    Thank you, looks and feels great, haven't spun yet but I'm sure it'll be fun!

    Shunklies are my 'supplier of the year' - not only did I get the roving in time to complete the jumper for Christmas, they also enclosed a wee surprise to keep me spinning. Couldn't ask for more.

    Just perfect - arrived promptly and the roving is beautifully prepared. Needed to complete a project and has slightly less dark brown in the mix (more black) than original (from another supplier I think - too long ago to be sure) but when plied it's barely noticeable. Recommend this supplier

Additional return information
Many thanks for your order, your custom is appreciated. Being a crafts-person myself and not just some big store, I understand how important your order is to you, it needs to be right.
If you have any issue please get in touch in the first instance and I will work with you to get it right, communication is key to a happy sale.

Under the EU’s distance selling laws, buyers have the right to return certain products for any reason by contacting me within 14 days. This 14-day period will start the moment a customer receives a product, rather than at the time he or she purchases it.

Custom made items cannot be returned, I will work with your request, send photographs of your order before shipping, so you can choose at that point if it is what you want. Once shipped it cannot be returned and no refunds will be given. I think this is fair to both parties. If you do not want your custom order, it will be listed for general sale.

Additional policies

I do try to keep my prices as low as possible, I want everyone to be able to use the best supplies possible as I have a genuine passion for textile crafts, as well as it being a very competitive market as a seller.
I also only use top quality fibres, which of course means my costs are higher than standard, but I feel it is worth it. People put a lot of time into their craft work and the final outcome relies on quality supplies.

Custom Orders - please get in touch and let me know your requirements.
Hand Dyeing Custom Order - You can choose colours but if you see my work, they all come out differently. I send a photo and if it is to your liking we go ahead, if not you don't have to purchase, as I can just pop them in my shop.
