POSSIBLE CANADA POST STRIKE NOTE : As of Monday, July 11, 2016 the news is as follows:
Canada Post has withdrawn its lockout notice that was scheduled to take effect today, Monday, July 11. As a result, Canada Post services will not be interrupted while negotiations continue.

Did you know that wool felt is a completely eco-friendly product? It's a renewable resource (every spring) and this wool felt is manufactured to Oeko-Tek 100 standards which means it is certified free of toxic materials in its making. Here in the studio even the glue used to assemble the tassel tops is certified to be non-toxic and environmentally safe. Sleep well!

About

Building a better tea cosy.

As a tea-drinker I became casually obsessed with building a better tea cosy. One that would keep the pot warm as well as fit my rather spare and (mostly) modern design aesthetic which definitely isn’t all Victorian flowery. Felt is an amazing fabric — it’s been around for millenia and really holds the heat. I made them for my friends. Now I make them for sale — a whole flock of tea cosies.

Every one is hand-made by me in my workshop in Toronto.

Shipping
FLOCK OF TEA COSY: SHIPPING DETAILS

Cosies will be shipped generally within one to two business days of payment depending on size of order.

SHIPPING IS FREE to destinations within Canada. For all other destinations a shipping and packing fee is charged.

SHIPPING SERVICE
All Shipping is done via a Canada Post service and insured through InsurePost. Delivery estimates below are from Canada Post, but your local postal service will affect delivery standards once it reaches your country.

To Canada
Parcel or Expedited depending on destination. Insured by Canada Post; tracking number is included, 1 to 10 business days, depending on destination.

To USA
Small Parcel USA, insured by InsurePost, no tracking number, 5 to 8 business days estimated but has occasionally taken longer. Or, depending on order size, by Tracked Packed USA, tracking number included, 4 to 7 business days.

Elsewhere
Small Parcel International. Insured via InsurePost; no tracking number. Estimated at 6 to 10 business days.

FASTER SHIPPING
Is your order time-sensitive — birthday? anniversary? Christmas? Canada Post XPresspost offers a 2 or 3-day (depending on your time-zone) guaranteed delivery service. The cost is variable and ranges from approximately +$25 to approximately +$75 US (ouch!). Please mention this in the “Order Notes” box at check-out. Payment for these additional charges will be arranged on order confirmation.

PACKING
The cosies are shipped flat in a padded paper envelope with unpacking and cleaning instructions enclosed.

If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please don't hesitate to ask any questions before purchasing so we can ensure you are content and that the cosy will fit your pot.

RETURNS
We can't imagine that you won't like these cosies but if you don't, returns are happily accepted within 30 days of original posting to you. Refunds will be issued (less shipping fees) upon receipt of the returned item as long as the cosy is in its original shape. Return shipping and any broker fees or taxes incurred are at the buyer's expense.

CUSTOM ORDERS NOT RETURNABLE
Please note that Custom Orders are non-returnable and non-refundable once payment is received and order confirmed.

DAMAGES IN SHIPPING
If you receive the package in damaged condition, before opening please take photos of all sides of the package, and, once opened, the cosy itself. FoTC will assist in procurring the insurance coverage, some patience will be required as Canada Post and InsurePost require a certain amount of time to process claims.

Thanks for your understanding of these policies — FoTC is a one-person, artisanal studio and not a giant, multi-national.
Additional policies and FAQs
DUTY & CUSTOMS NOTE
Any duty, taxes or brokerage fees charged by your country's government are the buyer’s responsibility. Apologies, but I have no idea what these charges might be to any given destination. To-date I am aware of only one mailed package held for VAT fees in Italy, and one large(ish) order to the UK held for similar charges by Royal Mail.

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

Will the cosy fit your teapot? Check this link for some measurements:

http://www.flockofteacosy.com/introduction/fittings/

Gift wrapping and packaging

Is it a gift being mailed directly to your giftee? Put a note in the “Order Notes” field and a personal message can be included.

Care instructions

These wool felt cosies hold up wonderfully if treated well. However we all know “stuff happens.” Wool felt is naturally water repellent so quick dabbing of the liquid will take care of most stains. Dry clean only, or spot wash with tepid water and a clean white cloth or paper towel. All cosies are shipped with care information.

Custom and personalized orders

Custom cosies can certainly be made -- convo me with the dimensions of the teapot (or other item) and we'll go from there.
