This is if there is a problem with your order or for the delivery driver to contact you. We do not sell customer details to 3rd parties.
Someone stole my favourite scarf! I bought it two years ago and would like another, do you have one?
Scarf theft does seem to be on the rise! If you would like to replace your favourite scarf but cannot see it on the website, please send us an email with a photograph. We do have a section in our studio with older designs, and we might be able to help you out :o)
What happens to the payment receipt after I place an order?
Once you have ordered and paid via our online scarf store, receipts are automatically emailed. As a high number of items purchased are gifts, we do not include them in in packages.
My order has not arrived, what do I do?
Please use the postal tracking code that was emailed to you when the item was sent. If the code does not work, or you think there is a problem please get in contact with us: Hello@thecuriousyak.com
I bought an item from you at an event and I cannot see it on your website, I would like another:
Lucky you! Sometimes we do take one-off, small runs and sample items to events. It entirely depends on what you purchased as to if the item is still in stock. Please email or call us for assistance.
Do you wholesale?
Yes, if you are interested in stocking our items please get in contact.
I am looking for a rare or hard to find item, can you help?
We work very closely with some incredibly talented artisans. If you are looking for a rare or bespoke item, then please get in contact. Please be aware we are a small team, but we will always try and help.

Help! My favourite cashmere scarf has holes in it? What happened, and what can I do?
Moths… They love to eat precious fabrics and adore the taste of yak wool, cashmere and sheep wool. The best thing to do now is pop the item in a bag and keep in the freezer; This is the only way to kill the larvae. After 3 or 4 days the item can now be washed. Spraying with a moth repellent before storing for the summer will help this in the future.
I need to buy a gift, I know the person likes your items, but I have no idea what to buy, I need help!

Do you use environmentally friendly packaging?
Well, this question is a "tad" embarrassing. Some years ago, we made an error when ordering our packaging. Rather than binning the surplus stock, we are working our way through it, and, once this finished, we have biodegradable packaging designed.

Worldwide. We have international shipments leave our warehouse a few times a week. We provide tracking details and customs forms.
Do you sell customer information?
We do not and have never sold customer information to third parties.This includes email addresses & telephone numbers. They will only ever be used by us to update you on your order, or to conact you if there is a issue regarding your purchase.
