We are all experiencing extraordinary times as the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic sweeps accross the globe.
As a small, online retailer we have had to make limited changes to the way we operate due to the outbreak, but please be assured that the safety, health and well being of our customers is always our priority.
Our thoughts are with all our customers around the World, and especially those in areas hardest hit by the virus who have had to make the biggest sacrifice in order to help save the lives of others.
As long as Royal Mail and our other delivery partners continue to handle parcels, our retail business will continue uninterrupted. Most items in our range are currently in stock on the website. Production of new designs for 2020 which launch later in the year was postponed for several weeks although hand-framed garments continued to be made at workers homes. Yarn manufacturing around the UK was also halted meaning that even with production resumed following new government guidelines, items may not run to planned timescales so there continues to be knock-on effects.
We appreciate that when lives are turned upside down due to school closures and changes to working practices and leisure time due to social distancing that internet shopping may not be your priority.
There are many small businesses like ours which are continuing to keep going and help make life as "normal" as possible.
We will be here when you need us!
Best wishes to you, your family and friends
