Shop Announcement:

OVERSEAS TAXES - EU
As of 1 July, UK regulations on selling to European Union cusotmers changed. VAT must now be charged at point of sale no matter what the cost of the purchase and then paid to the relevant government. The rate of VAT differs from country to country. Thankfully, Folksy will be handling this for UK sellers. This means that if you are in an EU country buying from a UK seller then the tax will be added to your purchase at the checkout. It will be retained by Folksy and sent to your government. The seller will not receive any of this money at any time.

OVERSEAS TAXES - REST OF THE WORLD
Your country may add taxes to imported goods. This will most likely be charged to you at time of delivery. Every country has different rules for the amounts that can be brought in without charges. Please check your local import rules before purchasing if you are concerned about this.

FREE SHIPPING!
I have removed shipping charges from all orders and will use standard UK Royal Mail services. If you want me to use an insured or signed-for postal service then contact me and we can discuss the costs and risks on an individual basis.

About Knot Unknot

Knot Unknot

Wool-tangler extrordinaire - felting, hand and machine knitting & stitching all in the name of art and science!

I have been designing and making jewellery and textiles since 1980 and taking photographs since the 1960s. In all these activities you can see my interests in textures, mathematical processes, scientific illustration and science fiction showing through. I've studied maths, life and earth sciences, feltmaking, textile techniques, botanical photography, science communication, printmaking at a variety of levels and often combine more than one in my art work. I also love collaborating with artist and scientists on bigger projects like those listed below.
