A standard post and packaging charge of £4.50 is payable on all orders below the value of £30.00 on this website, any orders over this value will be posted free of charge. For next working day delivery we use DPD 24hr service and for smaller items we use Royal Mail. Our postage prices apply only to UK, BFPO and Channel Island addresses. For deliveries to EU countries, please contact our Customer Care team who will be able to advise you, where delivery is possible, about the cost and estimated delivery time. We do not deliver to P.O. boxes. Delivery within mainland UK is normally within 24 hours of receipt of your order, however, please allow five working days before querying a non-delivery. Delivery to Northern Ireland and UK offshore islands may take longer. In the event that an item is temporarily out of stock, we will notify you of the delay and dispatch it as soon as it arrives. Most orders will be delivered by courier between 9 am and 5 pm. If you are unlikely to be in to sign for the parcel, please specify an alternate delivery address where a signature can be made.
When open, the cut out square on the base is marked along all four sides in Imperial or Metric scales. (It is still a surprise, or is it, that we sell ten times as many Imperial models than Metric)! This enables the number of threads and weave to be counted to the inch (or centimetre) and therefore to determine the quality and strength of the material.
