Please verify that your shipping address is correct at checkout. Yarnworker cannot be held responsible for mis-delivered packages.

Physical items will ship within 3 business days of payment, excluding U.S. holidays, and any periods of time when we are traveling. These dates will be posted on the checkout landing page.

Items are shipped via USPS First Class, or Priority mail for packages over 13 ounces. The shopping cart is automatically configured to give you the actual price for combined shipments.

When your package is shipped, you will be sent a tracking number via email. Please retain this information for your records.

Note that we are required by law to list the contents and actual value for international shipments. Please take into account your country’s customs fees, as we cannot alter this information.

The shipping landscape is constantly changing and we do our best to get physical products to you at a reasonable cost and at a reasonable time with the resources available to us.


If you are dissatisfied with your product, please contact us at [email protected]. Yarnworker accepts returns/exchanges with no questions asked within two weeks of purchase. After this time, you may receive store credit.

Affiliate Links

This site occasionally uses affiliate links for products we feel will benefit your rigid-heddle life. These links are clearly marked. When you click on these links and make a purchase, a small portion of that sale comes back to Yarnworker. If a link it is not marked it is not an affiliate link.

Mailing List

We maintain a mailing list via Mailchimp, a third-party service. Via this list, we send a monthly newsletter, periodic updates, and optional notices of your choosing.

You can opt in or out of this newsletter any time by clicking here.


We maintain a Patreon community for weavers who wish to support the ongoing efforts of hosting an online rigid-heddle weaving school. When you sign up for Patreon, you also must create a separate user account. You can set your preferences as to how you would like to be notified via that site.

Please use the same email you used to sign up for Patreon to create an account at the Yarnworker School or vice versa. This way, your benefits can be automatically populated to your personal school dashboard.

Yarnworker Website

The Yarnworker Website is hosted on another platform where you have the option to create a separate user account. This account is not linked to your School or Patreon account. It is solely used to remember your purchase from the Yarnworker Shop and communicate with you regarding your purchase. The Yarnworker blog and other community resources are also located on the website.
