Why does my yarn look different from the picture?
I do my best to capture the yarn accurately in photographs and to edit the photo before adding pictures to my website, so that the photos represent the actual yarn as closely as possible. The photo may look different on your screen due to different screen and monitor settings and variations. Please also keep in mind that the skein in the photograph may not be the one you receive with your order, and the skeins do vary from skein to skein, even in the same dye batch, as is expected with Hand Dyed yarn.
Do you accept returns?
I want you to be satisfied with your order. If a mistake was made by Jilly & Kiddles, such as a missing or incorrect item in your order, the customer must contact Jilly & Kiddles within 14 days of postmark on package. I will cover the cost of sending the missing item or supply a return shipping label for incorrect item and shipment of the correct one. If you are not satisfied with your order for any other reason, please contact Jilly & Kiddles within 14 days of postmark to make return or exchanges. Customer will be responsible for shipping costs if returning or exchanging items for any reason other than a mistake by Jilly & Kiddles. Products will be accepted for exchange or return only if in the original condition. I cannot accept yarn that is wound into cakes, tangled, missing ball bands, or dirty.

Any Yarn Club kits or discounted yarn are final sale and cannot be returned.

We are not responsible for delays due to customs or shipping companies. Buyer is responsible for any customs and duties that may apply.
How long will it take to ship my order?
In stock items will be processed in 3-5 days, plus shipping time. I generally try to ship orders the next day.
What does it mean if the colorway says "DAISY" in the name?
"Daisy" is the name for one-off colorways, as in Whoops-a-daisy. As you know, the nature of hand-dyed yarn is that there is some variation from skein to skein, even within a batch. This is to be expected, and is considered a desirable part of artisanal yarn. However, generally, a colorway should look pretty consistent from skein to skein and batch to batch. Occasionally, a batch turns out differently than expected. If it doesn't meet my criteria for a particular colorway, I will not sell it as that colorway. It just isn't fair to my customers. I want you to get what you are expecting. So a batch that isn't as expected will be called a Daisy, so you'll know it's not the typical version of that colorway. It can still be beautiful!
So if you see a listing for a skein called "DAISY - Plankton" for example, it's going to be something similar to Plankton, but not quite. Some indie dyers call these one-offs, seconds, or something along those lines. It's the same idea. Please keep in mind that Daisies are non-repeatable colorways. As always, email me anytime if you aren't sure what I mean by this or are confused by the type of variation I'm talking about.
Yarn is hand-dyed by me in my home studio. Our home is a pet free, non-smoking home. I use professional acid dyes and quality bases that I have chosen with great care.
Hand-dyed yarns are unique by design. I try to ensure consistency as much as possible, but the colors and shading will vary from skein to skein. This adds to the beauty of these handmade items. Like many indie yarn companies, I recommend alternating skeins as you knit to prevent pooling or dramatic changes as skeins are changed, and for best results.
Jilly & Kiddles always recommends washing items made from our yarn by hand. Squeeze out water and air dry for best results and longevity.
