Shop policies

Welcome to Thomas Wood and Wool policies

We specialise in bespoke handcrafted, handspun and hand turned items.

All wood items are provided with a seal of varnish or beeswax finish so will have little problems at customs, but some of the woods used are known to be poisonous when ingested. Please ensure woods such as Yew and Laburnum are kept away from small children, and spalted items will be available in the UK, EU and Non EU countries only.

Hand dyed fibre and items made from this is dyed using acid dyes, and although they have been rinsed thoroughly a slight colour run may occur when washing your spun yarn or item.
As items are 100% pure wool it is recommended they are hand wash only.
