We've made the decision to press pause on any new orders for physical goods. We will continue to sell patterns and gift cards online and appreciate the support of your digital orders!
Existing orders will be shipped while observing all social distancing guidance.
We made this difficult decision so that our team can stay at home and we aren’t straining resources like the postal service, until clearer guidance is issued by the Scottish or UK government. Thank you for understanding.
Our thoughts and best wishes are with our customers and everyone around the world during this difficult time.
We know that many of you are reaching for your knitting to help you cope, and plan to still be here to support and encourage you. If you're looking to buy yarn in the UK there are many small self employed dyers and other yarn businesses who so far have not been offered any additional support from the government and who would very much appreciate your business.
No one in our team will lose their job because of these measures, and their health, safety and livelihood is our biggest priority.
