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.

Please note: Royal Mail does not class a UK order as missing until 15 days from the date of despatch. For orders outside of the UK, this period rises to 30 days from the date of despatch.

The long colour changes of this remarkable yarn lend themselves to gorgeous stranded and double-knit patterns. Check out the Stars Flowers and Children blanket, with a lovely quotation from Dante on Ravelry, amongst others. As well, garments knitted with this hard-wearing yarn, if properly cared for, can be used by your great-grandchildren!

I have been in love with this yarn for some time. While it is a little "splitty" to work with, It drapes beautifully and has a lovely sheen. The green is a deep forest colour

Prompt delivery

There is something very satisfying about receiving full packs of yarn. The colour (sage) was even nicer than expected, a softer hue. Fast delivery and just as expected. I have previous experience with the yarn itself - but will be a while before I get to the daunting tasks of making my cardigans with this particular batch. But, happy on all fronts, thanks!
