New Zealand has a free trade agreement with Australia, so parcels being delivered to Australia should not incur any charges. Other countries often do random checks on parcels and if you are unlucky you may need to pay a percentage of the value of your purchase as a tax to your government. Any customs charges or sales taxes upon entry to your country are excluded from our prices. If you are concerned, it may be wise to check your countries policy on imports before ordering.

Q. How do I care for my garment  ?

To keep your garment looking good, they need to be washed at regular intervals. All garments have care labels and should be washed following these care instructions.

All our garments have a high wool content so we recommend using an approved wool detergent and cold water for washing of all our products. Some are specified as handwash only, some of the fabric garments and baby yarns are able to be machine washed on the wool cycle. We strongly advise reading the washing instructions prior to washing.

We do not recommend tumble drying our products.

If you have any additional questions, please contact us, so we can advise you before washing.
