Buying online

To claim an available gobstopper from the website, send me an email and let me know which ones have caught your eye!  I’m atemail

I need to know:

1. The colour name and base of the cake (or just let me know which base and what it looks like; I’ll confirm with you if there’s any uncertainty).

2. The email address where you want to receive a PayPal invoice.  (I never share your information with anyone other than PayPal.)

3. The complete mailing address, including postal code or ZIP code, where you want your yarn sent.  If you are outside Canada, please include your phone number.  (This is a recent requirement of international shipping with PayPal.)  Again, I never share your information, other than entering it in PayPal to generate an invoice and a shipping label.

Shipping within Canada: Packages within Ontario usually cost about $12 for one or two cakes, including tracking and insurance; shipping to other destinations in Canada is slightly higher.  I’m happy to provide a quote for a package to your location.

Shipping to the US without insurance or tracking is usually $8.75 for one or two cakes or about $12 for three or four.  The time in transit varies from as little as 5 days to as much as 3 weeks.  Please note that shipping without insurance or tracking does carry a small risk; if you’d prefer to follow your package on its way, please email to ask for a shipping quote including insurance and tracking.

Shipping to the rest of the world: I’m happy to ship anywhere that Canada Post and your local postal service will go.  In general, packages to Europe, the UK, and Australia cost $12 for 1-2 gobstoppers and $23 for 3-4 gobstoppers.  These quotes are for air mail, without tracking or insurance; estimated delivery times are 6-12 days (though packages may take longer).  If you prefer to follow your package on its way, or if you’d like an estimate for your specific location, please get in touch by email.  Please remember that there may be additional taxes or duties when you receive your package; I’m not able to provide any information on these, as such charges are up to customs officials in your country.

Note on shipping estimates: Shipping costs listed above and on my invoices are estimates based on quotes from Canada Post’s website.  On rare occasions, the actual shipping costs are slightly less than the Canada Post quote; if I’ve over-charged you by $1 or more, I will refund you the difference via PayPal.  (For some reason, this happens occasionally with packages to locations in Northern & Western Canada.)

    Do you have any yarn available in a sock base in the color mindy?

    • All of the available yarn is posted on my website. With the exception of Starry (aqua to white to yellow), I don’t have any repeatable colourways– every cake is one of a kind.
