We have settled in lovely Edinburgh, arriving just in time for the snow. Perfect knitting weather. Now we are just waiting for the sea freight to arrive with a lovely selection of our most cherished yarns.
Breaking news! The Thread Room is moving to the UK to embark on exciting new art ventures and yarn collaborations. Our last day of online trade will be Monday 3rd December.
Once settled we will re-commence online sales to our European and US markets exclusively. Our move, therefore, marks the end of an era for our Australian, New Zealand and other non-EU/US customers. I would like to thank these customers for supporting both Marta's Yarns and The Thread Room over the many years we have been in business.
We will keep you posted on the move and our re-launch date.
As part of our move we are clearing some yarn. Our 2-week sale starts today and includes 50% off a selection of the Marta's Yarns range, 80% off viscose ribbon (on cones only), discounted 2ply Merino yarns, and much more. See our ON SALE section of the shopping cart.
DISCOUNT POSTAGE. Free shipping for all Australian orders above $75 during our Sale ($8 flat rate if under $75). UK customers who don't need their yarn in a hurry can also choose our special AU$12.50 flat rate sea freight shipping for delivery in mid-February.
Keep checking our sale section over the next 2 weeks as we add more yarns.
