Scheepjes Stone Washed XL
Ruth A.Mrs Cook (Harlow, GB)
Very orange

Is feels quite soft, I haven’t used it yet so I don’t know how it knits. I bought it to knit a cat ear hat for a child who has a ginger car and the colour is excellent for that purpose!

Great product and service

Arrived next day, exact match for existing .

Amazing yarn - perfect!

Wow! I rarely write reviews, but then again, how often do you come across a yarn like this! Its colour, semi-sheen, strength, stitch definition, texture - all seem perfect. I haven't yet washed or worn - or, indeed, finished - the jumper I'm knitting with it, but I'm confident that it will be comfortable, practical and beautiful in use. Thank you!

late package dispatch

When you order the products, you can choose 2 delivery options. 24h shipping or 48h shipping. I chose the 24h, and I ordered on Monday evening, and a package arrived on Thursday afternoon. It should have arrived on Wednesday! The delay was entirely the fault of the store. They didn’t dispatch the package in time, and then when I complained in email, they referred to the service not working well, and the 24h shipping is 1 or 2 days, and not guaranteed the 24h delivery! Bullshit!!

Hi Viktoria,

Thanks for your review, but unfortunately it is entirely inaccurate.

You ordered Monday evening and we sent you a despatch email at 3:39pm on the Tuesday. You were then sent an email at 5:16pm from Royal Mail when they scanned your parcel in (so at this point we have sent the parcel to you within the time frame given as you ordered well after the 3pm cut off, so your order was despatched the following day). Our post collection is late afternoon, so again, within the timeframe.

Your parcel then did indeed arrive on Thursday, again, within the time frame stated (all listed here in our delivery information! https://www.sconch.com/policies/shipping-policy). Tracked 24 is not a guaranteed 24 hour service, but is what Royal Mail call their tracked version of 1st class, so expected delivery is 1-2 days, but can sometimes take longer. They did however deliver within 2 days

All this was explained to you in the email I replied with when you emailed on Wednesday demanding a refund.

I'm sorry you didn't read our delivery information before ordering and that you feel me explaining what Royal Mail's delivery times are constitute blaming the service, and I'm sorry you feel the need to be so abusive.

Thanks,

Sam.

West Yorkshire Spinners Bo Peep Pure DK
Ruth A.Mrs Cook (Harlow, GB)
Bo Peep Pure DK

Purchased for a Christmas stocking. Colours on screen very accurate, good price, very quick service. First online purchase from Sconch, usually shop in person, but I needed the wool sooner than I could get there. Used to buy online from one of the major online craft suppliers who charge the same postage and take twice as long to deliver, I thought a local yarn store would also be more expensive per ball, but they are not. Overall very satisfactory purchase. thank you.

Rowan Alpaca Soft DK
Georgia (Birmingham, GB)
Great Wool Great Service

I have to say, the way Sconch package the Rowan Alpaca soft is the best I've seen. Normally when it arrives, it's been beaten up a bit in transit and is coming out of the ball. When it's sent by Sconch, the wool is squished into a small package, which keeps it secure and prevents it being bashed about in the post - keeping the ball intact. As always Rowan wool is just as nice as you would expect given the price. The Alpaca Soft in particular is wonderfully soft and bouncy. Sconch delivered really swiftly - which is great as I'm always running out of wool mid project and need more ASAP! Overall 10/10 wool and service, would order again.
