The nature of our products is handmade and not mass- produced so delivery times will vary depending on the item chosen. If we have stock we aim to despatch the same day or next day by first class post or courier. If the item is being made to order or stock being replenished we aim to deliver as soon as possible. Please let us know before placing your order if you need items by a certain date and we can advise on delivery times. Many of the items are governed by the laws of nature and cannot be rushed. Sheep to shearing, spinning to yarn, knitting and weaving……
In the event that you place an order and a product is out of stock we will notify you of any delay and agree a dispatch time.
An item being made specifically for you for your order will have its own delivery time and you will be advised of this.
