All Butterscotch Blankees knit items are Handcrafted, made to order, one at a time. Your order will be knit by one of our knitters that have many years of experience in handcrafted, personalized knits.  We us only high quality yarns, that are hand dyed for us, in our unique colors.

** **Our system is automated, meaning once you submit the order online we cannot make changes, or add on to the order.  Our system does not allow for us to change designs that are submitted.  Our system does not store your credit card information and therefore we cannot add on to an existing order (this includes gift wrapping).  When placing an order, review your order thoroughly on the Review page, all orders are final/no changes, once you click submit order.   No cancellations once order is in production.** ** (Once an order is in production we cannot take any cancellations, however, if within 24 hours of placing an order, and production has not been started, we may be able to cancel the order (entire order must be cancelled), but no guarantees.  Rush Order are sent to production immdiately and therefore no changes or cancellations can be made.

Please read each designs Product Description: In order to minimize errors:   Enter/Type name, initials, or monogram according to description, and/or case selection, i.e. if description states all lowercase letters only, then please enter the name in all lowercase letters. Or if description states all uppercase, then enter the name or initials in all uppercase (see more below).

****Designs, Lettering , Placement & Spacing are at the discretion of our trained knitters for Butterscotch Blankees)****(see below for explanation)

While we strive to accommodate all names, we do have some guidelines due to the allowable space, as the Names are knit directly onto each design: All Designs are  1 (one) Name only, up to 8 letters allowed on all knit items (Scarfs & Pillows - we may only be able to accommodate up to 6 letters depending on the name).   

**One (1) Name Only means: up to 8 letters , no 2 names even if the total number of letters equals 8, no spaces between names. No 2 capitol letters in one name - mixed case.  

If Product Description states Name:, 1 Name can be up to 8 letters. If 2 names are entered on order, we will by default change the order and only put the first name listed. 

If Product Description states Initials: Initials will be placed in the order you have entered (not in monogram form).  

If Product Description states Initial: this means we only can use One (1) initial on that particular design.  If more than 1 Initial is entered on order, we will by default change the order and only put the first initial entered. 

If Product Description states Monograms: Monograms are always all uppercase, First, Last, Middle initials, with the center letter (last name) larger than the first and middle initial,(with exception of the Poncho, and Stacked Monogram, Monogram is First, Middle, Last). Please type the monogram, and/or initials in all Capitol Letters on the order (please do no use lowercase letters).  

Some designs are "As Shown" on sample, with no font or characterization choice, please type the name according to description.

Name and characterization entered on order will be defaulted to above specifications,and will automatically be changed on the order without email notification.  If you have a questions regarding the personalization on your order, please email us prior to placing your order.

YARN DYE LOTS:  We do not guarantee dye lots on any of our colors, or items within the same order (See bottom of page for Dye Lot Explanation) ( Pillows, hats and blankets can be shipped from different locations). This means that if you order for example a hat, or pillow, and a blanket, the colors can vary slightly, due to different knitters not having the exact same dye lot of yarn. We therefore, cannot guarantee the same dye lot of yarn will be used.  If you are a wholesaler, and have sample blankets, be aware that colors on orders taken may not be the exact colors as on your samples due to different dye lots. Acrylic Yarn Colors do not match Cashmere Yarn Colors.  We do not remake items due to dye lot differences.   Please be aware that different color combinations can make colors look different. Colors choices may look different on final product, as not all monitors show colors the same.

Please choose your colors carefully, Note on the product description of each design, that we will not use Pale Pink with White or Off white, choose Med. Pink.  If you enter Pale Pink we will by default change it to Med. Pink.  **Be aware of your color choices on Low Contrast Colors, for example:  Med. Pink with White or Off White , White with Off White, Pale Yellow with White or Off White are very low contrast color combinations and designs and names may not show as well as the samples (We do not remake an item because of low contrast color choices) .  

A note regarding color selections:  When selecting colors from the Color Palette, Please do not make a color selection from the palette and then in the comments area ask that colors be changed to a color that is not an available choice. Some colors shown on samples may no longer be  available for color selection from our color palette as they have been discontiuned. Our system is an automated system and knitters only see the color choices that are selected from the palette.  If you experience problems selecting a color, please call us before placing an order.

All sizes are approximate, and can vary slightly due to different color combinations, dye lots, and yarn spinning. Because all our knit items are HANDCRAFTED, individually, one at a time, all sizes and measurements listed are APPROXIMATE.

