Upcoming Vacation  - Aug. 14-30/21

It's time for a bit of a break, so we are going on vacation.  During these dates we will not be answering email or the phone or sending out any parcels.  All orders received after Aug. 14 will ship after we return on Aug. 30.  Stay safe and get your vaccine.


New Stock Added - May 23/21

Yes, this happened.  We received 4 shipments of yarn this week.  The website inventory has been updated and Da Crofter's Kep kits are back in stock for both Colourway 1 (Spindrift, blues) and Colourway 2 (Jamieson & Smith, oranges).  The pattern can be obtained from the Shetland Wool Week website.  You can purchase your yarn kit here.

Note that some colours we ordered did not arrive.  Both companies that we deal with in the UK (Jamieson's of Shetland and Jamieson & Smith) are trying hard to produce yarn as quickly as possible while still maintaining pandemic protocol.  Patience my knitterly friends.  One of the colours I am desperate to cast on didn't arrive, so I, too, must practice what I preach.  

Free Local Delivery and Free Shipping Over $125

We can't have people in, so we are offering free local delivery anywhere within a 100km radius of us.  The only conditions are as follows:

- deliveries are as contactless as possible (pay on the website, I’ll deliver your parcel with minimal contact between us)
- someone must be home to receive the parcel or there must be a safe (agreed on) place to leave the parcel so it is not damaged by weather or theft

I appreciate that some customers may prefer to have their parcel delivered by Canada Post so that, if there is no one home, the parcel can be left at a local Post Office for pickup at a later and more convenient time. Pick the shipping option that works best for you.

Note also that we will continue to provide free shipping on any Canadian order (local or not) over $125 (before tax). 

Stay well my knitterly friends.  Make wise choices.  Don't hoard.  Wear a mask.  Wash your hands.
