A few updates:
Yarn Folk remains closed for regular retail business at least through May 4th.
I’ve listed some additional items at yarnfolk.com/shop, and can set up personalized payment links for orders outside of what is listed there. All orders will be mailed; no in person business may be conducted under Washington’s Stay Home order, but I have confirmed that my mailing practices are within the scope of the order. I will be going to the shop periodically to fill orders, clean, and do other tasks, but please know I am also observing the Stay Home directive, so this will not be daily.
Some good news is that one of my vendors, Berroco, is offering drop shipment to my customers. Here are the details:
All Berroco and partner brand yarns including Lang, Amano, WoolAddicts and Lopi, plus pattern books are available
You may order by the hank or skein—requirement for full-bag purchases has been suspended
There is a flat rate shipping charge of $7
Orders will be sent via USPS (First Class or Priority Mail)
All orders must be placed with Yarn Folk via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) — Berroco does not accept retail orders directly.
You can view yarns and patterns at www.berroco.com — click on the links at the top of the page to view yarns from the partner brands.
