We only use British wool in our kits and our wool of choice is Appletons. It is British wool spun and dyed and supplied here in the UK. Used by William Morris for his iconic tapestries and by Jacqui for her modern wool supersize stitch technique.
All the wool is ordered by our team in bulk in our favoured colours. We then cut, split and hand twist each hank with our own crafty hands.

Full Hank measures approx 180m (1/2 hank = 90m of yarn cut into 140 cm lengths)
1/2 hank = approx 3000 stitches in our cross stitch method on 10 count

Orders received through the Website for delivery to UK addresses will usually be processed and dispatched within two (2) to ten (10) working days, subject to availability of the Goods. We endeavour to dispatch same day if we can, but this is not guaranteed. At Christmas or other peak times processing may take longer, and we recommend express delivery if you are working toward a specific date. We generally use Royal Mail services for dispatch - and all delivery costs include postage, packaging, and packing administrative charges. First class is generally 1-2 days for delivery after dispatch but they ask to allow for up to 10 working days. Royal Mail does not take instruction on where to leave packages.
Larger orders and most kits are sent via a tracked service as standard and you will receive tracking information at dispatch.
MADE TO ORDER / PERSONALISED / FRAMING
Made to Order, Personalised or Framed items or those products of a bespoke or special order nature are usually delivered within five (5) to thirty (30) days of your order being placed. Personalised is normally five (5) to ten (10) working days and Framing and additional seven (7) to ten (10) working days on top. At peak times these lead times may be extended. All bespoke or personalised kits (unless specified otherwise) are classed as made to order. Other bespoke items may take up to 8-12 weeks e.g: hand stitched cushions and rugs.
We offer an express delivery service for orders for delivery within the mainland UK. Expedited deliveries are RM 24 Tracked which is not guaranteed but generally arrives the next day. We will ship via this method on the same day if your order is available and received before 11am.
This option if available can be selected when you proceed through the checkout stages of the Website. Express Delivery orders will normally be delivered within 24 hours (or 2 business days, which ever is the longer) if your order is placed on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday that is not a public holiday (“a Business Day”), subject to availability of the Goods. Orders not placed on a Business Day will normally be delivered within 24 hours of the next Business Day. This is not applicable to made to order items.
Premium Guaranteed services use a courier or Special Delivery pre - 1pm depending on the package. We do not offer Saturday delivery, unless this is shown. When selected we use Special Delivery or a courier Saturday delivery. On all Express Services - the cut of time for that day is 11am. We cannot offer timed delivery slots. If no one is there to sign for the goods we reserve the right to charge for redelivery. If an express service is selected and we cannot expedite your order, we will let you know and cancel the expedited element of your postage and revert the order to current standard delivery times.
Express is sometimes taken off line at peak times or during holidays as we are only a small team.
We do accept international orders to some destinations and the shipping costs reflect this. For delivery to addresses outside of the mainland UK delivery charges are calculated by territory. We ship via International Air Sure or Signed For or an equivalent service. Their service times vary according to destination but are normally within 14-21 days, but we have known them to be as fast as 2 days, although this is not guaranteed!
