As you can see we’re a small company and sometimes we’re not around but please leave us a message or send us an email and we will be in touch as soon as we can.
Placing an order
All prices displayed in sterling. We are not VAT registered.
We take great care in getting the yarn colours as accurate as we can but all computer monitors will display colours differently, therefore, the colours shown are for guidance only. If in any doubt please get in touch before placing your order.
All orders will be supplied from complete dye lots where applicable. If we are unable to supply part of your order due to insufficient stock of a dye lot we will contact you as soon as possible with a new expected delivery date or a full refund.
With hand dyed yarns each skein is individual and there maybe no dye lots. It is recommended that if you are using more than one skein of the same colour that you alternate the skeins in the rows so that any difference in colour is less obvious.
A confirmation of your order will be sent to you by email.
We reserve the right to cancel an order up to the point of delivery.
If you have any queries about your order or our stock please do get in touch.
Paying for your order.
We accept most credit cards on our website.
Payment will only be taken when your order is packed and ready to go so that we know everything is in stock. If there is going to be a delay in dispatching your order we’ll be in touch to let you know.
