Sari Silk Ribbon Necklaces and a bit by Tracy from Make Bracelets! – Darn Good Yarn

June 19, 2013

Do you have an itch to make some jewelry? When the scarves and mittens come off, our necks and wrists can suddenly feel bare! Tracy over at Make Bracelets! featured Darn Good Yarn’s 5 yard Sari Silk Ribbon cards recently, so we just had to share this with you all!

Aren’t they absolutely stunning?! I personally LOVE wrap bracelets, so these are a big hit with me. And with so much variety with the ribbon colors and bead combinations, the possibilities are endless. :)

Thank you so much for submitting these! I love how you integrated a little touch of beads here and there to really accent the yarn. :)

Darn Good Yarn’s Return Policy

September 23, 2010

Please note this fantastic return policy is for the yarn purchased on my site darngoodyarn.com, not ebay (Ebay is a 14 days in original condition–sorry it’s more strict, their fees make it very restrictive, feel free to order through this site and get a better deal anyway!).

Q: What’s your return policy?
A: Did you ever hear that commercial that talks about happy cheese comes from happy cows? Well, happy crafts come from happy Darn Good Yarn-ers. I (Nicole, the owner of Darn Good Yarn) know that shopping online can suck sometimes. When it comes to yarn, it’s a tactile experience… mmm to run your fingers over the yarn. So, shopping for these jewels online takes a wind out of the sales a little (but luckily I charge a lot less than your LYS, you’re still supporting one very small business and you can shop in your PJ’s at my store).

But, this is why Darn Good Yarn is so, well, Darn Good. Try it, Feel it, Love it, Hate it, Use it, Stare at it. If you’re not pleased with it (even if you’ve started crafting with it), send it all back in 30 and I’ll refund you even the shipping. Trying Darn Good Yarn is 100% Risk Free If you’ve started using it and you’re not delighted, just stop, take it off the needles, put it in the box and send it back to me. You have 30 days from placing the order, International orders have 40 days from placing the order. Prior to returning any yarn, please contact us at info@darngoodyarn.com with the reason and what exactly you’re returning.

FREE BALL OR SKEIN OF YARN!

September 16, 2010

Buy any 5 balls or skeins of yarn on the entire site (mix, match and coordinate!) and you’ll get a free ball of yarn. The free ball will be equivalent to the least expensive ball of yarn. If you would like to specify the free ball of yarn you’d like, just message us when you check out! You don’t need to add it to your cart! That’s important because you’ll get charged for it!

When you check out, after you submit your payment info (like credit card info) you will see a link that says “message seller” click that and just write a note to me like “hey Nicole I want my free ball of yarn to be the premium recycled silk yarn”.

Also, for any bulk packages of yarn (the 1kg or 2kg bulk discounts) this offer is excluded because the yarns in the bulk discount are so heavily reduced.

If you have any questions, just let me know! nicole@darngoodyarn.com

Tunics you can make with Darn Good Yarn

September 13, 2010

Tunics!

Almost like sweaters but depending on where you are in the world, more versatile! And the great thing is that since most of our yarns (like the Premium Recycled Silk Sari Yarn) are lighter, these are great options in case you need to layer over to keep warm moving from the indoors to the outdoors! They also tend to go long enough to go past your patootie :) a feature I like in case I wear low-cute jeans!

Also, if you ever have a question about how many balls of yarn to get for a pattern, email us! That’s what we’re here for!
