Making A Purchase

Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our store, and add any items that you wish to buy into the shopping cart. After you have finished your selection, click on 'Checkout' and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to complete the order.

We accept credit and debit card payment by using the secure Paypal system.

We can supply bank details if you wish to pay by Sterling, just email us your order and we'll send you the relevent details. Your goods will be laid aside for you until your payment arrives.

We do not charge for any item until it is ready to post. Back ordered items are not charged until they are posted.

When confirmation of order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.

Shipping And Handling

Only in-stock items are shown on the website; stock figures may sometimes vary from actual stock held.
We ship your order as soon as your payment has arrived. Orders are dispatched every working day and normally goods are dispatched within 24 hours of your payment arriving.
An email is sent to you CONFIRMING your order and also when the order is DISPATCHED

Delivery Schedule

We normally dispatch your order within 24 hours of receiving your payment. Orders within the UK should arrive within 3-5 working days; to other EU countires 5-7 working days and elsewhere 7-10 working days.
NOTE: For your safety international packages are sometimes checked by Customs and Security Staff on departure from the UK and arrival in your country. This can add a day or so to delivery.

Back Orders

If your item is not in stock, we will back order for you. You will always be emailed with the option to cancel your order if you would rather not wait.

Alba Yarns does not currently add VAT to orders either in the UK or on international orders.
