"Just finished an Aran cardigan for daughter in law which she loves. Service from Marriner was great and yarn 400 GM with wool was nice to work with and very good yardage."

"I don’t want to be completely negative as this was my first/only order so far but it didn’t go well. The price is great but availability of yarn and colours is poor. The quality of yarn is reflected in the price. I placed my order and received a dispatch email same day as per their agreement. However a week later I had no order so had to chase. The order had not actually been dispatched, they had no stock of what I had ordered and offered to send an alternative brand. Lack of communication was the issue here, as I would of preferred to have been contacted and kept updated, rather than having to chase myself for anything to have been done. When they are competing against other companies with very good delivery, they need to improve here."

Hi Samantha,
thank you for your feedback, we are experiencing some stock issues which have affected our dispatch efficiency. We do try to keep our customers updated of any delays, but some slip through and I am really sorry that happened to you, please accept our apologies for the poor communication.
We are proud of the quality of our yarns and you are more than welcome to return it if it fails to meet your expectations in any way. We want our customers to be satisfied with their products from us. Please contact us via email if that is the case. I do hope you will order from us again, and have the good experience we want for our customers.
Kind regards, Caroline - MY

Dear June,
I am very sorry if you did not get a response from us, we usually follow up immediately as we aim to look after our customers as best we can. Emails are not 100% reliable, and I can only assume something went wrong unintentionally - our apologies for this. Should anything like that happen again (I hope it doesn't) then please do give us a call and we will look into things straight away.
Best regards, Leisha - MY

"I was disappointed in the Aran yarn I bought last week. The first cone has had multiple knots and breaks in the yarn. I have continued with my pattern leaving numerous end to sew in. I will therefore use more yarn to complete the garment. Will not be buying this again"

"I’m generally always very happy with the prompt and good service but this time I waited 7 days for it to be delivered even though I had an email telling me it had been dispatched 6 days before. When I called to enquire where my order was I was told there had been a problem and it had only been dispatched the day before. I asked to log a complaint and give feedback about the poor service and why I hadn’t been contacted to update me on the situation. Very poor experience and customer service this time."

"only because the patterns I ordered wouldn't download from your page, I texted and was told what to do which I had already down, I spoke to a lady who tried to help, and said someone would phone back. If its possible for you to print them off and send them to me I shall be very pleased. Thank you"

"Lack of communication when stock not available. Ordered 4 cones of 4ply (2 cones of oatmeal and 2 cones of dusky pink) and because one of the colours was out of stock none of the order was sent. Had an email to say order had been despatched but nearly a week later phoned to inform them that it hadn't arrived to be told it hadn't even been sent because the 2 cones of dusky pink were out of stock. Was very disappointed. Was the first time I'd used Marriner Yarns after recommendation. I could have gone into our local town and bought the wool at the same price and had the garment knitted. The 2 cones of oatmeal has been sent out now following my telephone conversation but still awaiting the dusky pink."

"I was very unhappy with my recent order. The order I put in was for making the Paw Patrol characters for my great niece. I was not happy to find that your web site was less than honest about the actual colours you had in stock. After waiting for a couple of months to order, I received mostly Robin yarn. I must now buy more Robin in order to do this project as I find Marriner and Robin crochet up to different guages and Marriner needs a larger hook. Had I wanted Robin I would not have ordered from Marriner."

"Really disappointed with the quality of the super chunky, once made up it became really fluffy and looked used. All other wool I've had from Marriner has been really good quality."
