Be Inspired Fibres Be Inspired Fibres



Be Inspired Fibres is primarily a very small bricks and mortar shop dedicated to yarn lovers, fibre artisans, modern crocheters and knitters and managed only by myself.   It aims to provide a wide range of natural, luxury and exotic yarns and fibres curated from around Scotland and the world to satisfy the needs of  adventurous and curious fibre lovers.  I have a lot more brands and yarn ranges available in the shop.  I have an online shop which showcases a selection of the brands and types of yarns, I currently have in stock, however, some items sell out very quickly in the physical shop and may not be updated immediately on the online shop. 

My background:

I first learnt to knit when I was 7 years old and was always either sewing or knitting.  I did stop for a while, but only really picked up the needles again in 2005, after the birth of my second child and when I became a full-time stay-at-home mother.  Knitting has changed so much over the last decade and it is still continuing to evolve, due to the internet and social media.

Inspired by beautiful colours and an amazing range of unusual fibres available today, not only has knitting brought me great fulfillment over the years, but  also  a great number of deep friendships.  In a way, this shop is dedicated to those knitting friends, whom I have knitted with over the years from all over the world.

The shop in Edinburgh will also be hosting a series of classes for beginners and  designer-led workshops.

Important information for buying online

Colours may vary from monitor and I try my best to accurately represent and describe the yarn.    Sometimes the actual availability of stock on the online shop may not be accurate, as it has not been updated manually, but I try to update fast selling items daily.

Online orders will be processed and dispatched within 24hrs during the week, however, if an order is placed on a Friday, your order will be posted out on a Monday morning.  However, if I am on vacation, your order will only be sent out on my return, but you will be notified if this is the case.    If there are any delays and if specific items are not in stock, the customer will be notified immediately, a substitute will be offered or a refund will be given.

I can only accept paypal payment at the moment.

Postage, delivery and returns
Postage is a flat fee. 

If you are not happy with the purchase, please email me immediately and please send it back to me within 10 days in its original condition and packaging for a refund or exchange.  I will confirm the return address by email.

If the returned goods are not in its original or in a re-saleable condition, I can refuse the refund and exchange.  I will only refund the amount paid for goods only, not including postage. 

Please note that you are responsible for paying for the return postage, and don't forget to include your details and ask for a receipt and a proof of posting from your post office (free in the UK) so that, you are insured if the returned parcel gets lost in the post.

Overseas customers
Please email me to check  postage charges and if required insurance coverage, overseas customers are responsible for their local custom duties.  In some countries, where the postal system is not reliable and where there are high incidents of lost parcels, I may suggest using a specialist international courier service, but I will liaise with the customer to check on acceptable costs before confirming and accepting payment.

For oversea returns, please mark it GOODS RETURNED TO THE UK to avoid customs duties.

I hope you like browsing the online shop, and please contact me if you have any questions.  I can be contacted on email:
