Virtual Yarns: Home of Alice Starmore Yarns And Designs

Our website will be re-opening to UK and Rest of World orders on the 19th of January. On that date all available products will come back in stock and you can order yarns and designs as usual.

 

Ordering from the EU:

The website will be opening to EU customers on the 31st of January. This delay is to allow us to gather practical information for you on package delivery times and customs/handling charges now that we have left the EU. Our yarns are all made in Great Britain, so should not attract tariffs in the EU. VAT will be applied at import by your country, and for packages over the value of £135 there will also be a duty charge applied on import. We have sent some test packages to several EU countries, and once they arrive we will have more accurate delivery information for all customers in that region.

 

If you have a Gift Voucher and want to reserve a particular product for when we re-open, or have a question about an order please get in touch through our Contact Us form.

Every year we have an annual postal holiday over the Christmas and New Year period. The website is closed to orders and will re-open on the 16th of January. We are having a slightly longer holiday this year to take a break after a challenging and busy year. A longer break will also allow us to keep safe and healthy in the workplace after the relaxation of covid restrictions over the Xmas period.

If you have a Gift Voucher and want to reserve a particular product for when we re-open, or have a question about an order please get in touch through our Contact Us form.

You can keep up with our newsletters in our News section for information on our yarns and designs.

Have a safe, healthy and happy New Year!
