We will always try and send your order as soon as possible, as we know our customers cannot wait to have their Prickly Thistle product!  Currently at the mill we only ship between Monday and Fridays, and each order will be hand picked and wrapped with pride.

We cannot offer free shipping for everything unfortunately, and for lower value orders we hope you understand that we have a little rebel here at the mill who takes the time to pack with care your items and we also work with responsible shipping partners who need paid too.



We would so love to be in your neighbourhood then you could come see us anytime, and until that day comes we can make sure we send your piece of Prickly safely home to you.  Here is the lowdown for each shipping zone;

BASIC SHIPPING (Excludes branded tote bag, hangers and gift wrap)

We have noticed that courier costs have been increasing significantly during 2023, and have therefore introdcued a new basic shipping option for those who would prefer to pay a lower amount and do not mind if it takes a bit longer to get to you.  The basic shipping option excludes our branded tote bag, any hangers and gift wrap.  Therefore making the parcel lighter, and therefore less to send home to you.  The following countries have this option;

Orders Under £275 - Royal Mail £5

Orders under £300 - Royal Mail £15

Orders under £500 - Royal Mail £15

Not available

Orders under £500 - Royal Mail £25

Please note we have opted for fully tracked and signed for services only as we know how precious your order is to you and to us.  It does make it a little more expensive, but you are guaranteed it will never go wandering.
