Delivery and Returns

Delivery

We ship internationally. All fabrics can ship to any destination worldwide.

For a postage quote, please add your desired items to your shopping cart, view your cart and select ‘calculate worldwide shipping’ if you are outside of the UK.

All products

We really want you to receive your fabric when you need it! We’ll always be glad to help if your order needs urgent dispatch, please let us know via email or telephone. We are always here Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm GMT. 

Please make sure to enter your delivery address correctly on our website, otherwise your parcel may be returned to us and we will need to charge for redelivery. If your shipping address is a business/organisation rather than residential, please be sure to check your mail room or goods-in area carefully before reporting non-delivery.

UK:

We aim to dispatch within 4 working days. Our dispatch is usually much more swift! However during the month of August and early September, we have a smaller staff. We’re here to help so please call or email if you need urgent dispatch (except for the out-of-office dates above).  You will receive an automated email notification upon dispatch.

Your parcel will ship First Class Royal Mail unless you select Next Day Delivery (which is Royal Mail’s Special Delivery Guaranteed service). First Class post should arrive 24-48 hours after dispatch. To avoid disappointment, if you need your order for a specific deadline such as a birthday or a sewing class, please select Next Day Delivery to guarantee your delivery day. Our Next Day Delivery service is suspended during early September but please contact us via email or telephone when this option is not available at checkout as we are likely to be able to get this sorted for you. We will be glad to advise you about delivery.

Next Day Delivery (service will resume in the week commencing 18th September):

Your order will be received guaranteed next working day if you place it by 12pm on a working day.

For example, an order placed before 12pm Monday-Thursday will be received the following day.

An order placed between 12pm Thursday and 12pm Friday will be received on the following Monday.

An order placed after 12pm on a Friday will be received on the following Tuesday.

This is Royal Mail’s Special Delivery Guaranteed service and items sent in this way require a signature upon delivery.

If you need guaranteed Saturday Delivery, priced from £13.50, please call or email us to arrange this. We will be glad to help you meet your deadline. 

INTERNATIONAL:

We recommend choosing EU Tracked or International Tracked for your order. If you choose EU Shipping or Worldwide, your parcel will ship with Royal Mail’s (UK postal service) regular airmail, which does not provide a tracking number.

We offer the option to purchase untracked shipping because we want to offer you a choice of prices on postage. 

Please note that we will not be able to supply a tracking number for orders with “EU Shipping”/”Worldwide”. Please also note that we are not able to resolve queries regarding untracked deliveries (to destinations outside the UK) any sooner than six weeks from the date of dispatch. 

We’d like to help with any urgent requirements so please contact us at orders@alicecaroline.co.uk if you would like us to quote for a faster courier service to your destination.

United Arab Emirates: we are glad to ship to your country. We strongly recommend shipping to a PO Box, unless you know that you are able to receive non-couriered delivery from overseas successfully. We also strongly recommend choosing tracked shipping and we may contact you to upgrade your order if you have not chosen this option at checkout.

Any problems/questions we’ll be glad to help, please contact us.
