Delivery & shipping

How it's calculated

Shipping is calculated by weight and destination. The more a parcel weighs, the more it costs to send.  

Yarn orders of $30 or more  ship FREE worldwide but please remember that, if you add books or needles or anything else to the order, you will be charged shipping for these items - it is ONLY yarn that ships free. Unfortunately, due to problems with the Russian postal service, this offer does not extend to customers living in Russia. The free shipping is for standard Royal Mail shipping, if you require tracking there will be a charge

Within the UK

When you view your basket, you will be able to select a shipping method. I ship by Royal Mail. Within the UK you have the option of selecting First Class or Special Delivery.  

Special Delivery guarantees next day delivery and needs a signature.

Outside the UK

Outside the UK I send by Royal Mail Air Mail and you will have the option of selecting regular Air Mail or International Signed For. The latter is trackable on-line and needs a signature. 

Providing your order is received by 3pm UK time, I can ship the same day.
Orders placed after 3pm will ship on the following day. 

Delivery times

  • Delivery times are usually next day within the UK
  • 4 -5 days to Western Europe
  • 6 - 7 days for Eastern Europe
  • 7 - 10 days for the rest of the world.  

There are occasional delays caused by extra security or customs checks but these are few and far between.

Felicitous Find
Monday, 27 June 2016  |  Susan

I was thrilled to find this yarn. as I have the original 2002 pattern book (ten patterns designed by Louisa Harding, no less). The order arrived without a hitch and in record time, which is rare with items posted to my home in Rome, Italy. Many thanks to Jannette for making this yarn available.

Great yarn, great experience

I find this yarn to be quite soft, smooth and shiny. It stands up well to both frogging and wear!

My experience with Jeanette's Rare Yarns was also top-notch - everything arrived as expected and very quickly, too.

Rowan Angora Haze

If you like angora, you'll love this yarn from Rowan. It's just the right mix of angora, nylon, and wool: Nylon for strength, wool for elasticity and loft, and angora for incredible softness and warmth. Good stitch definition for an angora yarn, and a very pretty halo! This yarn is being discontinued unfortunately, so get it while you can!

I was really surprised with the quickly response whenever I had a question and taking care of my order. Even during weekend I asked to change of colours on my order and the response was very kind and promtly. They changed the order and send the yarn I was asking. I appreciated it much. Thank you for that.

Love this yarn and how it fades, and so pleaaed to be able to get black. It washes and wears really well.

Choosing Bliss
Tuesday, 10 May 2016  |  Melanie

The pick-your-own yarn pack of Debbie Bliss Party Angel yarn was not only terrific fun to order, but gratifying to receive. This is gorgeous high quality yarn that can be knitted up using a single lace-weight strand for delicate accessories and shawls, but also using a doubled strand for tops and dresses for little girls and for marvelous evening blouses and shrugs for women. Another choice is to knit with three strand for an aran weight project, such as tops with peplums, or sweaters with cables and textured patterns that can be dressed up or down. I really appreciated the imaginative way that the staff at Janette's Rare Yarns presented this discounted yarn. to their customers. I bought 8 balls of the colour "Pretty in Pink" and can't wait to design a little girl's party dress, probably trimmed with knitted roses or tulips. Thanks so much!
