Order minimums require two of each colorway for wool & silk blends (any yarn/fiber combination) with a minimum total order of $200 before shipping.

Cotton colorways require a minimum of four skeins per colorway (you can mix and match fingering/dk) and a $100 minimum cotton product order. Cottons can be ordered alone or in combination with wool & silk blend yarns as long as the cotton minimum is met.


Shipping is estimated within the shop software and doesn't do a great job judging volume vs. dimensions. If there is a significant overcharge on shipping vs. actual cost when we ship, we will refund the difference. All orders are shipped insured. Any request to cancel and refund the cost of insurance prior to shipping will be at the customer's risk.


Payment is due at the time your order is placed. Orders cancelled after confirmation is made but before dyed will be subject to a 5% cancellation fee. Orders cancelled after dyed but before the order ships will be subject to a 25% restocking fee. Payment may be made with a PayPal account or credit card.

Custom Colorways

If you are interested in having a colorway developed, please email to discuss the possibilities. NGY reserves the right to bring custom colorways to festivals in which we vend that are in different regional areas than the shop that the custom colorway belongs to. Custom colorways will remain exclusive to the LYS for six months unless the shop has discussed longer terms with us.

The process to design custom colorways will take at least four weeks. We will send you our design for approval.

Order Completion Times

All yarns are dyed to order. Orders can take an average of 4 to 6 weeks depending on the size of your order. Your order may take longer if you are having custom colorways designed, if your order contains special order bases, or if your order exceeds 150 items.

While we try to keep our bare yarn stock levels high enough for most orders if you are planning to place a large order please contact to ensure stock is available or that we can order it in a reasonable time to complete your order. If you are placing a small order as a rush per customer request please contact us in advance to find out our current order volume.
