Traditional Crafts with a Contemporary Twist

Welcome to Shunklies,

Shunklies has grown over the last 16 years from my passion for textile art and mixed media, involving different aspects of fibre manipulation and fabric production (by hand) - Doesn't that sound fancy!.
Fibre preparations, dyeing, spinning, weaving and felting are what I love the most. After those procedures I may go onto sewing my own garments, or offering my hand crafted supplies for sale.

Working with silks, cellulose and synthetic fibres but mostly wool, Britain has the biggest and oldest variety of sheep breeds in the world, with Yorkshire being the heart of the British wool industry. I work 'From fleece to fabric' doing all my own dyeing, carding, handspinning, felting and weaving.
I work with dozens of different breeds in an amazing array of natural colours. Working with natural materials gives a wonderful base palette that is always changing with the seasons.Living in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside just on the edge of the Pennines give me much inspiration.

Shunklies has grown into a full-time business, selling online as well as marketplaces and fairs. People are always fascinated to see the spinning wheels and weaving looms.
I am much more comfortable working at my weaving loom than in the spotlight but I have written articles for various fibre-art magazines and hope to work more on my blog and offer workshops. The studio is open on an appointment basis only at the moment.

I studied business at college and systems modelling at university as a mature student as well as working for world renown goldsmiths and wool works for many years. I have also trained in glass, ceramics and textiles.

Using social media is a brilliant way to connect and I use Instagram daily to connect with my followers and keep up to date with my work and exhibitions, you can find me on Facebook, instagram and Twitter as #shunklies

Shipping Costs

Any shipping overages will be refunded, however they are pretty accurate.

UK - There is a £3.20 charge towards the cost of Postage & Packaging on any size order.

International Orders are charged as close as possible to the actual rate, this is difficult to calculate, however if you do pay too much, you will be refunded.

Please do get in touch prior to purchasing if you have any queries regarding shipping. I am always happy to answer as soon as I can.

I live in a very small Yorkshire village, and support our village post office as much as possible, as most around us have been closed down. I only use Royal Mail services.

Due to the current Covid-19 worldwide shipping may see some delays, I will keep this updated as services change. You can also view Royal Mail's website for latest updates.
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

1. Information I Collect

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewellery, for example), if you contact me directly or add a message to your order.

2. Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

3. Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

4. Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

5.Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

6.Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
