Additional return information
I do not accept returns on yarn, *unless the error is mine (shipping out wrong base, color by mistake). Once yarn is received and is in the same state as it was shipped out , (if you have caked the yarn I cannot refund or return) you will then be granted an even exchange, or return. I will not refund if yarn has been tampered with, has been exposed to smoke, animal hair, bugs, or has been partially worked up. Yarn needs to be in it's twist with original tag. If under extraordinary circumstances, your order is damaged during transit, I will work with you to resolve the issue. This would result in an even exchange, and I will cover the return/shipping fees. Please message me if there is a problem other than what has been stated. Soaps CANNOT be returned due to sanitary laws. If you find that you have had a reaction or are unhappy with it I will gladly refund you. Custom orders CANNOT be returned. YOU HAVE 1 HOUR TO CANCEL YOUR ORDER OTHERWISE I CANNOT REFUND YOU.
Thank you :)
Hand-Dyed Yarn policy-No two hanks are alike. Beach Bum Yarn hand paints most of it's color ways which results in random, original dyes. This is part of the beauty of hand dyeing. If you are ordering multiple hanks, I will try to get them as close as possible since they will be dyed at the same time. Most of my items are on a MADE-TO-ORDER basis unless specified, or in the open stock category which will ship immediately. If you order a made-to-order and an open stock item at the same time, your order will ship out in 1-2 weeks. All yarn is dyed with professional grade acid dyes, pre-soaked in a citric acid, or distilled vinegar and water solution. Yarn is then carefully rinsed and soaked in a special detergent to eliminate excess dye. It is recommended to hand wash your yarn in COLD water (either in it's received state or when you have finished a project using the yarn). Please use mild soap to wash your yarn and dry flat. I try my very best to wash out excess dye, but in some cases, and certain colors, bleeding will occur. This is not the fibers losing color, it is just excess. Your yarn has been set using high heat and the colors have locked into the fibers.
