NEW IN OUR SHOP!

This amazing FELT YARN is made of 100% Spanish merino (non mulesed) wool and comes in an natural, off white color.

It had a treatment that felts it (the treatment is based on water vapor, heat and pressure and it is done by hand!), remaining resistant and hard, but fine and soft to the touch, to make macrame, loom weaving and decoration works such as baskets, rugs, poufs, etc. You can also knit it with your hands. 

It comes from a Spanish cooperative with an animal welfare certificate. Merino quality 100% Spanish entrefina, with wool from merino sheep and entrefines from the Pasture of Ciudad Real and Extremadura, where they are carefully shorn every year in spring so that they can face the long and ancient journey of transhumance through gorges towards the northern areas of Spain, where they will spend the strongest hot months in the summer in a cooler place and richer in natural grasses. After the summer, sheep will make the same trip to their place of origin, where they will spend all winter until the following spring.
The great power of adaptation to weather conditions in these breeds of sheep makes them produce soft, fine and resistant wool to offer a high quality.

DATA

  • MM: 6 mm, 1 ply
  • Meters/grams: 50 meter = 350 gram
    • PLEASE NOTE: in felt yarn, the meters are guaranteed but the weight may slightly vary as it is a material felted by hand and may vary because of the density of the felt
  • Composition: 100% Spanish merino with certificate of origin
  • Format: big ball
  • Color: natural (off white) 
  • Thick needle 20-25 or knit it with your hands
  • Can you wash it? It is a material that can be washed, but we recommend hand washing in cold water and air drying free, so that the inner wool dries completely.

We admit, it is kind of confusing as now we have two Spanish suppliers.
Our Mediterranean Line is also from Spain but as that one is well know as 'the Mediterranean Line', we keep it that way and we hereby introduce to you our other Spanish supplier by the name of 'The Spanish Line.

This company is a family-owned company, working in the wonder world of ropes since the 19th century (the picture below shows the workers in 1920!)

They produce their ropes with versatile and sometimes also very specialized materials, 100% made in Europe.

Their work is produced in three basic foundations: listen to the user, do research and maintain the family tradition of high quality products at a competitive price. While doing so they always take the preservation of our environment for the future generations into account. 

What I feel is really special about this company, is that they really put a lot of effort in producing in such a way that their products are officially certified.

All their products are guaranteed 100% made in Spain and they only use 100% material, made in Europe. They also require their suppliers to have the OEKO-TEX certificate (like they have themselves as well!) to guarantee the control of harmful and toxic substances and make sure the production have an European origin. All their products therefore have the OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certificate.

Besides this, they use as little plastic as possible. The labels are made of recycled paer with FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) and Ecolabel certifications and the packaging and the spools of the cones are made of recycled paperboard wih FSC certification as well..

And last but not least, they comply with the extensive regulations of the Sanitary Registration of the Ministery of Health of the Government of Spain. The products do not contain optical bleach or bisphenol. Their materials pass a very strict health control as the company also has a range of food threads, and that control is also applied to they yarns for the handmade sector. All products are periodically tested in external labatories approved by the European Union.

Besides the above, there are several certifications that are specific to a certain product (these are mentioned within the product description). Such as the 'Detox to Zero - OEKO-TEX'certificate, the GOS Certification and GRS.  

ALL SHIPPING

  • We always aim to ship your package either the same day or the next day.
  • You will receive a message with track & trace code so you know when your package is on the way.
  • We trust you and we trust ourselves but.. .we do not always trust the post ;-) Because we want to make sure, everything you order, arrives with you save and as fast as possible, we ship everything with a track & trace code. This makes it a bit more expensive but gives us both more insurance that your package will arrive.
    • Note: only very small shippings within NL (things that fit in an envelope), we will send without track & trace. Should you request it to be send with track & trace, then please do contact me.

NATIONAL SHIPPING (within NL)

National shipping: track & trace and insurance
All our national shippings are shipped with track & trace. This only means you know where your package is and when to expect it. This is not an insurance in case something happens with your package while on the way. 

As for the insurance of your package; please select accordingly at check out (for only  €0,70 extra your package is ensured for loss, damage etc. on route). We strongly advise you to do so when you spend money (for example over €50,-) as otherwise, when something happens, we cannot be held liable.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

International shipping: track & trace and insurance
All our international shippings (one exception - see below) are send with a track & trace code and they are insured.

  • For shippings within Europe the insurance is up to 500 euro.
  • For shippings outside the EU this is up to 100 euro.

For international, small (less then 350 gram) shippings:
The international rules and regulation changed when shipping to addresses outside of the Netherlands. Unfortunately this means that from 2020 onwards, goods may no longer be franked in the same way as letters. I can frank this type of shipment as a parcel without Track & Trace (being a little cheaper), registered mail or insurance service. Other countries also require that the Dutch post shares information about the content with them digitally in advance.

Long way short: this means shipping small/light items got more expensive :-(
I choose to ONLY send items with track & trace - so as a package. As for those few euros that shipping it without track & trace, it is simply not worth it as packages tend to 'magically disapear' too often in such case. 
So if you want a cute plant animal or just 1 wooden macrame ring, it might be smart to add some to your order in order to make the shipping costs more economical.

Calculated weight: for all foreign shippings:
Our system counts the total weight of your shipping. Most of the time, this should give the right shipping price in the end. But  when you order a lot, we also need bigger boxes - meaning more shipping material. And this has a weight as well. So sometimes, the weight could be a bit more then automatically calculated. In that case, we will send you a message with the extra costs, before shipping your package. When you agree, we will send you an invoice for those extra shipping costs. After receiving your payment, we will ship your package. 
On the other hand: if we calculated you a normal package price for shipping and there is a way of shipping it cheaper, we will do so and refund you the money you were charged too much.
