Yarn Winding Service

We will continue to offer free winding service for items purchased at Cloverhill.  However, we think it is important for you to be aware of the time and effort associated with winding yarns.  If you would like to make a donation towards winding services - either directly related to your winding request, or to help offset and support the continuation of our winding services - we will gladly accept any amount you feel happy to contribute.


Time/Labor Estimates for Winding are based on yardage per skein, thickness, and type of yarn in question.  We all know that some yarns just require more time and attention.

  •          Estimate 30 seconds to 1 minute are necessary to get a skein situated on the swift and ready to be wound.
  •          Estimate no less than 1 minute of winding is required for every 100 yards (approx. 100 meters) of yarn.
  •          Thin, slippery, hairy, or textured yarns absolutely require additional time and care.
  •          We can usually have your yarn wound in 2 days or less, but winding completion dates/times are estimates and subject to delay. 
  •          Critical shop tasks, the ebb and flow of customers in the shop, and winding requests already in the queue may interrupt yarn winding.

Effective Monday, November 14, 2022, Cloverhill Yarn Shop will charge a winding fee for all out of house yarns. 
$1.00 each for skein 599 yards or less. 
$2.00 each for skeins 600 yards or more. 
Please note that the fee only offsets a portion of the time and costs associated with winding yarn for you.  It is still a bargain.  After all ….

         How much is your time worth to you? 
How much is our time worth to you?
                       The answer should be the same for both questions.
