Customs and Excise
None of our products are subject to export restrictions or liable for excise tax. In addition to the total price you pay to us, you may also have to pay a local customs duty or import tax. We do not accept liability should local customs authorities confiscate any particular delivery item or charge any import duty. You, the recipient of the order, are responsible for paying any import duty imposed. Royal Mail may charge you for processing your package through customs. These charges are normally collected together with any duty/taxes on delivery but they are not customs duties. If you need to know the exact cost of these extra charges in advance, you should contact Royal Mail and ask what their charges will be.
Ownership of a product or products will only pass to you when we have received full payment of all sums due in respect of the product(s) including delivery charges.
You have the right to cancel your order and to receive a full refund if you notify us within seven working days (starting the day after you receive the goods). This is to allow you time to see the goods at first hand and to decide if you want to keep them. It is not dependant on the goods being defective in any way.
If you decide to cancel your order we will then refund, within 30 days, all money paid by you for the goods. Refunds will be made direct to your credit or debit card account, not in any other way.
It is your responsibility to give notice in writing, by email, fax or letter, of your wish to cancel within this cancellation period. We will provide you with confirmation that we have received your notification of cancellation of your order and we will provide you with a 'Return Number'.
You are under a duty to take reasonable care of the goods for return. You will be liable for the cost of any loss or damage in respect of goods for return.
The goods must be returned in an unused and re-saleable condition, in the case of yarn with unmarked and undamaged labels and free from physical damage or noxious odour.
The cost of returning goods cancelled after despatch will be borne by you, not by us. We cannot accept liability for returned goods lost or damaged in transit so you are advised to package the product carefully to avoid damage and we would recommend for your own protection that you use a recorded delivery or courier service.
You must include your name and address and the 'Return Number' when you return goods to us for any reason.
If you do not dispatch the goods back to us within 7 working days following the day you received them then you should make the goods available for collection by a courier service nominated by us and you will have to reimburse us for the full direct costs we incur in arranging collection by the courier.
