Ordering & Delivery
We will always endeavour to dispatch your order as soon as possible after receipt. This often means your parcel will be sent out the same/next working day depending on the time you place your order.
Our web site shows the stock currently available for each product and we only allow you to order more than we currently have where stock is replenished weekly (Knit Pro needles for example) so you will know at the point of ordering if there is likely to be a delay while we wait for a delivery to arrive from a supplier.
Occasionally you may order more than we have available without realising or we may discover a stock error in our system when we pick your order. Sometimes we may not have sufficient yarn from a single dye lot (where applicable) to fulfil your requirement. In these situations, we will contact you by email to advise an estimated delivery date, to advise you that we have made a partial dispatch or to suggest an alternative product.
You can choose your preferred delivery method during the checkout process.

For smaller orders either First or Second class post is available or you can choose Special Delivery which will be delivered the next working day after dispatch. For orders with a retail value of £100.00 or more delivery is - by default - via Royal Mail Special Delivery.
If your order is delivered via Royal Mail Special Delivery you will need to be available to sign for the parcel when it is delivered. If it makes more sense please do give us a work address rather than a home address where there is rarely anyone home!
