Lovely and quick. Didn’t quite match the ones from an earlier order but were an interesting subtle difference

Traditional Crafts with a Contemporary Twist

I am Joanne Badger, owner of Shunklies Fibre Studio.

My craft involves different aspects of fibre manipulation and fabric production (by hand).

This encompasses fibre preparations, dyeing, spinning, weaving and felting. After those procedures I may go onto sewing my own garments, or offering my hand crafted supplies for other people to enjoy.

I tend to focus on the processes almost as much as the finished item or garment, but it is always rewarding to hear back from my customers and find out what they have been creating.

Questions about your order?
Please if you have any problems with your order.
Many thanks for your order, your custom is appreciated. Being a crafts-person myself and not just some big store, I understand how important your order is to you, it needs to be right.
If you have any issue please get in touch in the first instance and I will work with you to get it right, communication is key to a happy sale.

Under the EU’s distance selling laws, buyers have the right to return certain products for any reason by contacting me within 14 days. This 14-day period will start the moment a customer receives a product, rather than at the time he or she purchases it.

Custom made items cannot be returned, I will work with your request, send photographs of your order before shipping, so you can choose at that point if it is what you want. Once shipped it cannot be returned and no refunds will be given. I think this is fair to both parties. If you do not want your custom order, it will be listed for general sale.
Payment can be made in various ways:

Direct Checkout - Etsys Secure Payment sytem

Cheque - If you are in the UK you can send me a cheque. I will hold your order for you for 7 days, if payment is not recieved I will relist and cancel your order. Items will be shipped when the cheque has cleared.

At no point do I view your card details. Your personal information is not held.
Postage & Packaging

UK - Postage is £3.00, for your entire order. Spend over £40 and shipping in the UK is free.

Outside the UK - Royal Mail Airmail
Shipping is based on weight and Volume

Please feel free to contact me regarding the most amount of fibre I can ship to you for the best cost.

Example -

EUROPE - I can ship 1700g of most fibres to Europe for £17.00 Tracked delivery.

REST OF THE WORLD - I can ship upto 1700g of most fibres for £22.50 Tracked Delivery
Please contact me for a personal quote.

Due to Etsy calculations - If you pay more than the Postage and Packaging actually costs, I will refund you.

You can view Royal Mails Prices on their website. Please factor in Dimensions & packaging weight.

Any Import Taxes or charges are the buyers responsibility in your country.

I always try to get my items out speedily, you will receive a shipping notification when your order has been packed ready to be sent to you. Many of my items are freshly made for you, such as Batts and Rolags. This is so the fibres are lovely and bouncy when they arrive. This can add a day or so to the processing.
Additional policies and FAQs
I do try to keep my prices as low as possible, I want everyone to be able to use the best supplies possible as I have a genuine passion for textile crafts, as well as it being a very competitive market as a seller.
I also only use top quality fibres, which of course means my costs are higher than standard, but I feel it is worth it. People put a lot of time into their craft work and the final outcome relies on quality supplies.

Custom Orders - please get in touch and let me know your requirements.
Hand Dyeing Custom Order - You can choose colours but if you see my work, they all come out differently. I send a photo and if it is to your liking we go ahead, if not you don't have to purchase, as I can just pop them in my shop.
