About

Colour and fluff

Nunoco started out as a partnership, me (Candy) and Lora my sister-in-law.
Due to Lora moving away to be nearer family, we parted company and so we have now split into two shops.
You'll find Lora's new shop at www.spinjones.etsy.com

Since then, I have enlisted the help of my daughter Beth, who is now learning everything there is to know about the business, and who is proving to be a great asset! Her knowledge of Social media and other general IT things is invaluable!

I have a background in art and look at my surroundings through artistic eyes, seeing colour and pattern everywhere not only in nature but literally everything, from beautiful heathers on the hillside to the cheese in the fridge!
Beth also has a very good sense of colour and so when we create our batts, we use the colours almost like paint, mixing and blending the shades on the carder.

We mostly use commercially dyed South American non mulesed Merino. Because of this, our batts and colourways are repeatable. The noils, firestar and other fibre embellishments we use are all hand dyed.

We don't know everything about sheep or spinning but are constantly learning all the time, through our own experimentation and also from the encouraging feedback and discussions that I have with my customers on Ravelry.

Our studio is situated on the outskirts of the beautiful (and rainy) Snowdonia National Park - a fantastic place for inspiration.

    It takes specialist machinery to produce our blended tops to the quality and standard we require, which we don't have. So we put together the colours and designs here in our studio and then send our 'recipes' to the mill and they make them up for us.

Shop policies

Last updated on June 28, 2017
Hello and thank you for taking the time to have a look around our shop, we really appreciate it.

If you have any questions (in relation to our shop of course) please send us a message and we'll be more than happy to help. Please remember that we might live in a different time zone from you, so you may have to wait a few hours for a reply! But we do try to answer all queries or requests as soon as possible. Our working hours are 10.00 am - 5.00pm on Monday to Friday.


The Merino wool tops we use are commercially dyed, - but we do all the blending on our drum carders. Each batt has been carefully thought out and most are blended three times. Each one takes time.
The blended tops are made elsewhere but to our specific design.
We do hand dyed some of the silks, noils and Firestar that we use.

Payment
You can pay for your order with a credit or debit card through Etsy's 'Direct Checkout'

or with Paypal.



Payments can also be made via Paypal with a debit or credit card ( That's if you don't have a Paypal account but still want to make a payment through them.This is called an e-cheque) but please be aware that it can take up to 7 working days for an e-cheque to clear. Orders will be sent out once payment has cleared.
Shipping
We aim to send out orders within 3 days of cleared payment. If for any reason there is a delay we will let you know.

We are very happy to send to overseas and far far away, however, delays happen. Packages need to travel through customs and this can slow down delivery. If you feel your delivery is taking longer than normal please let us know by sending us a 'convo'. We will ask you to check at your local post office/sorting office first.

We all hate waiting for things to arrive, especially when we have a project that we can't wait to get started with - so we do our best to send your items off to you as soon as possible. However, please be aware that a trip through customs can add a few extra weeks to the delivery time especially during the Christmas rush.

Very occasionally a parcel does go astray so my policy in this situation is that if your parcel hasn't arrived 3 weeks after it should have arrived, we will replace it for you. Although 99% of the time they do turn up eventually!

Please be aware that when having an item shipped into your country, Customs may charge you fees (taxes) before they release your package to you. We do not pay these fees.

We do provide a Tracked shipping service but this costs approximately £5.00 more on top of the ordinary shipping cost, so we don't use it as standard. You will find an option for it as you pay for your item.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please read the listing information and understand that monitors vary etc. we do our very best to give you as much description as possible regarding weight, size, colour etc. If you are unhappy with the quality of your purchase please let us know as soon as possible so that we can make you happy again!
