I am visiting form another country - does anyone speak another language at loop?
Yes! Emma speaks fluent French and German (and works all week) as does Marine who works most days.

The item I want is out of stock...
Will it be in the London shop?
All the stock from the online shop is the same at the London shop so if an item says 'Out Of Stock', we will not have it at loop in London either.

Can I order it?
Feel free to either email us or call the shop (020 7288 1160) to let us know you are waiting for an item to come back into stock. We can give you an estimate of when it should be delivered and take your details so we can give you a call or email you when it is back in stock.

Do you ship to...?
Loop posts parcels all over the world. We send UK parcels by First Class ‘Signed For’ and international deliveries are done by International ‘Signed For’. This is so we can track all parcels leaving the shop. All parcels go by Royal Mail.

How much will postage cost?
Postage fees are based on weight and size of each parcel. When you order from the online shop it takes off VAT, if appropriate, and adds on delivery charges based on where it is going.

You are shown a breakdown of all fees before you click the ‘confirm order’ button.

I need to substitute a yarn...

The best way to find out what other yarns are suitable for a specific pattern is by looking at the gauge on the original pattern and the needle size. You can look for a yarn by weight - 4ply / fingering, Aran / worsted, Chunky / bulky, DK / Double Knit, Lace, Sock or Sportweight - either on our website or through google or Ravelry, to find a comparable yarn thickness that will work with your pattern.