HATS:  Please keep in mind the names on hats.  even though we can accommodate up to 8 letters, longer names will wrap around the brim of the hat, especially on the small size.  Different color combinations can result in items varying in size slightly(up to 1") due to dyes or spinning (Heathered and Dark Base Colors tend to knit slightly smaller/tighter due to the way the yarns are spun and dyed).  This means, for example, that an order with 2 hats, in 2 different color combinations, but ordered the same size, can measure different.  This does not mean they are 2 different sizes. Earflap hats run slightly smaller than Regular Hats.

BLANKETS:  Different color combinations can result in items varying in size slightly (up to 1") due to dyes or spinning (Heathered and Dark Base Colors tend to knit slightly smaller/tighter due they way they are spun and dyed).  

Lettering and placement for your blankets may look different than what is shown on the examples, this is due to the number and particular letters in your chosen name. Letters like "l" and "i" are narrow, while letter "a", "o", and "m"  & "w" are wider.  

 We can not use special characters such as quotation marks, periods, dashes, accent marks, number, "&", etc. (with exception where indicated on designs) .  

Problem on Orders  --  If there is a problem with your order, we will email you alerting to what the problem is.   If the problem indicated is for example,  entering a name where we only use initials, Our system does not allow us to change the chosen design once the order has been placed,  Our only option is to change the name to initials or to cancel the entire order and have you re-order  with the correct information.  We do not send an email for low contrast color choices.   (Please check your Spam box for emails).

Tracker numbers can be entered on our system up to 4 days prior to actual shipping, and/or as late as the 2 business day after the order has shipped (if an order ships out on a Thursday or Friday, trackers may not be entered until the following Monday or Tuesday).  Tracker shipping numbers are emailed automatically (to email given on your account) once the tracker information is entered into our system.

If we have mis-spelled the name, please provide the Order Number, the name on the order, and the mis-spelled name(wrong name)you received ( a picture would be very helpful if possible).   Remakes due to color mistakes are remade in the same colors ordered, no colors changes.  We do not remake an item because of low contrast color choices, ( see above: Med. Pink with White or Off White , White with Off White, Pale Yellow with White or Off White are low contrast color combinations and designs and names may not show as well as the samples.  It is not the responsibility of Butterscotch Blankees to inform you that you have chosen low contrast color combinations),  or for the lettering placement or spacing (see below).

As with any fine quality knit item,  we can not guarantee our knit items against yarn snags/pulls, pilling due to not washing separately (see below under Care Instructions), or fuzzing due to items being stuck to them, such as Velcro from bibs, diaper tabs, car-seat straps, etc.

If you have any questions regarding any of the above, please do not hesitate to email or call us.

 Care Instructions/Yarns                                                                                                                                                                                           100% Acrylic - Wash separately in Cold water, dry on low delicate heat, remove promptly.  (Note that some items in Heathered/Darker Colors may seem rough upon arrival, these will soften after laundering.)  

Cashmere - Hand Wash or Dry Clean for best results, or Machine Wash separately in Cold Water, on Delicate/Hand Wash Cycle. Dry on low delicate heat, until almost dry. Remove promptly.  Our 100% Cashmere Yarns are hand dyed. Cashmere can have the characteristic of lighter and darker areas, which means there can be a slight variation of color through out the yarn.  This does not mean this is an inprefection in the yarn. This is the nature of hand dyed.

Use Fabric Softener sparingly on both Acrylic and Cashmere.  While Fabric Softeners can make knit items feel soft, overtime they can build up on the fibers.

**Butterscotch Blankees is not responsible for items due to improper laundering**  Items will not be remade due to improper laundering.

****Designs, Lettering and Placement are at the discretion of our trained knitters for Butterscotch Blankees****  Designs, lettering, and placement can look slightly different from what the sample pictures look like on our site.  Lettering should not be compared from one sample design to another as lettering can be different in size on each design.  Our graphing software tells us how the letter should be knit on to the design.  We do not remake an items for lettering.

****Wholesale Accounts - We would appreciate if you would, Please make sure to enter Your Name and Company Name in the Billing Details, not your customers information, so that we know who the wholesale account belongs to****

***Pictures on our website are enhanced slightly (close-up) to show the detail.  Designs may very slightly.***

***  Some colors shown on samples may no longer be  available for color selection from our color palette.

Dye Lot Explanation:  All yarn has a dye lot. Yarns are dyed in batches. When a batch is dyed, the dye lot number is assigned. When the next batch is dyed, a new dye lot number is assigned. Even though the same dyes are used, there may be color variations.  If you have one of our color card, or sample blankets (wholesale accounts), this means that the samples that are on your cards or sample blankets, may vary due to dye lot change.
