Delivery and Gift Wrapping


Getting Your Order Out to Post (UK/GB/Worldwide)

Goods in stock will be sent within 1-2-3 days, depending on time of year.  Usually it's same or next day.  Knitwear that has to be ordered in may take up to two weeks.  Bedspreads take up to eight weeks as these are made to order. 

The following information applies to the UK/GB.  We do happily delivery of course to Europe and Worldwide.  Please click here for rates outside the UK/GB. 


UK/GB Delivery

One of the great things about KiwiKate's possum and possum-merino products is that they are all very lightweight, and thus the added post and packing cost is not such a big surprise on top of the cost of the goods. The default delivery method is First Class Recorded as outlined on the table here:

We are now using the wonderful boxes from the Tiny Box Company.  These are very well made.   Smart white tissue, and a variety of ribbons - from Sophie's Ribbons - or the ubiquitous curling ribbon - are also used.  Gift wrapping adds £7.00 to your order - we do like to do this well and it takes considerable time as I am sure you will appreciate.

Standard Packaging

KiwiKate's packaging is simple, minimal and hopefully reusable in the case of the cardboard envelopes and boxes that are used.  All goods are wrapped in tissue, just for protection through the post but one end could be left open if you wish to peak at the goods and then wrap your own paper around them as is!  Please find another use for the cardboard box.  Sorry, not a fan of plastic anything - especially unrecyclable 'bubble' envelopes.  

Signed For (Recorded) or Special Delivery

As a general rule, all deliveries require a signature on receipt.  I cannot bear the thought of things going astray in the post. 

Free Delivery?

Spend £95!  The delivery will require a signature.


Please use the Special Delivery option in the last run up to Christmas - especially if the delivery address is in London.  Less expensive than petrol, parking and stress!


Delivery to the EU and Worldwide

All KiwiKate deliveries require a signature by the recipient.  This protects everyone.

The current rates are based on International Track and Sign which means your order will arrive very quickly, will be tracked and will require a signature.  Your goods should arrive in 2-3 days. 

Where International Track and Sign is not available the goods will be sent International Tracked service.  Your order will take up to 3-5 days to arrive.  If the rates below are found to be excessive once the goods have been sent, we will refund the excess postage.
