Shipping from United States

Periwinkle Sheep yarn is usually shipped via First Class Mail within 3-5 business days of receiving payment. I will contact you if there are any delays beyond this timeframe.


I check each skein for any kind of flaw in the spinning or dyeing. While the occasional single knot MAY occur, and is considered normal, please do not hesitate to convo me if a skein has a noticeable uneven spot, or a streak I may have missed. I will issue you a refund for the cost of the yarn.


Please do not hesitate to convo me if you ever need more than one skein for a project. I'll be happy to dye up a fresh batch for you!
