FAQs

Thank you for your interest in Robin's Promise Yarn Co.! I appreciate that you're taking time out of your busy schedule and have found something that interests you on my site!

Below are a few FAQs that will help you navigate choosing your yarn. I will continue to add to this page as new questions arise.

 

Do your colors bleed?

All of my yarns are dyed by me, Susan. I rinse all yarns until the water runs clear. That being said, water is not created equal. The water in your home is likely very different than the water in my studio, which can affect how much a yarn bleeds. Also, what additives are you using to rinse the yarn? Is there agitation? All of these things can cause yarns to bleed. If you are concerned about yarn bleeding, test wash a swatch of all the colors you wish to use in your handmade garment, especially if you're mixing colors.

 

Why are your colors not uniform?

I hand-dye 5 skeins per pan. The hand-dye process is not exact and can change with water chemical changes, humidity and other factors.

 

Return Policy?

We do not accept returns. All sales are final.

 

I cut my yarn opening my package, can you replace my yarn?

Every package we ship is packaged with at least 2 inches of clearance from the yarn. The yarn will shift in transit. Upon arrival, we recommend opening your package with your hands. Do NOT use scissors or blades to open your package as you will run the risk of cutting your yarn.  

 

When do you ship?

We ship in the mornings on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. If you order at 3 pm on Friday, your order will be shipped Tuesday morning.

 

Can I special order a quantity of color or a special color way?

Please use the CONTACT US form to contact me for any special orders.

 

I have selected a yarn, but it won't appear in my cart. What's wrong?

Right now, Shopify will not allow me to show inventory quantities. If you have selected a color and the cart won't allow you to check out with it, then likely, the yarn you have selected is not currently stocked. Please send us a message if you are dying to have a yarn and you can't purchase it. Meanwhile, we are contacting Shopify to help us solve the problem.
