We aren't picky. Choose your favorite: Shop Pay, PayPal, Google Pay, Venmo, Meta Pay, Amazon Pay, Visa, MasterCard, and American Express.
Can you ship to APO and FPO addresses?
We ship everywhere deliveries are made, but only offer free shipping for orders that meet our dollar criteria within the USA.
When will I receive my order?
When you place an order for accessories or in-stock yarn, it will normally ship within 1-2 business days. Custom yarn or pre-orders can take up to 5-7 business days to create and ship, depending on how much yarn we need to hand dye. We do our best to get things completed as fast as possible. When you receive it, of course, depends on all the things we just mentioned, plus the shipping method you select. Standard shipping in the USA is FREE on all orders $35 and over!
Orders may be canceled if it occurs prior to shipment.
Typically shipment happens within 5 business days, though some products that are made to order take longer -- affected shipping times are noted on relevant product pages. Please contact us as soon as possible to request an order change or cancellation. Include your order number, full name, or shipping address in your email so we can identify your order quickly.
What is your return policy?
We stand behind all of our products, however we understand that sometimes things just don't work out. If you are looking to make a return with us, don't worry – we want this to be as easy and painless as ordering from us. You have 30 days to return for any reason, and if you paid for the initial shipping, we'll pay for the return. If you got free shipping, we'll charge you a small fee based on our commercial shipping rates. Either way, we'll send you a label to print and affix to your package.
When will I receive my refund?
Once we receive your package and confirm its condition, we will refund you within seven business days. Please note that your bank may require additional time to process and post the transaction, so the credit may not show up immediately on your statement.
Do I need to create an account to place an order?
No. You can place an order as a guest without creating an account.
Why should I create an account?
To make your life easier. For example, with an account you'll enjoy:
- Quicker checkout. All of your information is already saved. What could be easier?
- Order Tracking: Easily monitor the status of your order.
- Address book. Save shipping addresses for yourself, your friends and your family in your personal address book and avoid having to enter in their info each time you send a gift.
- See your order history. Save a full listing of your previous purchases. (So you can re-order exactly the right thing, stat.)
- Stay in-the-know. Get updates, discounts and yarnie blog posts. We'll email you periodically with updates on what's new. We make un-subscribing as easy as one-click, too.

Let customers speak for us
Fun to use. Shipped quickly
This is my first time to use Global Backyard’s bulky yarn and I love it. The 100% Superwash Merino Wool is so soft and has a beautiful natural sheen. At first I thought the yarn would be slippery, like silk yarns; but to my delight it was not slippery and just so easy to work with. I will definitely continue to support Global Backyard. P.S. I have also used their sock yarn base and that is also a dream to use. You will not be disappointed. I look forward to my future yarn selections and projects with both yarn bases. Thank you Global Backyard!
5 stars review from Ashley
I’m really enjoying journaling my knitting projects this year in this new notebook. It will keep me organized chronologically and it will be helpful when I reach the point of creating a ravelry project entry. I especially like the fact it opens up flat.
I will be pairing this skein with other skeins for a Stephen West shawl this spring. The base is wonderful and I will enjoy knitting with it again..
5 stars review from Kathryn
I haven’t had time to knit with this yet, but I have a project in mind for this summer. This checks all the boxes for a shawl I have my eye on, and I know the base will be perfect because I’ve knit with it before!
Great stitch markers at a great price. Shipped quickly. Thank you.
Very soft yarn and pretty colors.
Bought these for my knitting friend and she loved them. It was carefully packaged and shipped quickly. The counters themselves were so cute, as was their little carrying case.
Super cute and look amazing when taking pictures of my WIPs
These are amazing, I can't wait to use them on my next project.
These are absolutely adorable stitch marks! Red heart tin container is just too cute…Love it! Quality is top notch!
The Extrafine Merino Sock yarn is the softest, finest yarn I have worked with! I absolutely Love It!
This little tin is sooo cute, the markers are lovely and the international shipping was pretty fast, even during the holidays.
