Items are shipped in either a recyclable bubble mailer envelope or small postal box. Each item is housed in a card holder in either a cellophane envelope or a biodegradable glassine envelope. This flat-packing method saves considerable shipping costs.

International Customers Please Note – we are shipping from the UK. Packages to the rest of the world may take up to 2-4 weeks to arrive.

If your package does not turn up within the expected timeframe, please contact us and we will do our best to rectify the situation! However, please be aware that we don’t consider a parcel ‘lost’ in the post until it has been a full 30 days from the date of shipping, and we will not replace an item sooner than this. 

We do not accept responsibility for any customs issues, costs, or refusals. If you are concerned about your country’s customs laws or costs, please investigate before purchase. If a package comes back to us from customs in the original condition, we will of course refund the cost of the item. Shipping costs will not be refunded.

International Delivery


EU Customers - Due to changes in VAT legislation, I am unable to process EU orders via this website. This is because there is no easy mechanism to collect and pay VAT in every EU country without incurring huge costs to Atomic Knitting.

ALL EU orders will now process through ETSY marketplace for EU customers. This means that VAT will be paid by ETSY at the point of sale. There may still be customs and duties charges, but there should not be VAT when you receive your order!

I'm happy to take enquiries for orders via the contact form on Atomic Knitting and create a listing on ETSY for you. Please send details of your order via the contact form.

We use Royal Mail’s International Tracked service for orders. Please note that from 1st Jan 2021, the UK is no longer part of the EU and VAT, customs charges and duties may apply to orders. This is out of our control and is a cost that the customer must pay directly.

Once your order’s been dispatched, we'll send you a confirmation email to let you know your parcel is on it's way. Your parcel will be with you in 5-7 working days (although it can take a little longer at busy times).

Due to shipping delays in all countries, all orders are now sent via a tracked service.
