Postage and Returns

Postage to the UK

We try and get all orders placed via the website sent out within one working day (Tuesday to Friday) of the payment clearing, and wherever possible on the same day. In the event of a delay due to stock issues, we will contact you to explain and give you the opportunity to amend or cancel your order.

Royal Mail 1st or 2nd Class Post:
These are standard Royal Mail services and have an expected delivery time of 1 to 3 days for 1st Class and 3 to 5 days for 2nd Class post.

Royal Mail Guaranteed Next Day
Please place your order as early in the day as possible for this service and no later than 1pm for same-day dispatch. This service is only available for dispatch on Tuesday to Friday.

Collect from the shop: Your order will be packed in a bag for you to collect from the shop. Customers who select this option will be sent an email when their order is ‘complete’ signalling that it is ready for them to collect. You may collect between 12 noon and 6pm Tuesday to Friday.

Postage to the European Union

EU orders are usually sent with Royal Mail’s tracked airmail service.

For orders with a value below 150 Euro, your orders will be subject to your country’s sales tax, which Wild and Woolly will include in your bill at the checkout. Wild and Woolly collects and remits this tax on your behalf so that you will not be charged any additional import tax and will not be subject to additional delays when your order passes through customs borders between the UK and the EU.

If the total value of your order is above 150 Euro, Wild and Woolly will remove any sales tax from your bill and your order will be subject to customs and import charges when it passes through to your local custom’s authority. This means you may be charged VAT or duty before your order is released from customs.

Postage to the rest of the world

International orders are usually sent with Royal Mail’s tracked airmail service.

The prices of the products shown on our website will be adjusted to exclude sales tax (VAT) and you will be given a tax free total to pay at the checkout.

Wild and Woolly places customs labels on all international orders indicating the contents of the order and where each item in the order originates from. On that basis, your customs authority may charge you VAT or duty before releasing your order from customs. These fees are not covered in  the price you pay Wild and Woolly, so you are encouraged to check with your own customs authority to find out what charges if any may be levied for the products they are buying. 

Delivery Delays

In order for us to keep postage and packing charges to customers at a reasonable level, we use Royal Mail’s standard untracked service as the default delivery option for UK orders, and we only charge more for postage if a customer expressly opts for a guaranteed service. This has resulted in the vast majority of orders taking 1 to 5 working days to reach customers. However occasional hold-ups do happen in the Royal Mail pipeline, particularly during busy holiday times, or periods affected by industrial action. Wild and Woolly’s policy is to regard anything up to 21 working days as an unfortunate but realistic wait time for a minority of parcels. For parcels that do not arrive within the 21 working day window, we will always seek further investigation and if necessary arrange a refund or repeat mailout of the order.

Wild and Woolly cannot take responsibility for parcels which are held at delivery depots and go unclaimed by the recipient, or parcels which don’t reach recipients because of customer error in address details.

Exceptionally heavy and bulky items may be sent by a commercial courier service. If you require an express service, please contact for details of additional fees.


We hope you are happy with your purchases from Wild and Woolly, but if for any reason, you decide they are not right for you, please send them back within 30 days of receiving them, un-used and in a resaleable condition, to the shop: 116 Lower Clapton Road, London E5 0QR. Wild and Woolly does not cover the cost of return postage for items sent back to us for refunds or exchange.

Please retain a proof of postage from the Post Office as Wild and Woolly cannot be held responsible for returns which do not reach the shop.

Returned orders from outside of the UK customers should be clearly labelled “Returned Goods” in order to avoid any additional customs fees.

We will refund the full price you paid once we have received the goods and established that they are in a resaleable condition. Alternatively we can exchange them for something else and send that off to you postage free!

If you have any questions or comments regarding returned goods, please email, and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
