About Color and Samples
We spend a lot of time trying to make sure that our pictures are as accurate as possible. However, please remember that computer monitor settings vary and may display colors differently.
If you’re curious about the exact color and feel of a yarn, you can ask us for a free sample. Just send a self-addressed stamped envelope to us with your requests included and we’ll send them on out to you. You may request up to five samples free of charge. If you would like more than five samples, please include a check to cover the additional samples. Additional samples are $1.00 for two. We are unable to offer samples for the following products: Midnightsky Sock, Be Sweet Magic Balls.
Shipping and Returns
Please visit our
shipping and returns page to read our policies.
We love gifts and if your order is a gift for someone else, we’ll gift wrap it for free. To get free gift wrap just put the recipients address in the shipping address section of the checkout page, and use the gift message box to write a message to your recipient. We’ll wrap everything up in tissue and include a card with your message. The receipt for the order will be sent to you separately.
We also offer free ball-winding. Just send us an email after placing your order. Please be aware that if we wind your yarn into a center pull ball, it cannot be returned.
Yarn of the Week
Every week we feature a particular yarn in a particular color at 35% off, just for that week only. Announcements about which yarn is featured each week go out on Wednesdays, and each yarn is on sale only from that Thursday at 10:00 AM PST to the following Thursday at the same time. Only current inventory is eligible for the sale. Want to sign up for the announcements? Sign up to follow us on twitter!
We’re a small online only yarn store located on Bainbridge Island, just outside of Seattle, WA. Verra Yarns came about because we wanted to focus on high quality natural, ecologically and socially conscious fibers. We’ve searched the world for great products that meet these requirements, because we believe that knitters want to know the stories behind the products that they purchase and use.
1% of annual sales is given to a designated non-profit. The non-profit for 2008 is Heifer International, and our donation will be going towards knitting baskets.
Verra Yarns is also a member of 1% For The Planet, which means we give an additional 1% of sales to environmental causes. 1% For The Planet is an alliance of businesses that understand the necessity of protecting our environment and are concerned about the social and environmental impacts of industry.
