I can make these tiebacks in any of the Country Loom colors I use. Please contact me if you'd like a different color and I can email photos or send links to some of my other listings to show colors within a certain color range.
I can make tiebacks using almost any of the yarns I currently use for my scarves and neck warmers. If you browse my shop and find a color you like, please send me a message to discuss the possibilities. The ones that work best are the "wilder" types of bulky yarns, such as Country Loom, Light N Lofty and Homespun Thick N Quick, but I can also use double strands of any of the thinner yarns to make a substantial tieback that isn't too thin. Prices may vary depending on the yarn used.
The tiebacks in the photos are shades of black, dark gray and tan/beige, meaning they can coordinate with many colors of curtains. In the pictures, they are set against solid black polyester curtains. I imagine they would look great against any light or dark tans, browns, black, and white. The yarn company very accurately calls the color "Weathered Rock."
Each tieback has a crocheted loop integrated into each end. The tieback is placed around the curtain and then the loops are hooked onto a small nail or cup hook (or any hook of your choice, hooks/nails are not included in this listing.). These small loops allow the tiebacks to conform and blend with the curtain and wall really well.
I used a fun, bulky, “wild” yarn for these tiebacks. It’s thick, strong, and extremely soft.
SIZING & QUANTITY:
The tiebacks pictured are 18.5 inches/47 cm long, 1.75 inches/4.5 cm wide and almost ½ inch/1 cm thick. As with all crocheted pieces, these tiebacks will have a little "give" or stretch. I can also make these in any custom size (pricing will increase a little for larger sizes). The easiest way to determine what size tieback you need is to wrap a tape measure around your curtains, gathering the curtain until you get the look you want. The measurement should reflect the length starting from the hook/nail, around the curtain, and then back to that same hook/nail. The thickness of your curtains/drapes will make a big difference in determining how long tiebacks should be, so measuring is always a good idea. The 18.5 inch tiebacks are designed for lightweight panels about 30-45 inches wide.
I can also make these wider or narrower if you’d prefer. Once again, feel free to send me a message if you’d like specific dimensions.
I can also make any number of tiebacks you may need. For example, if you have a total of six panels in one room and would like matching tiebacks for all of them, that’s no problem. Just message me with your situation and we’ll talk it over.
YARN CONTENT & CARE: Acrylic. wash warm, gentle cycle. Tumble dry low. Do not over dry. I recommend washing in a lingerie bag. Avoid washing and drying with anything that may cause friction or snag loops, such as zippers and buttons. These tiebacks are also small enough to easily hand-wash to keep the yarn looking new, which is what I would always recommend for all knit and crocheted items.
I keep shipping to a minimum and offer First Class Package as the best value for price & speed. For Ready to Ship items, I'll ship within two business days. For items made to order, I'll ship as soon as I have the item finished (within the time-frame stated in the listing title). I use the PyaPal shipping system whenever possible, so you will be provided with a delivery confirmation number by email from PayPal and/or ArtYah. Most First Class packages take two to five days to be delivered.
I always combine shipping for multiple orders. I most commonly use USPS First Class International for shipping outside of the US. First Class International may take a longer time to arrive, but it's much more affordable than Priority International (which usually runs $20 or more for a few ounces). Delivery time for international packages is usually 5 to 15 business days. Customs, bad weather, or national holidays can sometimes slow down a package with the occasional shipment taking around 30 days to arrive. This only happens to about 5% of my international shipments. (:
In the last four years, USPS has raised prices significantly for First Class International, in some cases more than doubling the amount they used to charge before 2013. On a positive note, as part of that price increase, they include tracking and delivery confirmation as part of the First Class service for almost all the countries I ship to.
To keep shipping costs down, I will use lightweight polymer shipping envelopes as often as possible. For multiple items, I may find a cardboard box is best.
International Buyers Please Note: Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying.
I accept PayPal. If you don't have a PayPal account, you will still be able to pay with a credit or debit card through PayPal. You can also pay from your bank account using an E-check (also through the PayPal system), but I won't be able to ship until the check has cleared, PayPal says it's okay to ship and allows me to print out a label.
For now, I am not accepting returns, but am completely open to resolving any problems that may occur. I feel the best strategy is to head off any problems before they even happen. If you have any questions whatsoever about any items I am selling, please ask.
Thanks for looking!
