MATERIALS & CONSTRUCTION: Who would think a scarf would need to be durable? I do! My own scarf has lasted through dozens of trail expeditions crossing through thorn, river and mud. The nipples have been pulled and twisted and even bitten so hard that yarn fuzz was left in the biters teeth. It's been washed over and over and has endured and looks still looks great!
I make every scarf with only 100% quality anti-pill fleece with no horizontal seams across the scarf. The anti-pill fleece has a slight "brushed" look to it. Each boob has an handmade pillow insert that I stuff with precisely weighed plush poly-fill and sew closed. I hand knit the nipples using 100% durable and washable super-wash wool and machine sew them securely to the scarf. All materials are new.
SHIPPING & ETA: Each scarf is individually packaged and comes with an info card (not gift wrapped, but in it's own sleeve). At times these scarves are made to order; however US residents can still expect to receive their scarf within 10 days of ordering. Orders shipped outside of the country will take longer as it will have to pass through customs; this can be anywhere from 10 business days to several months - usually it's just a couple of weeks tops though. Delivery confirmation is available to US residents only. All international orders are subject to import fees which are fees levied by your own country.
SIZE: 5’ long (1.67 yd) 4.25" wide around neck (10.79 cm) 4.4 ounces (1/4 of a pound) (125 grams). Because this item is handmade a slight variance between scarves can be expected. I make each scarf with utmost care.
CARE: Machine wash cool. No Bleach. Tumble dry low and remove promptly. No need to iron. It will not shrink.
♦ All items are made in my smoke-free, pet-free, perfume-free shop.
Copying the Neck Knockers Boob Scarf name or design for commercial use is prohibited.
I've donated $974.19 through 4/27/12 ~ More about the Donations...
A portion of the proceeds is donated toward breast cancer initiatives with the sale of every scarf. A minimum of $2 per scarf sold is donated.
WHERE DO MY DONATIONS GO? Here are a couple links showing donations made by me, Marlene Dysert / DetroitKnitter to breast cancer research through the sale of this scarf and other online pink ribbon related items.
I make and sell this scarf because it's a funny scarf. In addition, every year I raise hundreds of dollars, volunteer, and participate in events that benefit breast cancer research. I'm donating a portion of the proceeds of this scarf because I want to. I am not affiliated with Karmanos, Susan G Komen, Race for the Cure or any other cancer related or fund-raising organization.

CUSTOMIZED ORDERS: If you would like scarves in custom colors or different nipple size/color convo me. I do require a minimum order of 3 scarves for custom fleece colors, but different nipple colors can be made to order. I can happily make custom tags with a club name, date, saying, "in memory of...", etc for orders of 3 or more. I can create a special order listing just for you based on your needs.
Rest Of The World
I generally ship the next business day. Larger orders will take a bit longer to complete as these scarves are sometimes made to order. US shipments can expect their order to be delivered within 7 days of ordering. International shipments can be slow; delivery can be from as little as 10 business days to over a month due to customs (usually it gets there in about 2 weeks though). I ship through the USPS mail system and primarily ship First Class Mail or Priority as the weight of the order necessitates. Delivery Confirmation is available for US orders only - no tracking is available for international orders.

PAYMENT - PAYPAL
I accept payment through PayPal. This is probably self explanatory and at this time my preferred payment choice; if you need assistance please contact me.
PAYMENT - CREDIT CARDS
CREDIT CARDS can be used through PayPal without setting up an account - on the payment screen you will see a choice to pay by credit card rather than PayPal. PayPal is the "host" for the Credit Card payment.
At this time I can only accept credit card payments routed through PayPal.
PAYMENT - ECHECK / MONEY ORDERS / PERSONAL CHECKS
If you pay via eCheck, money order or personal check I will ship your purchase when the payment clears which is generally 5 days after payment is made/received and notification has been given that the check has cleared. If you prefer another mode of payment, check the "other box" and contact me!
Money orders and personal checks are to be made out to Marlene Dysert and mailed to:
911 Ashland Street
Detroit, MI 48215-2992
For further assistance, please contact me at DetroitKnitter@Gmail.com
TAX - MICHIGAN RESIDENTS
A 3% tax fee will be added to your order. I will cover the other 3% on my end. I didn't feel it fair that MI residents bear the burden of the whole tax but I don't want to raise my listed prices to take taxes into consideration. I feel the 50/50 approach works best. Thanks for your understanding!
