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 and Kazakhstan postal service, this offer does not extend to customers living in those countries. 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. I do not ship on Saturdays or Sundays.

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.

This is a beautiful yarn with the perfect drape and texture. I used it to knit a cowl and it knit beautifully. I highly recommend buy it from Jannettes Rare Yarns as the price cannot be beat. Thank you so much!

It was so rewarding to receive this publication exactly a week after ordering as opposed to waiting sometimes more than a month after others have received their subscriptions. It's also a lovely edition.

Bright night stars

Lovely soft yarn and exquisite colours. Pattern straight forward and easy to knit. Only reason I've not given it 5 stars is that the yarn is a bit splitty despite trying different types of needles.

Beautiful Yarn

This is a very soft chain style yarn. It was nice to knit with and it was not splitty in any way. The textured stitches show very nicely. I would knit with this yarn anytime. The service was prompt as always!

Fabulous Tape Yarn
Thursday, 2 March 2017  |  Cheryl

Love this yarn. It is very easy to work with. I did size down 1 size on my needles to a #9 USA and not the recommended #10 but that is typical for me as I am a loose knitter.

The best products and service
Monday, 27 February 2017  |  Judy

My beautiful yarn arrived so quickly and I have started knitting already despite the sweltering Sydney summer.
I have bought from Jannettes in the past and I have always been totally impressed by the website, online ordering and shipping. Just the best - support this wonderful business.
