Drumroll, please! We're thrilled to announce that our new online shop is now open. There's so many new and exciting things to tell you about it that one blog post won't be enough, but here's just a couple of them. When you create an account, you can set up a wishlist for things you really love the look of. This is, of course, awfully useful for making sure you get the perfect present in the future, but it's also good for reminding yourself! We're very happy that we have so many customers who live outside Ireland, and now we've made things a bit easier for them by pricing in three different currencies. At the top of the screen, just to the right of the This Is Knit logo, you can choose whether you want to see prices in euros, sterling or US dollars - just click on the currency you want displayed. If you're shopping from outside the EU, you don't have to pay sales tax (VAT) on purchases here. In the past the VAT could be deducted after an order was placed, but we have now made the process simpler and easier by showing only VAT free prices for customers who register an account with a non-EU shipping address. There's an awful lot more to share with you yet, but right now we're in a mood to celebrate. So if you live in the Republic of Ireland or Northern Ireland and place an order before midnight on March 31st, we'll pay your shipping for you. Simply enter the coupon code "SendMeYarn" to avail of this promotion. So if you fancy an exciting parcel in the post (or want to send a gift to a yarn-loving loved one), come have a look round.