IMPORT FEES / CUSTOMS BROKERAGE FEES
Import/custom taxes or duties are the responsibility of the receiver. I do not collect any customs charges when sending packages. Any customs fees, taxes, tariffs, duties, etc. that may be incurred at the time of import/delivery would be at the discretion of your country's tax regulations and are your responsibility. For any additional information, direct questions to your local customs agency before you make a purchase. I will ship internationally only by USPS to avoid large brokerage charges on the receiving end. I mark packages properly for purchased merchandise and will not ship as a "gift" as this is against the law. Delays at import customs are not uncommon and I have no control over any resulting inconvenience from them.
Please be patient, as international shipment may take as little as one week or as much as two months on rare occasions! Delays are to be expected during higher-volume mailing periods, such as the Christmas shopping season.
SHIPPING - ADDRESS CORRECTIONS
I ship to the address provided to me by PayPal when you complete your purchase; contact me right away if you need to ship to a different address (because I sometimes ship super-crazy-fast). I may contact you if I'm alerted by the Post Office that your address does not jive with what they think your address/zip code should be. I WILL NOT SHIP if there is an error in your submitted mailing address that I do not feel comfortable fixing for you. In most cases, the Post Office kicks back addresses with small errors like "North Elm St." and the Post Office only recognizes "N Elm Street" - I will make simple changes like this. If you have the wrong zip code for your address; I'll most likely be contacting you.
Orders returned due to an incorrect address will be resent or cancelled. Additional shipping costs to resend an order is the responsibility of the buyer.
SHIPPING - CARRIER
The US postal service is my primary carrier and I primarily use First Class Mail and First Class International Package Mail and you will receive a delivery confirmation number for US orders. You can choose a different method of shipping but you must pay the difference to use a preferred carrier an expedited service. You MUST convo me at the time of your order if you have a preferred shipping method and I will send an adjusted invoice for the remainder due for shipping & handling. Items weighing over 4 pounds will probably ship through UPS. All non-USA destined orders are shipped via the US Postal Service for which there is no delivery confirmation.
SHIPPING - ETA
Purchases for listed items ship within 2 business day upon receipt of your payment provided there are no questions regarding style, color, mailing address, or other delay due to additional communication between seller and buyer. Custom orders ship upon completion. International shipments can take WEEKS to arrive. If you are paying by eCheck, money order or personal check, there is a waiting time of about 5 days before I can ship since those methods of payment must be "cleared".
SHIPPING - COMBINING SHIPPING
Yes, I definitely will combine shipping costs. If you would like a quote on combined shipping, please send me a message. I do realize that sometimes the shipping cost may get skewed when ordering more than one item and am happy to provide you with a shipping quote based on your order. Please don't complete the order rather contact me so I can get the shipping set up for you. After the order has been placed, I will not refund shipping costs.
REFUNDS - GENERAL
Refunds are accepted within 30 days. You MUST contact me prior to returning your order. I will provide you with return instructions at that time. I will refund the purchase price (not the shipping & handling). I'm sorry, but custom items are not refundable unless an error was made on my part. Refunds will not be issued until the original item is returned - no exceptions.
REFUNDS - CUSTOM ORDERS
If I am unable to begin your custom order within your realm of your expectations and have not yet informed you via email that I've began working on your custom order, I will gladly refund any deposit for said order.
Once a custom order is listed, please purchase your order within five (10) days, or the order is subject to cancellation.
REFUNDS - LOST OR STOLEN PACKAGES
I can add shipping insurance if you are worried about your order arriving safely. As of 1,000 shipments, not one has gone missing so I'm pretty confident you'll get it :) However, if you would like insurance or to have your order sent with a "signature confirmation" to protect against loss or theft, I am happy to add it; there is an additional fee of course which you as the purchaser would pay and for which I will send you an invoice for the additional fee. If by some chance your order does go missing, I am a reasonable person and I'm sure we can work something out, so please convo me if you think something is up with your order. I do check the delivery confirmation on the packages myself to insure that they arrive. If I'm unsure, I will contact you.
REFUNDS - SHIPPING COSTS
There is no refund given for shipping costs of returned items. Shipping costs are not refunded for items refused due to Import/custom taxes or duties fees applied by customs officials. Nor are any of these fees mentioned refunded as they are the responsibility of the recipient.
HANDMADE IN DETROIT, MICHIGAN
