Shopping & Products
Will my yarn order come from the same dye lot?
Whenever possible, we will put together orders from the same dye lot. If we don’t have the quantity you ordered in a single dye lot, we will contact you to discuss options. If it is a regularly stocked yarn, we may backorder the yarn and fill your order when new stock arrives to maintain a uniform dye lot. This may not be possible with some yarns
How do I purchase and/or redeem gift cards?
Gift cards can be purchased here or in the store. To redeem your gift card online, have your gift card handy and follow the steps at check-out. To redeem in the store, we will scan your card at check-out.
What does it mean if my item is backordered?
If an item is back-ordered, it is not in our stock. We will work with you and the yarn companies to order your items as soon as possible, or find a suitable replacement. We recommend buying extra for projects to avoid the risk of dye lots changing or colorways and bases no longer being available if you run short
Can I purchase patterns through your store via Ravelry?

Yes! Purchasing patterns through our shop on Ravelry helps support our store and we sincerely appreciate it. Visit our store page here:–the-frog—yarn-shop. Click “buy in store” to purchase through our shop.

Can I purchase Ravelry patterns through your store?
Yes! When we purchase patterns for you through Ravelry it helps support our store and we sincerely appreciate it. We will print your pattern and send it to your Ravelry library – just tell us your Ravelry username.

Or you can send back any unused yarn in its original condition with a copy of your invoice within 30 days to:

Tink & The Frog – Returns
117 N Main St.
Adrian, MI 49221

Please note that yarn which has been wound cannot be returned, as it is not in its original condition.

What is your return policy?

Unused items in their original condition can be returned in store or through the mail within 30 days of purchase with receipt or invoice. Clearanced items, books, magazines and patterns are not returnable.

Classes & Events

Yarn used for classes and events must be purchased in the shop. Some classes include the cost of supplies. For those which do not, we offer a 10% discount for the yarn used for a class.
How do I find out what’s new at the shop?

Our Events Calendar lists all of our classes, social stitching and events. You can also subscribe to our email list.

Is there drop-in social stitching?
Social stitching is listed in our Events Calendar, but you are always welcome to drop in and stitch outside of those hours!
Can kids learn how to knit or crochet?
Yes! A good rule of thumb: when children learn to tie their shoes they are probably ready to learn to knit or crochet. A child’s individuality is also important. Can they sit still? Focus and persist at a new task?
What is your class cancellation policy?
If for some reason your class is canceled, we will work with you to find another class. If no suitable class can be found, we will refund your money.

Sample time!

Spring is just around the corner, and this adorable Kelsey Dress is the perfect knit for the little girl in your life! Michelle used one just one skein of Recycled Tweed by @queenslandcollection for the smallest size and had leftovers! Sized for ages 12 months - 6 years, this cute little dress is perfect for spring or paired with a shirt and leggings on chillier days. Recycled Tweed is a DK-weight yarn made of 100% recycled materials, making it an earth-friendly and pretty choice.

We have lots of choices that work with this great little pattern. In addition to Recycled Tweed, Michelle recommends Malabrigo Arroyo or Plymouth Dreambaby.
