Frequently Asked Questions

When can I expect my order to be shipped?

Under normal circumstances, every effort is made to ship your item within three business days, Monday through Friday. Should an unforeseen circumstance occur (we are located in Florida; hurricanes CAN happen) that would extend this period, we will contact you to confirm you still wish to have the item. Before finalizing your purchase, make sure that the shipping address is correct. If an error in address occurs and the order is returned to us, the buyer will be responsible for reshipping charges. Of course, if we make the error, we will correct it at our expense.

Please be aware that once a package has been turned over to the United States Postal Service, we are no longer the owners and may not file a claim of any sort. The Kristin Omdahl Company cannot be responsible for lost packages or delays, though we will try to assist in any capacity we can.  We DO offer optional Signature Required shipping services, at an additional fee.  Should you have concerns about potential losses, this may be the safest option.

How long will it take for me to receive my order?

Most domestic orders are delivered within 7 to 10 business days for domestic orders; often must more rapidly! Keep in mind that mail delays are an occasional  fact of life; then can happen. Unfortunately, we have no control over the Postal Service, and have no information beyond the tracking provided by them.

What if I want to return my order? 

You may return your order within ten days of receipt. Please contact us at 239.315.3729 for an RMA number. You must pay the return shipping shipping cost, and return the items in their original packaging, undamaged and unused. Once the item(s) have been confirmed received and in the proper condition, a refund will be issued. To avoid any issues, please review your order and look over your item(s) as soon as you receive them. Our ten day refund period is firm.  Returned items are to be sent to:

Returns based on customer error are not provided. 

This yarn looked different to me when I was ordering it. Why did that happen?

There are many reasons this may have occurred. First, computer monitors display colors differently so the yarn may have appeared quite different. While this difference is usually fairly minimal, sometimes it can be more pronounced. Secondly, part of the beauty and charm of hand dyed yarn is the variation and nuance. Even yarn dyed in the same batch or dye bath can have subtle or not-so-subtle differences. This is part of the personality of artisan hand-dyed yarn and is usually treasured.  I hope you will love the yarn you ordered.  If you are unhappy, you may return it (unused), within 10 days, at your own expense.

ACK! The color in my yarn is running! What do I do?

We dye our yarn with professional grade dyes, and rinse repeatedly to avoid any bleeding later. However, on occasion a particularly pigmented yarn can sometimes bleed a little. We recommend hand washing all of your handmade items knits in cold water with a Wrapture and laying flat to dry.
