Terms & Conditions

Welcome to our website. If you continue to browse and use this website you are agreeing to comply with and be bound by the following terms and conditions of use, which together with our Privacy Policy, govern Acorn Fabrics (Cumbria) Ltd’s relationship with you with regard to this website.

Sale Contract

Basis of Sale

All orders that you place on the website will be subject to acceptance in accordance with these terms and conditions.

The following is required to create a contract between you and us:

*Please follow the simple onscreen instructions taking you through the process of placing an order on the website. You offer to buy the products at the prices indicated as well as any applicable delivery charges.

*An order acknowledgement email will be sent to you detailing the products you have ordered.

Please note that this email is merely an acknowledgement of your order and not an acceptance or confirmation of your order by Acorn Fabrics (Cumbria) Ltd.

The acceptance of your order and the completion of the contract between you and us will take place on dispatch of the products unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled it. Once we have accepted your order it becomes binding, subject to your rights of cancellation.

Non-acceptance of an order by us will occur if:
* The ordered product is out of stock, or unavailable;
* We identify a pricing or product description error;
* Or we are unable to obtain authorisation for your payment.

No substitute products will be sent.

To purchase products you must register with your real name, telephone number, email address, payment details, delivery address as described below and any other requested information.

Acorn Fabrics (Cumbria) Ltd reserves the right to withdraw any products from this website at any time and/or remove or edit any materials or content on this website. We may refuse to process a transaction for any reason or refuse service to anyone at any time at our sole discretion. We will not be liable to you or any third party by reason of our withdrawing any product from this website whether or not that product has been sold; removing or editing any materials or content on the website; refusing to process a transaction or unwinding or suspending any transaction after processing has begun.

Cancellations, Returns and Refunds

If you are in the European Union and you cancel your order in writing within 14 working days after the day you get your goods, and you cancel the whole order, we will refund the order including any postage and packing costs you might of paid as part of that order.

You will have to pay the costs of sending the order back to us. We will not refund any postage and packing charges if you cancel after the fourteen days allowed under the Distance selling Regulations or if you only cancel part of your order (although you still have 21 days to return your goods and receive a refund for the cost of the goods).


Please contact us on 01282 698662 or sales@acornfabrics.co.uk if you have any complaints.

Product variations and use

Acorn Fabrics (Cumbria) Ltd will make every effort to ensure that the products we supply through our website correspond as closely as possible to those shown on the website but cannot guarantee that they will be exactly the same.

We cannot accept any responsibility for any variations in fabrics or products. Colours may vary from those depicted depending on the settings of your monitor, software or printer. All measurements are approximate. The technical specification of products may change due to availability of raw materials and we reserve the right to make such changes as and when necessary.

Our fabrics are made from natural products and may thus have natural characteristics such as slubs and other irregularities in the yarns which are not weaving faults. All our products are designed for apparel use only.

Our intention is always to prepare your order using fabric in one continuous length without a join or seam. Occasionally, particularly if stock is low, we will have to join two pieces together to fill the order. When this occurs, we pay particular attention to match the colours of the two pieces. If, due to the above, you are unhappy with your purchase when it arrives, please return the fabric to us and we will issue a credit note.

Free Swatches

We recommend that you request a swatch to be sent to you to check the colour, design, scale of pattern and suitability, before ordering your fabric. We are happy to provide a few swatches free but reserve the right to request the customer make a smaller selection should a request be made for a large number of swatches. Alternatively, call us on 01282 698662 and speak to one of our experienced staff who will be happy to help you.

Prices and Charges

All prices are in pounds Sterling and are exclusive of VAT at the current rates but excluding delivery and any other charges where appropriate. Acorn Fabrics (Cumbria) Ltd will use all reasonable care to ensure that all information provided on this website is correct at all times. In the event that the actual price of the product ordered is not stated correctly on the website, Acorn Fabrics (Cumbria) Ltd retains the right to inform you of this error and you may then cancel your order or continue with the order at the correct price. If we are unable to contact you within seven days of your order being placed, we will deem the order as cancelled and will refund your order.

For overseas customers, any customs or import duties levied once the package reaches your destination country will be your responsibility as we have no control over these charges and cannot predict them.


VAT is charged on the fabric and delivery rates for goods delivered within the European Union (EU). Companies outside the UK but still within the EU with VAT numbers (or the equivalent) will be except if they input their VAT number when they register an on-lin account. When you place your order the summary page will display the VAT charged on your order.


In cases of items returned to us due to failed delivery it will be the customer’s responsibility to arrange and pay for re-delivery.

Delivery times are estimated are not guaranteed however we will do our utmost to ensure goods are delivered within the stated time.

We shall not be liable for delays or failures in delivery caused by a failure to gain access to the delivery address on the agreed delivery date or failure to obtain a signature or because of other circumstances beyond our reasonable control. Specific delivery times and days cannot be agreed in the on-line order process. If a particular delivery time is required, orders must be placed with us via email or telephone.
