Privacy and Data Disclaimer 

We do not disclose customer information to third parties other than the transaction handler. Cookies are used on this web site, but are only to keep track of the contents of your shopping cart once you have selected an item.

Delivery and Postage  

Postal Weights Item weights are calculated on the weight of the package. This should not be confused with the weight of the yarns (shown as part of the details for yarn items) as this is based on the minimum weight of the contents excluding any packaging. The total weight of a purchase is shown on the final page of the checkout.

U.K. Charges 

Please note that shipping costs are based on the weight of your order and these are the starting prices for a small parcel up to 250g (or 2 skeins of yarn)

Shipping will be less for items that can be posted as a large letter, i.e. stitch markers or beads.

If your order is over 250g the total shipping charges will be calculated at the checkout.


When an order is placed before 12pm from Monday-Friday, I will endeavor to get this posted out the same day. Weekend orders will be posted out on the Monday.

Standard Postage Charges: 

Royal Mail 1st Class - £2.00 to £4.50 depending on the weight of your package.

Royal Mail 2nd Class - £1.50 to £3.50 depending on the weight of your package.

Royal Mail 24 hour Tracked (next day delivery) - from £6.00

Overseas Charges 

Please note that due to the new EU VAT Shipping Changes, I am currently unable to post any orders to Europe. 

All overseas deliveries will be sent via a Tracked Delivery with Royal Mail International. Costs will be calculated at the checkout based on the size and weight of your parcel.

Delivery Schedule 

If your goods are in stock and your order is placed before 12pm, I will endeavor to post this the same day (although this cannot be guaranteed). For custom dyes or items made to order the delivery time may take 1-2 weeks but you will be informed by email of expected delivery dates.

Pre-posted Order Cancellation

Any orders cancelled may be subjected to a handling charge of up to 10% of the order cost, this is to cover labour and material costs. The sooner an order is cancelled the smaller any possible admin charges will be.
