Q: How do I know which size crochet hook I will need for any particular size thread?
A: I set out the recommended crochet hook and knitting needle sizes within each listing. However, you need not conform to it.
Q: What if colour(s) I received is different from the picture?
A: It is very highly unlikely that the colour you receive will be different from what you ordered. Nevertheless, you must allow the fact that slight colour variation maybe caused by your monitor settings and your perceptions. The colour names given for each code were assigned by me. They should only be used to aid your selection and nothing else.
Q: How safe are your yarns?
A: Both Circulo and Venus products meet the ISO 9002 Standard. They are safe for making infant's and children's products. They are FREE from the use of lead, flalats, sulphur and Azo on the dyeing process.
