What if the piece I want to order is currently out of stock?
If you had your heart set on a piece but it is showing as out of stock on the website, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org where we will do our best to give you an idea of when it is likely to be restocked, and if there is any option for pre-order.
The best way to discover when new pieces are due to drop on the site is to sign up to our newsletters. This is also where you'll hear first about limited edition colours, collections and offers.
Are products available in other thread colours?
Yes! We currently offer 'Tailored Threads' as a custom-made bespoke option. To order a bespoke colour - please email us at email@example.com to discuss options, prices and your requirements.

How should I take care of my Thousand Fibres piece?
All of our pieces are made with the highest quality materials - the recycled 925 sterling silver and thick 3 micron plating of the 18ct gold vermeil have been chosen for their wearability and durability.
As with all precious metals, and to ensure that your pieces are kept in the best condition, we suggest that you wear them with care. This means avoiding any contact with water, fragrance, skincare products and lotions.
Make your jewellery the last thing you put on in the morning and the first thing you remove at night. We also suggest taking off all jewellery when at the gym, beach, pool or in the shower or bath.
When they're not being worn, make sure to store your pieces in their box, away from extreme temperatures and direct sunlight.
In our designs featuring thread, we use natural cotton that has been mercerised. This makes the threads less likely to split or fray and ensures that their colour stays true and lustrous for longer. As with any natural fibres, the cotton will inevitably change in tone and texture with wear.
Whilst the precious metals are made to last, the threads, by their very nature, are more transient. Fallen threads are symbolic - they mark a readiness for change, an emergence of new and necessary beginnings. For threads on which wishes were made, it signifies that the wish is ready to play out. And for those threads that offered protection, support and strength, the shedding shows that a passing of anything that no longer serves you and is now ready to be let go.
If and when your threads eventually fall off, or the time comes for your piece to have new messages, meaning and life breathed into it, let us know and we will happily rethread them for you.
Our hand-tying techniques are such that the threads on your Thousand Fibres pieces should tighten over time. Due to the delicate (and symbolic) nature of the threads however, should your piece require a little TLC we will gladly take care of it for you (within 6 months of purchase). Simply get in touch, and we'll be happy to help you.
If it has been over 6 months we will still gladly rethread your piece, however there will be a nominal additional charge for rethreading. Do get in touch with us via email - we stand by our products and want to ensure you love them.
GIFTINGDo you offer gift-wrapping?
All of our jewellery is wrapped, packed and posted to you in eco-friendly branded Thousand Fibres packaging. Whilst we don't offer additional gift-wrapping services, we will be more than happy to include a personalised, handwritten love note or message. Simply include this in the 'Notes' section at checkout.
Where can I buy a gift voucher?
At the moment, we don't offer physical or digital gift cards - but we are working on it. if you are interested in gifting someone a Thousand Fibres voucher, please do get in touch and we may be able to update you on when you can expect these to be dropping to site.
