Do you take commissions?

Yes I do- depending on what you would like to order, the cost will vary.  If for instance you would like an existing design in a colour that I do not have in stock, there may be a surplus charge for the excess of yarn needed to be ordered.  If you would like a different combination colour Joan, in all in stock colours there would be no extra cost.  See below for return policies for bespoke orders.

I am able to source lambswool in over 100 colours, I often blend different colours together to create unique combinations.  Please drop me an email with any questions.

I also take commissions for new designs, I have recently made a women’s jumper based on a customers previous loved one, and men’s jumpers.

What fibres do you work with?

I’m a big advocate for working with natural fibres, so you won’t find polyesters or acrylics here (both of these yarns are essentially plastic).  I mostly work with lambswool, but also love camel hair, cottons, silks & cashmere.   The lambswool I use is merino which is spun & dyed in Yorkshire by a family run business.

Workshop terms and conditions

I reserve the right to cancel any workshop if there are not enough attendees booked on – we will ensure plenty of notice is given if this occurs.

If the attendee is late, the workshop will still finish on time. It is unlikely I will be able to run it over.

Where are the workshops held?

In person workshops are on hold at the moment after our move to Newport and my current maternity leave (May 2024-February 2025). Please sign up to my mailing list for any updates.

Do I need to bring anything with me?

No, all yarns and machines are provided. If having a notebook with you helps by all means bring one along, but written notes will be sent after the workshop. Please bring your own lunch/buy lunch from nearby shops.

9. Shipping customs duties and taxes

​Import duties and taxes are not the responsibility of Amber Hards and are to be paid by the customer if and where applicable.
Since I am a UK-based business, there have been some significant changes for customers buying from and importing to countries in the European Union (as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland).

Post-Brexit changes for European customers (not incl. UK):

For European Union based customers (as well as those in the European single market countries of Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland) please be aware that there has been a significant change to importing from me as a result of Brexit, something .

Value Added Tax (aka VAT, sales tax or GST) and any other import duties will now be the sole responsibility of customers who we ship to in Europe. This is the same as it always has been for my customers based outside Europe. These charges will be collected by the courier before they deliver – they usually send an email with an online bill and payment link.
