Affiliate Disclosure

This policy is valid from 28 February 2018.

This site accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation. This helps keep this site free of charge.

This site abides by word-of-mouth marketing standards. We believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. The compensation received does not influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog.

We never, ever endorse a product or service that we would not purchase ourselves. No exceptions.

This blog uses two types of affiliate program:

1. Amazon Affiliate Links

Knittingauthority.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com, Amazon.de, Amazon.it, Amazon.fr, Amazon.ca, Amazon.co.uk and affiliated sites.

Amazon offers a small commission on products sold through their affiliate links. Prices are exactly the same for you if you purchase through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link.

Any link to amazon.com is through an affiliate link and may give us a commission if you place an order after clicking on the link.

Amazon links are not “pay-per-click.” That means we don’t get anything if you click on the link. However, if you click on the link and then purchase something from Amazon, we may get a commission on that sale.

2. Product Affiliate Links

If we share a product through an affiliate link, it must be a product of the highest quality and value. Recommendations for these products are based on our knowledge of the item, our knowledge of the creator/manufacturer’s expertise and track record, and the value of the item. These affiliate links work just like Amazon links. Prices are no different if you use the affiliate links. You will not pay more by clicking on the link.

The links are not “pay-per-click”, meaning we do not get a commission simply by your clicking on the link. If you click the link and buy the product, we may get a percentage of the sale.


We want to assure you that the views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely our own. We always provide our honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on topics or products.

If we claim or appear to be an expert on a certain topic or product or service area, we will only endorse products or services that we believe, based on our expertise, are worthy of such endorsement. In rare cases, we will mention products that we have not personally reviewed. However, this only occurs when we are familiar with the manufacturer’s previous products and are satisfied that he or she produces only high-quality goods.

Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.

Thank you so much for your continued support! Even if you don’t purchase items through affiliate links, so many of you show support through your comments and emails. Although it doesn’t cover the cost of running this site, it always brightens our day!
