Delivery Information

Dispatch Timescales 

CLOSING DOWN: As of 22nd June 2021 we entered into the process of Closing Down Ab Fab Textiles. We have discounted the majority of the store and therefore have been overwhelmed with orders. This means that dispatch timescales have gone "out of the window"! We would therefore recommend everyone chooses 48hr Tracked or Free Delivery where available for shipping.

Current Dispatch Timescales (08/07/2021): 7-10 working days

Low Cost Item Shipping

These are sent via standard stamped postage to minimise costs and therefore have no tracking options.

UK Bulk Orders

For Bulky orders, eg. >=10m of an individual fabric, then please contact us at for more information and to allow us to quote. Depending on the Shipping Address these may incur delivery charges, as we need to use courier services, but we can often offer discounts on the fabric.

European and Worldwide Shipping

Please be aware that there may be issues within your own country due to the Covid pandemic which may slow the delivery process. This is out of our control.

We are happy to ship our orders worldwide though this is dependent on the total weight of the order. We use Royal Mail (UK based) International Tracked and Signed delivery option which is a fully tracked service. This is to help keep costs down and to allow us to offer affordable postage rates.

All international deliveries will incur a charge dependent on your location and the weight of your order, up to a maximum of 2kg (4.4lb). This will be displayed to the customer prior to payment and you will only be charged for the additional postage required for your specific order. We do not use postage charges to increase profits as we believe in fair charges to all of our customers.

Brexit: Due to the UK leaving the EU on the 31st December 2020 all EU sales will no longer have UK VAT applied to their orders. However, please contact your own authorities to determine whether you will be subject to duties and taxes on goods entering your own country, in most cases this will happen at the moment.

Please Note: Any international orders over 2kg in weight require us to quote for each individual order and we'll quote the full shipping costs as part of the quote.

Please allow 14 days for delivery before contacting us regarding "missing" parcels.
