We use UK Royal Mail's Airmail service to ship most parcels. For quicker deliveries, Royal Mail advises the use of their International Tracked & Signed service, see below.

3) Special Deliveries Abroad - Tracked & Urgent deliveries

Airmail is not a confirmed (or monitored) service and may take 2-4 weeks to most destinations in Europe and up to 6 weeks to non-European countries. Countries close to the UK, such as France & the Netherlands are usually quicker but some parcels have taken 5 to 6 weeks to more distant European destinations. The speed of delivery is dependent on European carriers and outside of Royal Mail’s control.

UK Royal Mail can also provide its International Tracked service, as an upgrade to Airmail, and this is more reliable & quicker than Airmail alone. Royal Mail says that its Tracked service receives priority handling in the UK and abroad and is faster than standard Airmail. Their aim is to deliver to Europe within 3-5 working days and the rest of the world within 6-7 working days of posting.

If you require Tracking or a Confirmed and quicker delivery to an address outside the UK, we can send your packet or parcel by Royal Mail’s International Tracked service. This will generally cost £5 more than our standard delivery service for parcels up to 2 kg (e.g. 1.7 kg plus packaging). Add a note to your order or send us an email when you make your order if you require these services.

4) How do I calculate the weights?

The weight must include the weight of packing materials such as padded envelopes, cartons and mailers as well as dyes and mordants etc. For example, an order for 250 grams of alum will need to be sent at the 500 gram weight band. It cannot be sent at the 250 gram band. As a rule of thumb, add 100 grams to the weight for dyes orders of 100 grams or more and 200-250 grams for orders up to 1 kg.

If you are ordering from the USA, Australia or from any country outside UK, you can contact us via the Contact Form or by email to info@wildcolours.co.uk, for an estimate.

5) Small packets up to 150 grams

Small orders for dye plant seeds or for say 100 grams of natural dyes, will usually be covered by the standard delivery charge of £4.95 that is calculated by the shopping cart (for orders under £60). You can order these directly through the shopping cart and we will email you if the weight exceeds Royal Mail charges.

6) What does the Delivery Charge include?

The Delivery Charge is the cost of Royal Mail's Airmail service plus the costs of the external packing materials, such as the mailers and mailing cartons that are used to ship your dyes, and of the Paypal transaction charge.

The Royal Mail charges more for Airmail to Australia and New Zealand but we are currently absorbing the extra costs involved.
