Delivery & Returns

Ordering and Payment 

All orders must be placed through the Atomic Knitting website. Unfortunately we no longer accept payment over the telephone for orders. 

We accept all major credit and debit cards through the payment providers PayPal and Stripe. Payments for Google Pay and Apple Pay are processed through Stripe. You do not need a PayPal account. Simply follow the instructions at checkout.

Orders placed before 2pm usually ship the following day. Please allow 48 hours for orders to dispatch.

Custom Orders

We are happy to accept custom orders, and you can request an order via the contact form. The custom order will be confirmed and a shop listing link sent via email for payment through the website.

Postage & Shipping

All Atomic Knitting products are sent by 1st or 2nd class mail in the UK, usually the next day. Postage is selected and then added to your order at checkout. International orders are also processed in this way. An email confirmation will be sent when your order dispatches. Shipping is based on order value and all of our prices are based on current Royal Mail shipping prices.

Each order is carefully packaged inside a protective recyclable bubble envelope or cardboard postal box and a certificate of posting is obtained for each order.

Europe, US, Canada, Australia and other international customers 

Due to increased handling charges and demand for trackable shipments, we now offer an insured service for all orders that is added automatically during  checkout. Unfortunately we have to pass these costs on to our customers. If you prefer not to have your order tracked and to be sent by Airmail to Europe and North America destinations we will dispatch your order at your own risk, and we cannot be responsible for missing/lost orders unless they are tracked.

We'll let you know the address to send the return to for a prompt refund. Then simply return the item or items to us in their original condition within 14 days of receipt. We will issue a full refund on receipt, or exchange the item for a different size / colour if preferred and if available.  Refunds will be issued in the payment form you chose to pay for the item.

The item must be returned in its original packaging with any enclosed documentation.
