RETURNS + EXCHANGE POLICY
I love happy customers and I want you to love your yarn! If you are not completely satisfied with your order, you may return it for a full refund. I do not offer exchanges at this time. Please email me and I will issue you a return shipping label.
Yarn must be returned in the condition that it was received. Yarn that is caked, missing a label, damaged or soiled will not be accepted.
Return shipping costs may apply. Voolenvine Yarns is not responsible for International return shipping costs.
Q: I placed multiple orders. Can you combine them to save me the extra shipping costs?
A: Due to the high volume of orders we receive each week, the additional shipping costs for multiple orders cannot be refunded.
Q: I received a shipment notification, but when I check the tracking info on the USPS website, there is no data. Where is my stuff?
A: When you receive a shipment notification, your item has been packaged and stamped. It will be collected by the post office later or the following day.
Please allow 1-3 days for tracking info to appear on the USPS website. Unfortunately, orders being shipped internationally cannot be tracked after they have left the US.
Q: I placed an order from outside the US. Can you mark my package as a “gift” so I can save on customs fees?
A: Legally, all international orders must be marked as “merchandise”.
The buyer is responsible for shipping costs and additional fees and taxes.
Please visit the terms & conditions page for more information regarding international orders.
Q: What happens if I think my package was lost or stolen?
A: In most cases, packages are simply delayed. If the tracking status says "delivered" but you still haven't received it, please allow 2-3 more days for actual delivery. Otherwise, contact your local USPS.
Since the rise of Covid times, you may have noticed an uptick in shipping delays and (unfortunately) lost packages. It doesn't happen often but when it does, it can be frustrating for both buyer and seller.
To give us both peace of mind, I've added a $3 USD "SHIPPING INSURANCE" option at checkout. This fee will be added to your order total*.
While optional, I strongly recommend adding shipping insurance to large and/or international orders. Should a package go missing it will enable me to file a claim and recoup the cost for both ends. I've been through the process for a large order that sadly went missing and believe me ... It's worth it!
Please know, Voolenvine Yarns is NOT responsible for uninsured lost or stolen packages.
*If placing multiple orders on the same day, you only need to add the fee once. While I'm unable to adjust/refund shipping costs, multiple orders will be combined into one shipment.
Q: Oops! I provided the incorrect shipping address.
A: The customer assumes responsibility for any mistakes made entering the shipping address. If you provided the incorrect shipping address, please email me immediately to let me know. Once a package has been shipped, there is nothing I can do. You may contact the USPS with your tracking number an attempt to intercept the package.
Q: I received the wrong or missing item. Now what?
A: While I'm very thorough when it comes to packaging, mistakes happen. Please contact me immediately and I will work to correct your order at no extra cost to you.
