is written for knit and I only crochet (or vice versa). Can you help?

    While some patterns have been written for both knit and crochet, most patterns have been specifically written for just one craft type. Unfortunately, we cannot provide both versions for every pattern on Yarnspirations.com.

    Our patterns are only available for home craft-knitters and not for commercial use. However, you are permitted to sell your completed item at a small scale, e.g. a small craft fair or church bazaar, under the stipulation that you credit the brand of yarn you used and credit our website: https://www.yarnspirations.com.

  • Do I have to purchase the items in a kit in order to have access to the pattern?

    No, there is no purchase required to download any pattern on Yarnspirations.com. Our kits are designed to provide a quick and easy way to gather all the materials you may need for each pattern and add them to your cart. To download a pattern without purchasing the kit, simply click the blue DOWNLOAD FREE PATTERN button that appears above the kit on each pattern page.

  • How do I know if there has been updates to a pattern I have been working on?

    As of August 2019, Yarnspirations pattern PDFs will contain a last-updated date on the bottom right-hand side of each pattern. All patterns will show a date of August 2019 as a default, even if they have been published and updated prior to this date.
