Holiday last order dates and gift options

I’m not sure how but December seems to take me by surprise every year, this year more than ever as we’ve all had so much else on our minds.

The more organised amongst you will already be thinking about gifts for your loved ones. Because so many people will not be able to see their friends and family in person we’re now offering free giftwrap – just tick the box on the basket page. We’ve also added an option to make it more personal and add a handwritten gift card with your own message.

We do get quite busy this time of year and postal services are also very stretched and often take a little longer, so please order in good time. Our last order dates are below, organised by region (you can also find them in the basket).

During the holiday and new year period we will remain open and shipping daily (except on public holidays) for all your impulse cast-on and yarn emergency needs.

UK

For delivery by 24 December you can order right up until Tuesday 22nd with the Special Delivery shipping option! For our standard shipping (Royal Mail 1st Class*) please order by Friday 18th.
