At a minimum, we prepare and ship out orders every Monday, Wednesday and Friday; however, in most cases we ship your order out the day it is received, if received by 2p. We enjoy hearing from lots of customers who are pleased to receive their order very quickly.
Shipping paid by The Woolly Thistle is often more than that charged to the customer. Below please find our schedule of shipping charges. These prices reflect a fair distribution of cost depending on where your order is being shipped. We are pleased to offer all US & Canadian* customers free shipping over $120.
*Note restrictions apply to Canadian orders. See below.

A NOTE ABOUT FREE SHIPPING:
Please be aware that we use USPS to mail almost all our packages. From time to time when Free Shipping qualifies and has been selected by the customer, we may elect to send your parcel via UPS Ground. We only do this when you have selected free shipping and when the cost is prohibitive to send via USPS. If you prefer to have your order shipped more quickly via USPS, please select that choice at checkout.
Shipping is calculated at check out and reflects actual cost of shipping the item to your address based on weight and destination. There is a small surcharge added automatically to cover cost of shipping materials and handling. To find out what it will cost to ship your order, please place items in cart and create an order until the shipping info is disclosed. You can then decide to proceed or abandon your cart with no charge to you.
FREE CANADIAN SHIPPING
We are pleased to bring our Canadian Free Shipping threshold in line with our US orders and both now receive Free Shipping on orders of $120 USD and up (however this does not include books & heavier magazines to Canada**). If your order to Canada includes books or heavier magazines we will separate them out and contact you with the shipping price for the books. If your order with or without books reaches $120 USD we will ship the order (minus the books and heavier magazines) free of charge but you will be responsible for the shipping of any books. We apologize for this necessity.
**An example of a heavier magazine would be Laine Magazine.
