Do you take commissions?
Of course, I absolutely love making custom knits and I’m open to anything! I always have a wonderful colour selection and over 30 vintage and handmade patterns to choose from!
Drop me an email or a DM and we can chat about ideas and do some designing
Whats the shipping you use?
I ship everything through Royal Mail! For UK orders I use first class which costs £4 and normally takes 1-2 days, and everywhere else uses air mail which costs £9* and takes 5-7 days
Free tracked shipping for all orders over £200, use code 'FREESHIP' to redeem! Also feel free to follow my intsgram where I'll annouce all sales too :-)
(*it seems steep but blame brexit based inflation as everything costs more now)
Do you accept returns?
Due to being an extremely small business I would recommend that if you’re
unsure of anything before purchase please send me a message for extra info/
pictures of the products to help out first. However..
I offer a 7 day cooling off period so if it’s not for you, please contact me
within the time frame to arrange a refund. The item must be unworn and in a
resale-able condition. Please note due to being run completely independently I’m unfortunately
not able to refund the items return postage.
Because to the knits being made to order I don’t usually take returns on custom, however I want you to be thrilled with your funky new knit so if you’re not super happy with it or want a different size just send me a message and we can work something out!
Please note for hygiene reasons I cannot accept pierced jewellery back unless they're faulty.
What’s the lifespan of your garments?
With the correct care and a little love they can live happily for a long time! See the individual listing for the washing info.
However life happens and things do get wear and tear, and I want you to be able to enjoy your knit for a long time! I’m more than happy to do some repairs n refreshing. Drop me a message and we can arrange something!
What does GMMRS stand for and how do you pronounce it?
No cool or interesting story for that one unfortunately, it’s simply my real name with no vowels. It started as a silly screen name for websites that required a login. But when starting my business, a pal pointed out that it’s fairly memorable and it might be worth keeping.... and it’s stayed ever since!
And as for pronunciation, it’s just normally a mash of sounds that come out at once – totally up for interpretation! I love hearing everyone’s versions!
What part is handmade?
Every single part!! Each garment is knitted on my trusty 1980s domestic machine and hand linked/ sewn together to finish off! In fact the only electricity used for the making is a quick steamy press under the iron!
Sustainability within the making is super important to me and my values. In a world full of toxic fast fashion it means the world to me to see wonderful people supporting small business and shopping slow fashion instead.
