Ordering is straightforward using our e-commerce enabled website.

Payment can be made by Credit or Debit Card or with a Paypal Account.

All payments are securely handled by PayPal who use advanced encryption technology and monitor every transaction, 24/7 to prevent against fraud and identity theft.

Please note that you do not need to have a PayPal account, you can simply select Pay with Credit Card at checkout and enter your Credit Card and address details.

For your convenience and security we would recommend creating a PayPal account, it is free and means you do not have to keep entering your address or card information every time you shop with an online retailer.

PayPal do not share your Credit Card details with anyone and they have a Buyer Protection Scheme that covers eligible online purchases when you use PayPal.


We have taken great care with the photography of all of the yarns featured on this website and used industry standard camera calibration software to ensure accurate colours have been captured.

However there may be variations in the actual colours depending upon the device or screen type or the lighting conditions under which it is viewed.

In addition there are sometimes slight variations in the dyeing process and we recommend that where critical colour matching is required it is best to purchase all the Yarn required at the same time, this means that it can be supplied from the same batch or dyelot.


You may occasionally experience a knot in a ball of yarn, this is due to the spinning process where small “weavers knots” are used to produce long runs of yarn before it is wound into balls.

It is impossible to predict if you will have one or more knots in a ball of yarn, the industry guidelines are that it is acceptable to have up to three knots in one ball.

In reality you may have tens or hundreds of balls that have no knots but there is no guarantee.

Some knitters prefer to cut out the original knot and re-tie their own knot, just like joining to a new ball of yarn.



Shipping is restricted to the address registered to the customers credit card or verified PayPal address, unless special alternate arrangements have been agreed beforehand via email.

Poppy's will normally pack and dispatch your order the same or following day depending on the time of your order. On normal working week days, orders processed before 3pm will normally be depatched the same day.

However total delivery time will depend upon the actual delivery service chosen.

Poppy’s use a number of different delivery services including Royal Mail 24 and 48, Parcelforce and DPD depending upon the size and weight of the items ordered.

Typical delivery times for the UK Postal Services are:

Royal Mail 24 / First Class Post - Next Working Day - including Saturdays.
Royal Mail 48 / Second Class Post  - Typically two or three working days - including Saturdays.

Parcelforce - Typically one to two days depending upon service chosen.

Royal Mail 48 is normally used for standard deliveries and these may take 2-3 days to arrive.

DPD is an optional priority service that may be specified for an additional charge.

Please note as a signature is required we cannot ship to PO Boxes, Parcel Locker, Parcel Motels or any other collection service or third party freight forwarding companies.

You may select at checkout from the delivery options available, standard shipping for parcels up to 2kg is by Royal Mail 48 for the UK and Royal Mail International for overseas orders.

Customers may choose to upgrade the shipping type to Priority Shipping at an additional cost.

We may split certain sized deliveries in order to make sure you get your items as quickly as possible or we may need to change the delivery service in certain circumstances, for example when parcels 2kg.

Poppy's reserve the right to change specified delivery options in order to provide expected service levels.

Poppy's cannot guarantee all delivery targets are met once the items have been handed over to third party couriers or postal services, however we carefully monitor providers to ensure a suitable level of service is maintained.


Countries we currently ship to:

Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland. USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

International Orders are sent by the UK Royal Mail International Tracked and Signed service, this utilises the local postal service in the destination country for the final delivery of your parcel.

Please note as a signature is required we cannot ship to PO Boxes, Parcel Locker, Parcel Motels or any other collection service or third party freight forwarding companies.

International Parcels are restricted to a total weight of 2kg each, so larger orders may be split into a number of parcels, each parcel is charged separately, the total delivery charge is calculated at checkout. Occassionally it may be necessary to adjust shipping charges if the packed weight exceeds Post Office guidelines.

As an example packaging adds around 200g therefore the contents would need to be under 1.8kg, this equates to around 16 x 100g balls of yarn, or 32 x 50g balls.

Please note a signature will be required on delivery.

All our International Deliveries are sent in boxes to help protect the contents and ensure all your items arrive in the best possible condition.

The customs paperwork is attached to the parcel in a transparent document wallet, but please note Customs Authorities have the authority to open any packages to confirm the contents and this may affect the packaging of the received parcel.


For Overseas Orders please make sure you select your country using the LOCATION box at Checkout in order to see the correct overseas shipping prices.
(Any orders with incorrect country information will be cancelled and refunded.)

Please check the shipping method is International Tracked & Signed before checking out.

The International Shipping Rate we charge is less than the actual price we pay to Royal Mail for this service, in addition extra paperwork is required for customs clearances in both the UK and destination country.

Please note additional import duties or taxes may be added by some countries and these remain the responsibility of the buyer to pay to the relevant customs authorities.

International delivery times vary by country as they may be delayed in customs on arrival and the final delivery is by the local in-country postal service.

Typically International Post will take 10-15 days for most countries.

In more remote areas of larger countries delivery times may be slightly longer.

Please note we cannot guarantee International Parcel delivery times, customs clearances in certain countries can take significantly more time and while we do use a tracked service a parcel is only considered lost if it is not delivered after 30 days from the date of posting.


Customers have the right to cancel any goods ordered before the items have been dispatched.

In this case a full refund will be made.

Please be aware that goods may actually be dispatched on the same day they are ordered and as a result the cancellation period may be relatively short.

Once the goods have been dispatched you still have the right to cancel your order within fourteen days of receipt and return the items, at your own expense, preferably by a tracked delivery service within 14 days.

Confirmation of your cancellation should be sent by email within 14 days of your order to: [email protected]


Should you experience any problems with any of the received goods please contact us in the first instance via email at: [email protected]

If any of the goods received from Poppys prove to be faulty a refund or replacement will be arranged.

Please contact us for a RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) number prior to returning any goods to ensure return shipping arrangements can be made.

In this case a refund of the value of the order less any enhanced delivery costs, such as next day guaranteed delivery services, will be made once the returned items have been checked.

Certain items, for example Pattern Books and Software discs cannot be returned, if they have been removed from their sealed packaging.
