Our yarn, while milled in Italy to our specifications, is all skeined, labelled, and packaged here at Sunday Knits. When there's not enough yarn in a length to make a full 50-gram skein, it's used in a 20-gram skein, or a sample skein, for making the colorcards, or it goes into my personal stash. That's why I don't need to use knots. I can't guarantee that you'll never come across an inconspicuous milled splice, but I doubt if you'll ever get a knot.
Sunday Knits skeins are a tidy 54" around (most skeins are bigger) , so even if you don't own a swift, they're really comfortable to work with - they'll fit over your knees, across the arms of a chair, or held up in the hands of a friend.
I would hate for you to feel "stuck" with Sunday Knits yarns, and so offer a liberal return policy: return any unused skeins in original condition for up to a full year from puchase date for a refund, exchange or credit. (Yarn must have been purchased from Sunday Knits - either here at the webstore, at my studio, or a fiber show where we had exhibited, a receipt is required, and patterns and shipping charges are not refundable.)
Care and treatment of yarn
Sunday Knits yarns haven't undergone any additional processing, like superwash. They should be hand washed gently, and laid flat to dry. They will felt nicely, if encouraged to do so.
Care and treatment of sheep
Mulesing is a painful (for the sheep) practice where the sheep's skin is cut in order to obtain more fleece during shearing. I am opposed to this practice, as I'm sure many of you are. And I'm assured by my mill in Italy and our purchasing agents in Australia that only fleece from humanely treated sheep goes into Sunday Knits yarns.
