DY Online

DY Online

We are thrilled to announce our beta release of Dartmouth Yarns Online.  Our goal is to provide all the pleasures of a visit to your favourite local yarn shop--that would be Dartmouth Yarns, of course--with the convenience of online shopping.

The site is fully operational, but "beta" means we are still adding products and features. We need your input and suggestions to help us get everything just right.

Boxing Week specials continue on DYOnline through January 2.  In addition, with the code SHIPFREE entered at check-out, you will receive free shipping on your order over $25 through Jan. 2.  But there's more...provide us with comments or suggestions about DYOnline in the final check-out window, and we'll email you a 10%-off coupon code for online shopping Jan. 3 - Jan. 31!

Find Dartmouth Yarns Online via our website, DartmouthYarns.com. Click on the banner link Shop Dartmouth Yarns Online Now (in red) on the homepage or follow the link on the Products page. This will take you directly to DYOnline (see the image above). To view products available (so far), click on a Featured Product image, click on a category from the menu bar at the top or on the left side of the page, or click the magnifying glass at the very top right to start a search for a particular item.

For now, Perqs are not earned on DYOnline purchases, neither can filled Perqs cards or gift cards be redeemed. We are working on both of these issues, and we appreciate your patience.
