Terms and Conditions of Sale

As of June 2014 the Distance Selling Regulations have been replaced by the UK Consumer Contract Regulations. The most important details are as outlined below.



All orders placed through the website now use PayPal service to process your payment. This is completed through the PayPal servers, and as such we are not in direct contact with any of your account information, nor is this stored by us. 

We use a system called Authorize and Capture. When you go through our checkout procedure, PayPal will collect your account details and ensure that the appropriate amount of money exists in your account. This is either your credit/debit card account or PayPal account depending on which you have selected to use. It then places a "hold" on this amount. This means that the money remains in you account. Only when your order is packed and ready to be shipped do we enter the system and collect the payment.

This is called the authorize and capture system.


Incorrect Prices

Occasionally we may get a price wrong online. Wherever possible we will always try and honour the price displayed, however this may not always be possible. If we are not able to honour the displayed price we will always contact you and ask what you would like to do.

Cancelling an order

Your right to cancel starts the moment you place your order and doesn’t end until seven working days from the day after you receive your goods. Goods to be returned must be unopened/unused. The cost of returned unwanted goods must be paid by the customer.

Orders for tailor made items, such as personalised blends, may not be cancelled once the blend has been made. However, we will always check to see if we can resell the blend. If we can we may refund payment.

Return of Faulty or Damaged Goods.

Please contact us as soon as the goods arrive if damaged in transit. If a fault is found on unpacking please report this as soon as possible. We will pay for the cost of return and either give a full refund or replacement.


Return of Unwanted Goods 

iIf you order incorrect products, or change your mind after seeing them, we will refund payment upon their receipt if they are in good condition. 

In this case the customer is liable for the cost of returning the product(s).


Guarantee of Goods

If any item fails to work or appears to not be working or does not meet the description of sale please contact us.  
As the retailer we are responsible for the items we sell and will never pass the reponsibilty for replacement or repair to the customer or manufacturer. For items less than 12 months old it will be normal practice in the event of failure to replace the item or to give a full refund. Over 12 months old we will consider repair or replacement depending on the individual circumstances. In law it is considered that an item has a working life, depending on what it is and how used. For example a spinning wheel would be expected to have a life of several years. If it fails during this period due to faulty manufacture then you have rights in law for refund or replacement. It does not include normal wear  due to normal usage.

Courses Terms and Conditions.

A non returnable deposit of 10% is required at the time of booking. This is detailed on the booking form.  If we are able to fill the cancelled place 50% of the deposit will be returned.
The balance is due on completion of the course.
In the event of cancellation the person booking will be allowed to transfer the deposit to a booking on an alternative future date. The participant booking a course will not be allowed to transfer their booking to another person.

In the event of us not being able to offer the course due to unforseen circumstances a full refund of the deposit will be made. No additional compensation will be made.
