SALES TAX

Sales taxes are based on the shipping address of your order within Canada. Sales taxes are not applied to US and other international orders.

COLOURS

We have made every effort to present yarn colours as accurately as possible. Due to variations in dye lots and because computer monitors display colour differently, there may be some inconsistencies.

We are happy to accept returns on yarn for store credit within 90 days of purchase if unused, in original condition, and with the original receipt.
