How do I buy an item?

You can buy an item in one of two ways:

Our very easy to navigate website is designed to give you the best possible shopping experience.

Before you make an order, you will need to browse or search for the item you are looking for. Use our accessible drop down categories and search via yarn, patterns, book, needles, buttons or accessories.

To see a product description, click on the item to view the relevant details. Type in the quantity you would like to buy and click ‘Add to Basket’. If you leave the quantity box blank, it will automatically add one item. Once this button is pressed, it will take you to your shopping basket; you can then either choose to continue shopping which will take you back to your initial page for you to start the process again or you may proceed straight to checkout.

Once at the checkout you have the choice to sign in as a guest or register as a customer. If you are not already a registered customer and would like to be one, click continue and enter your details when prompted. You may also go through checkout as a guest by highlighting the Checkout as a Guest option, in which case none of your details will be saved.

Follow the instructions; you will be able to review your order before your payment goes through and amend or cancel it if necessary.

Alternatively, you can call our Customer Service Team 0845 519 4573 and they can place the order on your behalf or talk you through the process.

What is the cost of delivery?

The cost of delivery is calculated during the checkout process based on the delivery location. For more information please visit our Customer Service page.

How is my parcel being delivered?

The majority of our UK orders are sent out by MyHermes Courier however lighter items such as patterns are sent by Royal Mail. Please note orders containing multiple items from across our warehouse locations may be despatched in separate packages.

Orders outside the UK are sent via Airmail and will be delivered by the usual postal service in the destination country.

When can I expect my delivery?

UK – Customers should expect their orders to be delivered within 1-3 working days (excluding the day of despatch). Orders sent using MyHermes courier should arrive within 2 days and are fully tracked. Many customers report that their orders arrive the next day, but in some cases they may take up to a week.

Please note: Although there is a good chance your order could be delivered the next day, we do not guarantee next day delivery.

Delivery by Hermes - Exceptions –There are a few UK addresses, usually in remote locations, where unfortunately we cannot offer a two day delivery service. If you have bought an item that has been sent using our courier service but live at one of the following postcodes please allow some extra time for delivery - all orders should arrive within 5 days of leaving the warehouse. Postcodes affected: BT, FK20, GY, HS, IM, IV, JE, KA, KW15, KW17, PA, PH20, PH21, PH31, PH32, PH33, PH35, PH41, PH49, PH50, PO30, PO31, PO32, PO33, PO34, PO35, PO36, PO37, PO38, PO39, PO40, PO41, ZE.

Europe – Orders should arrive within 5-7 working days (excluding day of despatch).

Rest of the World – Orders should arrive within 10-14 working days (excluding day of dispatch)

USA and Canada – Orders to the US and Canada vary considerably in delivery time, from a few days to a few weeks. One reason for this is the increased security measures imposed on passenger airlines carrying cargo to the US and Canada.

Where is my order?

Why have I only received part of my order?

We despatch from multiple warehouses so in some instances you will receive your delivery in several shipments. Also for overseas customers, some orders will be too large to fit into one package due to Airmail restrictions. For theses orders please check the address label on your parcel to see if there is a 1 of 2 (1/2), 2 of 2 (2/2) etc. This will determine how many parts have been posted. We cannot guarantee that orders sent out in multiple packages will be delivered at the same time.

When can I expect my refund?

Once your refund has been confirmed, you can expect the payment to be in your account within 2-3 working days.
