Terms and Conditions of Gorgeous Yarns

Sorry this is a bit wordy, we are happy to chat with you if you prefer…..

Product Descriptions

All the information on the Gorgeous Yarns online shop website is accurate to the best of our knowledge. However, we are human and make mistakes and we will correct errors as soon as they are brought to our attention. Because of the difference in which computer screens display colours, the colour that you see may not match the actual colour of the yarn. If colour matching is essential, please ask for a free colour swatch. Most of the yarns sold by Gorgeous Yarns are hand dyed in small batches; there is some natural variation in colour of the yarns, and dye lots may not be able to be matched for a big order of a number of skeins. In this situation we suggest that you work with 2 skeins of different dye lots at the same time, alternating rows worked.

Prices and Payment
Payment is made at the time of ordering, via PayPal, a secure payment process and our preferred method of payment. But you do not need a Paypal account to purchase from us via the website.
