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 use only high quality yarns, that are hand dyed for us, in our unique colors.
Orders: FAQ's Terms & Condition's Please read this FAQ's Page & the Product Description under chosen Design, prior to placing your order. Due to the Nature of Handcrafting & Designs, All sizes are Approximate. If you experience any problems while trying to place an order, please email or call prior to placing your order. (Wholesale accounts, please see bottom of this page for more information).
** **Our system is automated, meaning once you submit the order online, we cannot make changes, and/or add on/delete 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/delete to an existing order (this includes gift wrapping & Gift Messages). When placing an order, Please review your order thoroughly on the Review page, all orders are Final/no changes can be made, once you click Submit Order. No cancellations once order is in production. ** All orders are Custom knit to order, made one at a time, and non returnable.
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 Butterscotch Blankees****
ENTERING NAME, INITIALS, OR MONOGRAM While we strive to accommodate all names, we do have some guidelines due to the allowable space, as the Name is knit directly into each design: All Designs are ONE Name Only, up to 8 consecutive letters allowed on all knit items (Scarfs & Pillows - we may only be able to accommodate up to 6 letters depending on the name).
**We can accommodate one name only - up to 8 consecutive letters, no 2 names - (no spaces between names. No two capitol letters in one name in mixed case).
If Product Description states Name:, One Name can be up to 8 consecutive letters. (If 2 names are entered on order, we will by default change the order and only put the first name listed without notification.)
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 without notification.)
If Product Description states Monograms: Monograms, 3 Letters only, 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). In order to minimize mistakes, Please enter/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 enter/type the name according to product description.
As a suggestion, Script Fonts such as Amelia, and Corinthia do not look good in All Uppercase, however, if you choose all uppercase we will do it that way. Also note that some names, depending on the length and letter combinations can be harder to read on knits in script fonts.
Name and characterization entered on order form will be defaulted to above specifications, and will automatically be changed on the order without email notification. Check your order carefully, Read the Product Description on how names, initials and monograms should be entered/typed. If you have a questions regarding the personalization on your order, please email us PRIOR to placing your order.
LOW CONTRAST COLORS: 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. Even though we will default with the Med. Pink it is still considered a low contrast color combination. Other low contrast combinations are: White with Off White, Pale Yellow with White or Off White, Fushia with Mulberry, and designs and names may not show as well as the sample on the selected design. (We do not remake an item due to low contrast color choices) .
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 one of our wholesalers, and have sample items, 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.
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 discontinued. 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 contact us prior to placing an order.
Because all our knit items are HANDCRAFTED, individually, one at a time, all sizes and measurements listed are APPROXIMATE, and size variances can occur due to different design, color combinations, dye lots, and yarn spinning.
STROLLER SIZE BLANKETS: Some baby/stroller designs vary slightly from our Large blankets due to their size and allowable space. Some design we can only accommodate an initial(s) where we show a name on the larger size. This will be indicated in the Product Description.
PILLOWS: Pillows are listed as 15x15 & 20x20 as this is the size pillow form(s) we use. Actual finished outside measurement will be slightly smaller so that the cover fits snugly around the forms.
HATS: Please keep in mind the names on hats. Even though we can accommodate up to 8 letters, longer names will wrap around the entire 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/Charcoal and Dark Base Colors can knit slightly smaller/tighter due to the way the yarns are spun and dyed and thus have less stretch to them). This means, for example, an order with 2 hats, in 2 different color combinations, but ordered the same size, can measure differently. This does not mean they are 2 different sizes. Earflap hats run slightly smaller than Regular Hats.
Sizing Guidelines: children's head sizes vary so please select size carefully.
Because our hats are handcrafted, slight size variances can occur due to designs
and yarn color choices.
Small - Usually fits most 6m - 1 years, approximately 17 inch circumference.
Medium - Usually fits most 2 - 4 years, approximately 20 inch circumference
Large - 5+ and up (up to teen), approximately 22 inch circumference.
**Head Circumference is not the measurement of the hat, but with stretch of the
knit, should fit a head up to that size.
**Regular hats have sightly more stretch/give than earflap hats.
BLANKETS: Approx. 36x53 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). Cashmere Blankets approx.35x50
BABY BLANKETS (STROLLERS): Approx 22x30
Lettering and placement for your blankets may look different than what is shown on the samples. 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 (with exception where we default the order without notification). 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). If we do not receive a reply within 1 day (24 hours) of our email, we will proceed with the order at our discretion and place the order into production.
If you inform us after your order has been placed that you have entered the name or initials incorrectly on your order and production has already started, there will be an Up Charge to stop production, for materials and design time. Please review your order on the reveiw order page, prior to selecting "Submit Order".

Remakes due to color mistakes are remade in the same colors ordered, no colors changes. Remakes for orders which we have made an error on are generally reshipped within 4 business days. If an item is returned to us to look at, we reserve the right to repair, or remake. Please check your order once received, as we will only honor remake for orders we have made a mistake on 30 Days after delivery. We can 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), We do not remake items for the lettering placement or spacing (see below). Customer is responsible for all shipping charges.
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 looks 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, unless it is the wrong letter.
****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****
***Some Pictures shown on our site may be from Designs that may have been discountinued and are for representation only. Please refer to Product Description on each Design as to allowable name or monogram. Pictures on our website may be slightly enhanced (close-up) to show the detail. Designs and/or Name may very slightly.***
*** Some colors shown on samples may no longer be available for color selection from our color palette as they have been discontinued.
YARN DYE LOTS: We do not guarantee dye lots on any of our colors, or items within the same order. All yarn has a dye lot number. 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 changes.
