International Packages:

We ship all International packages via United States Postal Service FIRST Class Mail, approximately 2-3 business days after the receipt of your order.  The general shipping times for USPS First Class Mail are as follows:

All International first class shipments take approximately 2 – 12 weeks to deliver.

International shipping timetables are an approximation. USPS First Class International does not guarantee the delivery of the package(s) in a certain time frame. Tracking is available only within the United States. Once package leaves the US you will have to contact your national or local mail carrier for tracking. 

International First Class packages cannot be insured or accounted for once they have left our office as USPS does not offer these services on First Class packages. 

All International orders over 4 pounds in weight must be shipped via USPS Priority Mail as First Class mail for this weight class is not available via USPS regulations. Expected delivery date is 6 - 10 days to major markets for USPS Priority Mail International.  If your order is over the 4lb limit we will send a separate invoice for the label cost.

All international customers are responsible for their country’s customs fees and duties. Fees vary from country to country and Swift Yarns is not responsible for these fees.  Customs forms are filled out in accordance with International law to accurately reflect value and contents of the package. Packages cannot be marked as “gifts” as this is illegal.
