Shop Announcement:

Sale and Clearance updated 5 July 2019 - get it or regret it... Clearance section contains a selection of older stock that is unlikely to be relisted when it expires at the end of its listing cycle. Yarn in this section is at least 40% off original price, and many items at over 50% off!

Packaging may be changing - I don't need to explain why single-use mailing bags are bad, and I have just taken delivery of paper mailing bags (I am aware that paper has a higher carbon footprint in its manufacture, but is more widely accepted for recycling and doesn't sit in landfill for thousands of years). I will need to test these first for durability but if successful, I will roll them out. I also plan to phase out wrapping yarn in tissue paper and including paper receipts in parcels unless customers request them. This was all be a gradual process because I currently hold stocks of plastic mailing bags and tissue paper (and it'll likely take time for me to get out of the habit of automatically printing a receipt). In time I may also switch from satin label ribbons to a suitable alternative such as raffia or jute twine.
