Ordering Information


Ordering on our website is easy and intuitive. Sanjo Silk Ltd. accepts payment by either Visa or Mastercard.

Because skeins are wound by hand, amounts can vary slightly. When you order a specific amount (e.g. 50g), it will be +/- 2 grams of that amount.

Cones weights are inexact, although usually 500g, give or take 10g. When you order larger amounts of yarn on cones, please be flexible with the amounts. We will endeavour to supply within 50g. of your requested amount. We will charge for the actual amount we send to you.

Although we do our best to accurately represent each item in the photographs, be aware that colours change on different monitors; colours may not be exactly as indicated on your monitor.

From time to time, prices need to be adjusted. The current price is visible on the website. Invoices will be based on this price.

Currency Options

Use the selector in the top left corner of the site's pages to select either Canadian or US dollar currency for viewing the site. Prices on the site will be shown in your selected currency. Please note that all purchases are processed in Canadian dollars, so the checkout prices may look different from the ones you're viewing while shopping on the site. Please be assured that the exchange rate is up to the minute, calculated by our shopping cart program.

If You Encounter Problems Ordering...

The vast majority of the declined credit card transacions on our website are a result of a problem with the billing address not being the same as the address the credit card company has on file for the cardholder. Please be sure to use the billing address the credit card company has for you to avoid this problem. If you know this isn't the problem, and you're still unable to complete your transaction, please contact us at info(at)sanjosilk(dot)com, or through the form you'll find on our Contact Us page.

Shopping in Person

As yummy as the yarns look on the website, nothing compares to sinking your fingers into the yarns and enjoying their textures, colours and personalities. And we do have unique, limited quantity items in the studio that we can't sell online. So if you're in Vancouver, come and see us at the Silk Weaving Studio on Granville Island. Maps have a difficult time with us because we're not on a road. We're situated in a beautiful waterfront location, on a leafy courtyard, between the Sandbar Restaurant and the Ocean Cement plant. We're worth finding.


We will not sell or distribute your personal information to any other party.
