***UPDATE - This is the second round of production after the huge success of round one and £210 so far raised for Full Fact!***
You are ordering an enamel pin badge with GLITTERY white background and black text that reads "Don't be a dick". The badge measures 30mm across.
Quite frankly, with the state of affairs at the moment, who doesn't need this badge displayed loud and proud? This pin was created to try and raise some money for Full Fact, the UK's independent fact checking charity.
Are you seeing the news everyday and screaming in to your stash in despair? Yeah me too. Ol' BoJo as PM? Brexit? It's enough to make anyone want to eat their lace weight...
So here's where Full Fact come in. Full Fact are the people who fact check everything that comes out of politicians mouths and all the big claims made in the news. They are not affiliated with any political party, they are independent and are here to call out the BS that gets peddled to the British public. They present the evidence that either backs up claims made in the media, online and on social media, or they call it out.
Take a look at the website fullfact.org. Their facebook feed is also a great resource for fact checking posts that do the rounds on people's newsfeeds. You can send things their way too to see if they can look into it.
This is SO important right now. I am truly worried for what the future holds for the UK so this is my small effort to do a little something to try and maintain some...hope? Sanity? We can't control a lot of things right now but we can be properly informed with facts rather than political spin so far twisted you could knit hiking socks with it...
£2 from every sale of these pins will go straight to Full Fact.

Shipping charges are flat rates so there is no extra charge for multiple items.
I do my best to package products to sufficiently protect them in their journey to you.
If packages are delayed in transit I will do my best to liaise with the shipping provider but please keep in mind it is largely out of my control. Keep in mind there may be ongoing shipping delays due to the global pandemic.
Just contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back to me within: 30 days of delivery
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
I am happy to refund or exchange provided the item is returned in a resaleable condition. I cannot accept custom dyed yarn or yarn that has been wound into a ball. I cannot refund postage, nor can I cover the cost of returns postage.
Please note that prices are per single skein.
Wholesale is available on request to retailers.
If you need multiple skeins of yarn for a bigger project, purchase the amount you need in one go. Due to the nature of the dyeing process, it is almost impossible for me to dye skeins and match them to previously purchased skeins; they will almost certainly not be the same and not match. If you need larger quantities of a colourway, please send me a message and I can dye larger batches together for the best possible results. I'm always happy to chat and try to be as helpful as possible so feel free to drop me a line.
Information I Collect
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewellery, for example), if you contact me directly.
Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
- as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
- when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
- if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law;
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.
Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority
How to Contact Me
For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Hannah Mackie, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
