It’s funny how basic string marketed/sold for multiple purposes, all looks and works well for so many other purposes... we love this new old stock carpet yarn for securing products for shipping and gift giving... choosing this post-consumer-sourced product (instead of buying brand new twine) means avoiding the creation of manufacturing demand and related emissions. These are synthetic yarns - best suited to purposes that don't involve frequent laundering.

When you purchase this item, you’ll receive ten yards in the color of your choice. We will package it in 100% secondhand-sourced shipping materials and send it to you via ground shipping.

Makes a great gift wrap accompaniment to our (sewing) pattern tissue paper packs!

    This is climate-competent commerce, and we talk a bit more about each of these strategies on our 'official' shipping policy page:

    The Fine Print 
  • Proactive Satisfaction + Refunds

    We have adopted a 'generally generous' approach to fulfilling many of our product listings, as sending a wee bit extra can avoid costly errors & 'fix it' shipments (besides, we find most folks appreciate the occasional freebie).


    That said, if you would prefer to avoid the extras, we will gladly rightsize or downsize your order on request (product price would remain the same because more labor + less product = wash). If you prefer this option, please include a detailed order note to specify the quantity you wish to recieve (i.e. 'please send precise count of 7 for XYZ product').


    As a rule, we discourage returns - but we also don't abide crappy customer experiences. To initiate issue resolution in the event that we miss the boat with your order (gaps happen!), head to our refund policy page (linked here - and at the bottom of any page) to get started.
