Crochet kit for a cute, fluffy duckling in pure wool yarn.
This little duckling is my most popular crochet pattern, now available in DIY kit form. It makes a perfect Easter gift.
The beautifully-presented kit contains everything you need to make one duckling:
• 20-page pattern, fully-illustrated with colour photos
• 100% merino wool, organically farmed in the Falklands and spun in the British Isles
• bamboo-cotton blend yarn for eyes, beak and feet
• carded sheep's wool (left over from spinning at a local mill) for stuffing
• metal blunt-tipped yarn needle
• gift tag up-cycled from a cereal box
The gorgeous yarn included in the kit is wonderfully soft and a delight to crochet with, resulting in a perfectly fluffy duckling.
The pattern is worked with a 3.5mm (E-4) crochet hook (or the size needed to make a compact crochet fabric with the given yarn). You can choose to include a lovely bamboo crochet hook in the kit if you don't have one or are giving the kit as a gift.
UK and US crochet versions of the pattern are both available. Please indicate which version you would like in the 'Notes to Seller' box at checkout. If you're not sure which to choose, I can help.
The finished duckling is approximately 10cm or 4" long.
Everything is smartly presented in a reusable box, making it a great gift for anyone crafty.
The kit contents and packaging is all as low-impact / sustainable as I can make it.
• printer paper - 100% recycled
• tissue paper - 100% recycled
• labels - 100% recycled
• tape - plastic free, recycle as paper
The stuffing is a natural product and comes in a variety of sheep colours. It is scoured and clean, but may still include the odd bit of straw or leaf.

You can choose to include a lovely bamboo crochet hook in the size required if you don't have one or are giving the kit as a gift.
You can choose to receive the crochet pattern printed on recycled paper and included in the kit, or e-mailed to you as a PDF document for use on your phone, tablet, e-book reader, etc, saving paper, ink and energy in the process!
I can send the kit directly to someone else for you, if you like, just let me know at checkout.

Shipping & policies
DELIVERY - Digital Files +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
There is no shipping or handling fee for digital files, the price on the listing page is all you will pay.
Most of my digital items are available for immediate download from Etsy. In some cases (dictated by the size or number of files) this is not possible, and I will e-mail the file(s) to the e-mail address on your Etsy account (not your PayPal account) as soon as possible. Please allow for time differences when waiting for your files!
DELIVERY - Physical Items +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
I attempt to post ready-to-ship physical items as soon as is humanly possible and always within three working days. Made-to-order items each have the time it will take to make given in the listing. Often it will take less time and I will confirm the estimated dispatch date on an individual basis when you place an order.
I often use recycled paper, envelopes, etc, to post my items. This is not only of benefit to the environment, but it helps me keep my post & packing costs as low as possible for my customers.
I post to the address on your Etsy account (not your PayPal address).
If you're ordering something for a gift and would like it posted to a different address, that's fine too, just let me know!
Items to the UK will be sent by Second Class post, which the Royal Mail aims to deliver in 2-3 working days, but this is not guaranteed. The option to upgrade to a First Class "Signed For" service is offered on some listings, which the Royal Mail aims to deliver the next working day, but this is not guaranteed.
Items to the rest of the world will be sent by International Standard (formerly known as Airmail) for which the Royal Mail quotes a delivery aim of 3 to 7 days after posting, but an item is not considered 'lost' until 25 days after posting to some locations.
Throughout my shop, my postage costs closely follow Royal Mail's charges for the given size and weight of packet - I do not make a profit on post & packing.
If something does not reach you within a reasonable time frame (according to the Post Office's definition for a particular postal service), please do get in touch with me, and we will work out together how best to proceed (replacement, refund, etc). I always obtain a certificate of posting, as if unfortunately something did get lost in the post this would allow me to claim compensation from the Post Office.
In the United Kingdom, the Royal Mail will sometimes leave parcels with your neighbours unless you have specifically opted out of this, or in a safe place that you have agreed with them. Similar arrangements may take place with postal services in countries outside the United Kingdom. This is something you need to arrange with your postal service and is not within my control.
When you buy from me, you are responsible for any customs fees/taxes you are charged, so please be aware of your country’s import regulations. I'm afraid I cannot be held responsible for items damaged by customs officials (although this hasn't happened yet!).
Via PayPal you are able to pay with your credit or debit card.
Please be assured that when you click to add something to your basket, you will always be shown the full cost including postage and packing costs before you commit to buy, and you can always remove it from your basket if you so wish.
CANCELLING YOUR ORDER – Physical Items ++++++++++++++++++++++++++
You have the right to cancel an order at any time from the moment you place the order until 14 days from the day you receive your goods.
This 14 day period is the time you have to decide you wish to cancel and get in touch with me. Once you have got in touch about cancelling an order, you then have a further 14 days in which to return the goods if they have been dispatched.
The Consumer Contracts Regulations does not give you the right to cancel an order for personalized, customized and tailor-made items, but please contact me anyway if you have any issues at all, and we'll work it out together.
CANCELLING YOUR ORDER – Digital Items ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Specific provisions exist in the Consumer Contracts Regulations for digital content.
If you are ordering a digital item, by agreeing to these terms and conditions you are giving your express consent for me to supply you with your digital item within the 14-day cancellation period. (If you did not consent to this, I would have to wait 14 days before providing you with the digital item, to allow you your right to cancel).
You are further acknowledging that once I have e-mailed you a digital item, or you have started to download a file, you loose your right to cancel the order.
If you do not consent to this, please do not place an order.
Returns & exchanges
- Custom or personalized orders
- Perishable products (like food or flowers)
- Digital downloads
- Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
If you wish to return items (this hasn't happened yet!) I'm happy to refund the purchase price plus postage and packing costs, provided the items are returned in perfect (resellable) condition. Here's how it works:
If you wish to return something, you must get in touch with me within 14 days of receiving it. You can do this using the Returns & Refunds Form on my website here: www.littleconkers.co.uk/Little_Conkers/contact-little-conkers or just contact me with the relevant information.
I will process your refund (of the purchase price plus my standard postage and packaging cost) within 14 days of receiving the returned items, provided they are returned in resellable condition.
If you paid for an upgraded delivery service, this will not be refunded in full - I will only refund the amount of my standard postage and packaging service.
A deduction will be made from the refund if the value of the item(s) has been reduced as the result of excessive handling, carelessness or any other reason.
In returning items, you will need to pay for the return postage yourself. I strongly advise that you obtain a certificate of posting (at a minimum) from your Post Office or courier, as if the item is lost in transit you will need to be able to claim for compensation.
If you are returning items to me from outside the United Kingdom, you must mark the package prominently as "Returned Goods". If you don't do this, I will unfortunately have to deduct any customs fees/tax/brokerage charges from the amount I can refund you.
Digital items cannot be returned.
