UK Delivery

We use Royal Mail for most of our deliveries.

Our standard service is Royal Mail 24. This is an untracked service.

Where possible we will despatch orders the same day.

Parcels should usually arrive within 1 to 2 days but can take longer.

We normally despatch Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays).

The costs are:

£2.95 for orders up to £25 with free delivery on orders of £25 or over.

We may use a courier for larger deliveries with delivery times similar to first class post.

We now offer Royal Mail Special Delivery next day by 1pm. Delivery is Monday to Friday. Delivery restrictions apply please check with us before ordering. Where possible we will despatch orders the same day. 

 

European Union Delivery 

Orders up to 2Kg

For orders up to 2Kg we offer Royal Mail International Tracked or Royal Mail International Signed depending on which service is available for your country.

Delivery should take place between 5 and 7 working days after we despatch but can take longer. Please note that the 2kg limit applies to the total weight of the order including packaging. The packaging adds about 10% to the weight of the order.

Now that the UK has left the EU we no longer charge VAT on your order. VAT is deducted in the basket before you check out.

Items sent to the EU from England, Scotland and Wales are subject VAT and duties in the EU. The value of goods thresholds are detailed below: 

  • Items valued at under €22 will remain part of the Low Value Consignment Relief (LVCR) Scheme for items sent to the EU and are not subject to VAT or duties until 1 July 2021 (subject to further extension date to be set by the EU).

  • Items sent to the EU over €22 and below €150 may be taxed at the border and may incur a customs clearance/handling fee in the receiving country.

  • Items sent to the EU over €150 may attract VAT, customs duties and a clearance/handling fee

  • The levels and thresholds of charges vary from country to country. We cannot advise on what these may be.  We would recommend that you check with your local postal service before you order from us.

Import Duties and Tax

For all international orders you may also have to pay import duties and taxes. These are your responsibility to pay. We have no control over these charges and since they differ from country to country, we cannot predict what they will be in any individual case. If goods are rejected at customs they are usually returned to us. When goods are returned we can only refund for the value of goods that are returned in resaleable condition. We cannot refund postage costs. Our carriers may also charge us return fees these will be deducted from the refund. 

 

Late and Lost Deliveries

Some of our deliveries arrive later than the times given above. These times are given to us by Royal Mail and the couriers that we currently use (DPD and UKMail) and are out of our control. We cannot be held responsible for any delay caused by Royal Mail or the courier. However, we will do everything we can do to ensure you receive your order .

A very small number of deliveries go missing.

Royal Mail class a parcel as missing only after the following times have elapsed:

10 working days after due date for UK deliveries
​20 working days after due date for European deliveries
25 working days after due date for the rest of the world deliveries

It is only after these times have elapsed that we can issue a refund or resend your yarn.
