"I love Marriner Yarns! Sensible prices over a wide range of yarns! Some lovely buttons and great patterns. Of course they always have all the necessities for yarn-craft and their service is always exemplary. What's not to love?! The photo is of the king size blanket I made my daughter for Christmas, using Marriner yarns of course!"

"I only buy my yarns from Marriner now, as I love the variety of colours, different weights all at an affordable price, delivery is very prompt reliable. I would and do recommend Marriner yarns to my friends and anybody who loves knitting and crocheting."

"The quality of the wool supplied was very poor. My wife knits hats for premature babies at our local hospital and this wool is totally unsuitable for this. It varies in thickness and when knitted up there appears very uneven in the finished item. I will not be placing any further orders with Marriner Yarns"

Dear Mr Hambleton,
I am sorry to see that your wife is unhappy with the 4Ply cones for knitting premature baby garments. I can understand that it is important to have the best quality yarn to do this and we would not have recommended its use for this purpose. We have a huge number of customers who knit for charity, and most use our SuperSoft Baby yarn or standard DK depending on the projects.
I will send you a ball of our Supersoft for your wife to compare, and to make up for her disappointment with the suitability of the 4Ply.
Kind regards, Caroline - MY

"The company said they were sorry I didn't like the colours - no admission that they are not the colours the Irish rugby team play in!!!! Extremely poor customer service with the added insult to injury of suggesting I just don't use one of the colours they sent - terrible service!!!!"

"I sent for the Irish team colours for rugby. What I got was wool for a green, white and black stripey hat and scarf. I phoned and was told I saw what I was ordering on the website but I could return the wool at my own cost! DO NOT BUY IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR GENUINE IRISH RUGBY COLOURS!!!!"

Dear Sylvia,
I'm sorry you don't like the colours, however they are clearly shown on the product page photograph and again in the basket before an order is placed. A simple solution could be to leave out the black and replace with white, if you don't want to return the order for a refund.
Kind regards, Caroline - MY

"I am vert dissatisfied and let down.I ordered 26 ball of wool and the very first ball I used was full of knots ad if someone startef to knit ans rolled the wool around, three of the same colour feel extremely lumpy and I feel this is totally unacceptable. This was my first time using marriners as it was recommended by a good friend. I can provide photos."

Dear Mrs Wright,
we're sorry that you are unhappy with one of the Super Chunky balls. From the picture provided we cannot see any knots and the yarn looks nothing like how we send it out.
Perhaps you could forward clearer pictures to our Customer Service ( and we are more than happy to sort this out with you. As you can see from our feedback we pride ourselves in selling a good product to our many customers.
Kind regards,
Caroline - MY

"I wasn't happy about downloading partens because I can't always open downloads when I want to knit it sucks I won't buy anything from you again"

Dear Ms Simbi,
I'm sorry that you are unhappy, it is clearly stated at the top of every pattern page and in checkout that our patterns are downloads, which makes them immediately available to print. Many of our customers like the speed with which they have access to the pattern to start knitting or crochet.
Kind regards, Marriner Yarns

"This happened some years ago. I bought some acrylic/wool yarn from Marriner. The quality was extremely poor. When I complained, I was told that it was a a manufacturing problem. The reply was rather curt. No offer of a refund was made. No solution was offered. I have not ordered anything since this happened. Plenty of other yarn stores online. I have found that all have better customer service than Marriner."

"The yarn I received was not the colour as described on your website. I have emailed you regarding this and have received an apology by return to say that you will be hopefully sending the correct colour I ordered. I am now awaiting this yarn"
Posted 1 year ago
"The item was marked as dispatched on the Monday after the order. When it had not arrived by Thursday I sent an email to ask where it was. This was not answered and I had to send another email before I was told it wasn't actually dispatched until the Thursday. I arrived on the Saturday a week after I had ordered. The quality of the yarn is not good. I am doing a blanket with the Midget wool and the quality is terrible. The light blue wool has black fluff on it making it look dirty and the wool has knots in it."
