/ Brexit

Blue Fern Yarns is still running and are all safe in the house-hold.  I always pride myself on my cleanliness when handling yarns. Blue Fern Yarns will continue to send out orders as long as Royal Mail are still operating.

The UK formally left the European Union (EU) on 31 January 2020.

Here is a short summary of the current situation:​

  • During this time the UK will remain aligned to the EU – essentially, nothing will change. 

  • The UK and EU are currently in talks regarding the future trading relationship post-transition. These talks have not gone well, meaning currently I am unable to ship to the EU due to additional taxes and fees which will be required from the customer once the item has reached the EU. 

All further updates will be noted here.

If you would like to return your order for any reason, please let us know within 14 days of receipt of your order. I will accept any items that are still in original condition (i.e. skeins not having been caked or knitted etc.) minus the postage costs. If returned goods are not in a saleable condition, they will not be accepted and will be sent back to you.


Our goal is to ensure complete satisfaction with our products. We take great care in packaging your order for a successful delivery but unfortunately accidents can happen. Should any product arrive damaged or imperfect, please make contact with us by email within 7days of receipt of goods. 
In the unlikely event you do not wish to keep a product after it has arrived, you have 30 days from the delivery date to return the unused product - in some cases, at your own expense unless otherwise agreed - to us in its original condition.  
Upon receipt of the product(s) in the original condition, we will issue a refund within 14 days for the amount charged for the product to your original payment option. 

For your protection, we recommend that when returning products back to us you use a recorded delivery service i.e. a service that provides a tracking. Except in instances where the item delivered was in error or was faulty or damaged, the customer is responsible for the expense of returning the goods to us. THIS DOES NOT AFFECT YOUR STATUTORY RIGHTS. Additionally, we cannot provide credit for packages lost during return shipment if proof of delivery is unavailable.

In accordance with new GDPR regulations which came into effect on 25th May 2018, all personal data that is no longer necessary for Blue Fern Yarns to hold onto (address, telephone number etc.) will be deleted 3 months after your order has been shipped. This means that if you have not signed up as a customer, all of your personal data will be deleted from my records, and the only information that will remain from your order will be that which pertains to my own records - ie; the skeins sold, prices, order numbers and date sold/shipped. If for any reason you need to contact me regarding an order shipped over 3 months ago, please state the order number and date on your invoice. I will still be able to access order details via Paypal, (please see link below for their detailed privacy policy.) but again, this will not be stored by Blue Fern Yarns. You can request via email to see any and all information stored by Blue Fern Yarns at any time, and can also request for it to be deleted at any time.
