Postal service and price increase

On 1 January, La Poste, the French postal system increased their prices considerably. Also, for parcels being sent outside France they will no longer accept small packets exceeding 3cm in depth and these must now be sent via their parcel service Collissimo, which is considerably more expensive. I have held and subsidised prices for a number of years, but can no longer continue to do this. So is with regret that I have had to increase postal prices to reflect La Poste's charges. Please accept my sincere apologies but this is a situation outwith my control.

In the case of purchases for patterns and magazines, it may be that the automatic postal charge will be too much, and I will always refund any overcharge.

Just arrived from Debbie Bliss lots of pretty and gentle new shades in Ecobaby, which is so lovely for little arrivals in the wamer months. Plus the lovely Baby Cashmerino 5 book, full of designs you will just love to knit. All the designs can also be made in Ecobaby if you prefer.
So many lovely designs!
