Note about hand-painted yarns: These skeins are dyed by hand and may vary in colour and/or intensity from skein to skein, even within the same dye lot. Colours viewed on different monitors may have shade and tone differences from the actual product.
Pre-orders! Every now and then, we get an opportunity to offer you something special; something that we're not able to stock on a regular basis. We call this a pre-order. Because the product isn't in the shop, you can "pre-order" it and when it comes in, it's yours! Like all good things, pre-orders may take their sweet time in arriving and will hold up the rest of your order. For this reason, pre-orders are best made as an individual order.
If you're making an order for local pickup, where shipping isn't an issue, please consider placing one order for your "pre-order" only and another order for anything else that is already in stock. This way, you will be notified as soon as we fulfill the order with the in-stock items and you can come by and pick it up.
For orders which require shipping, we suggest placing one order to include both pre-order and in-stock items and waiting until the pre-order items arrive at River City Yarns. Once we have everything for your order, we will ship it all together. If you need in-stock items to arrive sooner, please place two separate orders. It's going to cost more in shipping but you'll have what you need, when you need it.
