Terms & Conditions

  • Touch and Touch Yarns are the trading names for Touch Yarns (2016) Ltd. These names are protected by copyright.
  • When shopping with Touch Yarns you accept our terms and conditions.
  • Our website is owned by Touch Yarns and all content on this site including pictures are the property of Touch Yarns and are protected by copyright.
  • We do our best to convey true and accurate colours on our site but colours will differ on different computers. We cannot guarantee they are 100% accurate.
  • Each batch of wool is slightly different from the next and it is very important that you use wool from the same batch in a project.
  • Hand dyed skeins are each unique and can vary dramatically, even when they are from the same dyebath. When using more than one hand dyed skein in a garment or project you need to blend the skeins by knitting two rows from each skein alternately (or choose two skeins and blend these, then move on to blending the other two).
  • Hand dyed skeins may contain areas of non-dyed wool or dripped or splattered colours. This is the charm and unique nature of hand dyed yarns and does not constitute a fault.
  • Always roll your Touch yarn skein into a ball before beginning to knit.
  • Some skeins or balls of Touch wool contain knots or joins. This is normal and industry standards allow for 3 knots or joins per 100g. We think this is too many. If you find MORE than one knot per 100g then we would like to know.
  • Please take extra care when washing. Always check wool labels for washing instructions and follow carefully.
  • Please allow for some dropping of fluff. Possum and mohair yarns can shed a little during knitting and for the first few wears. This is normal and will subside. A gentle wash can help settle any shedding.
  • Some dark shades my leave some colour on hands or needles during knitting. This is quite normal and will subside after a gentle wash. Once your garment is complete, use an approved liquid wool wash to rinse your completed garment and set the colour.
  • Touch Yarns patterns are written specifically for our wool. It is important that you use the wool specified.
  • If you have purchased your Touch product from a stockist OTHER THAN this website or our Clyde store and you wish to discuss a problem or issue with your Touch product then you need to contact the store from where your yarn was purchased.
  • Returns and exchanges are not accepted unless the wool is faulty. However, do talk to us. If the yarn is in the perfect condition you received it in, including tidy labels, and is still a current batch, then in most instances we are happy to exchange for another yarn or shade. Return delivery costs and delivery on the exchanged item are the customer’s responsibility.
  • Returns and exchanges can only apply when the yarn was purchased from this website or our Clyde store. Please contact the store from where you purchased the yarn as each store has its own refund and exchange policy.

Sale Items

  • We do not offer refunds on sale items. No returns or exchanges are allowed on sale items unless they are faulty. Please choose carefully.
