We recommend proof of postage or recorded delivery as we cannot credit any items that we do not receive or which are damaged in the post.

All goods should be suitably packaged to avoid damage, preferably using the packaging in which they were sent to you. Goods must be returned in a resaleable condition.

My order has arrived faulty or damaged

We try our best to ensure items arrive in a good condition. In the rare event of a problem with your delivery, please either do not accept delivery or sign for the item as ''damaged'', or ''unchecked'' if you do not have the opportunity to inspect on delivery. You must inform us by email at info@marrineryarns.com or call 02920 837613 about any such problems within 7 working days. We can then agree the best course of action for you and the particular item.

Please contact us if your return exceeds this amount.

I received an item that I did not order

If we sent you something you had not ordered, you need to notify us within 7 working days by email info@marrineryarns.com or by telephone (02920 837613) to arrange the return.

I want to cancel an order

Cancellations prior to your order being shipped can be accepted by telephone (02920 837613 - Mon-Sat: 9am - 5pm).

If the order has been completed and shipped, please refuse any delivery of cancelled goods. Alternatively, a return will need to be arranged.

You have the right to cancel your order within 14 days without giving any reason.

To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to cancel by a clear statement (e.g. a letter sent by post or e-mail) before the cancellation period has expired.

Effects of Cancellation
If you cancel, we will reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (except for the supplementary costs arising if you chose a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us).

We will make the reimbursement without undue delay, and not later than:
- 14 days after the day we receive back from you any goods supplied, or
- (if earlier) 14 days after the day you provide evidence that you have returned the goods, or
- if there were no goods supplied, within 14 days from the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel.

We will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction. We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest.

You shall send back the goods or hand them over to us at Marriner Yarns, Fountain Lane, Off Cypress Drive, St Mellons, Cardiff CF3 0FB, no later than 14 days from the day of your cancellation.

You will have to bear the direct cost of returning the goods. We suggest that you email your proof of postage to info@shawsdirect.com to speed up your claim.

Alteration of Service or Amendments to the Conditions
We reserve the right to make changes to our website, policies, and these Conditions of Use & Sale at any time.

Promotional Giveaways

Promotions, where a free item is offered, are only valid when the conditions of the promotion are met e.g. a code is entered, or a certain order value is placed. There may be more than one condition.

The free gift can not ordinarily be applied to an order retrospectively outside the timeframe given in for the promotion.

The promotion is only valid when stock still remains of the free gift in question. If stock of the free gift runs out, you will not receive one. In some cases stock may reduce quicker than we anticipated, and the promotion/code may still be active at this stage. Due to the sheer number of orders we receive, we will not be able to notify all customers if this is the case.

By entering any Marriner Yarns’ Competition, entrants agree to be bound by the following general rules.
