Our Guarantee

We offer a 100% guarantee. If you are not happy with your product, send it back to us within 30 days of the date of purchase, in the original packaging and we will replace it for you!

We have tried our very best to photograph the products so they give you the truest representation, however due to differences in screen types & settings some subtle differences may occur in the actual product received.

Freight Charges - effective March 2022

Our shipping policy is a flat rate charge regardless of amount spent across all regions of New Zealand.  International shipping is based on weight and will be calculated upon checkout.

Please also note that deliveries to Great Barrier Island and Chatham Islands will incur additional fees due to our contracted courier company not servicing these areas.

International Orders
All international orders are shrink wrapped.  As all international shipping rates are calculated volumetrically (not just based on weight), it means you are paying for us to ship you 'air'.  To combat this we shrink wrap the yarns to reduce the cost (on average by more than 50%).  It can crush the labels a little, but the yarn remains unharmed and literally bounces back after opening. If you do not wish to have your yarns shrink wrapped, please indicate this in the comments and we can calculate a new new shipping rate for you.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: We are now no longer able to deliver to Russia or South Africa. The ongoing issues with the unreliability in delivery has meant that our delivery agent will no longer cover insurance into these countries.  Currently more than 50% of parcels go undelivered and the high cost of freight uninsured has meant it is now no longer viable for Skeinz.
