Shipping & delivery



Dispatch time

In most cases we dispatch orders the same day or the next working day. Larger parcels are collected 2-3 times a week based on demand.

Yarn Dyeing Kits are packed to order and can take an extra day to prepare.

Custom dyed yarn may take an additional 1-2 weeks but we’ll advise you of the current wait times at the time of ordering.

Shipping services to USA

USA’s departure from the International Postal Union in 2020 unfortunately led to significant increases in the cost of shipping to USA. Additionally, we’ve seen some disruption to services and unexpected delays once parcels enter USA. We now only offer Tracked Express shipping for parcels to USA as we have have found standard airmail too unreliable.
