We are OPEN and shipping orders
We are knitters and we know how important our craft is to us during difficult times. Please be assured we are doing all we can to remain open and safe.
Extra care with staff: Now that we've moved to our new location we have room for everyone who needs to come into work, to come in, without staggering shifts like we did before. When we can work from home we continue to do so.
Hygiene: Constant hand washing as well as regular cleaning at the beginning and end of shifts of all high-touch surfaces in and around packing stations including door handles, light switches and other highly used areas.
Yarn is safe: We are now wearing gloves when handling your orders but we believe the virus does not last long on materials such as wool.
Our yarn supply is good (for the most part): We continue to receive our stock orders with only intermittent delays from overseas. Most mills and vendors have been affected by Covid and are working with reduced staff but are working around the clock to make up for lost time. We are very grateful to those hard working people who know how important our yarn is to us! You should be able to access what you need from us but if not, let us know.
Packages in the mail:
From the US Postal Service's website:
...according to the World Health Organization, “the likelihood of an infected person contaminating commercial goods is low and the risk of catching the virus that causes COVID-19 from a package that has been moved, travelled, and been exposed to different conditions and temperature is also low.” And according to the CDC, “in general, because of poor survivability of these coronaviruses on surfaces, there is likely very low risk of spread from products or packaging that are shipped over a period of days or weeks at ambient temperatures. Coronaviruses are generally thought to be spread most often by respiratory droplets.” Currently there is no evidence to support transmission of COVID-19 associated with imported goods and there have not been any cases of COVID-19 in the United States associated with imported goods.”
