Orders totalling under $150 are subject to a $5.00 postage charge, and orders over $150 are eligible for free shipping. We recommend using a PO Box or a delivery address that is attended, as lost and stolen parcels are not covered by insurance. You will receive an email notification with a tracking number when your order has been shipped. Once your order is on its way to you, please contact Australia Post directly with any enquiries you may have regarding your delivery. All domestic deliveries can be tracked here, or call Australia Post if you have further questions on 13 76 78. Delivery takes between 1-3 business days to Metropolitan areas, and 5-8 business days to rural areas. *Please allow for extra delivery time in December due to high volumes of deliveries by Australia Post.

Registered Post is $20.00 AUD and is available for all other countries. While this service has no customer tracking, we are able to attain a proof of delivery. This service usually takes 7-14 business days. *Due to local delivery system and extensive customs processes, customers in Russia can expect their parcels to take longer.

International parcels can take between one and four weeks to arrive (country dependent). Please only contact us with delivery queries after four weeks from the dispatch date.
During busy periods on the website, occasionally an item may be sold out at time of purchase. If you purchase an item that is sold out, you will be notified by email as soon as possible and offered a suitable replacement or full refund. Please allow up to three business days for funds to appear in your account if receiving a refund.

Sale items marked down to 70% off or greater are not eligible for return.
Items will only be eligible for an exchange/refund when returned in saleable condition – unworn, unwashed and with all tags attached. We reserve the right to refuse returned items that are not received back in new condition, and these will be sent back to the customer.
In the unlikely event that you receive an item that is faulty or damaged, please contact us within the 10 day period and we will organise to replace or repair the item for you. If a replacement is unavailable, you may choose another suitable item or a store credit.

How to make a return
Please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to notify us of your intention to return and which item/s you will be returning. At this time, please quote your Sales Order number and order date, as well as whether you intend to return or exchange your item/s. You will then be issued with a Returns Authorisation (R.A) number and form by return email and a delivery address for your return. Please do not return an item without contacting us first, as this will lead to delays in processing times.
Please enclose a copy of your return authorisation with the item/s, and return the order to the address provided following initial email contact. We recommend sending your return in an Australia Post parcel with tracking.
Once the items have been received they will undergo a quality review, and we will notify you by email of the result of our assessment. Please allow up to five business days for this process to be completed. You will either receive your new items (for exchanges), a store credit, or a refund of the purchase cost (excluding original shipping cost) direct to the method of purchase.
If you are anticipating a refund direct to your method of purchase, please allow up to three business days from the date of processing for the funds to appear in your account.

Knitwear is delicate by nature – that’s one of the things that makes it beautiful. It also means that extra care needs to be taken when wearing and washing your POL knit.
Before putting it on
We recommend removing jewellery and accessories that may catch and pull the knit before wear.
How to wash
Always refer to the care instructions for the best way to care for any specific piece of knitwear, but here are some additional tips we’ve put together to help you get the best from your knits.
We do not recommend using a woolwash on your knits, which we know seems counter intuitive, but trust us! Woolwashes contain strong chemicals and bleaching agents, causing the dye in your knitwear to run. Opt for a gentle detergent instead.
Always giving your knitwear a hand wash in a gentle detergent will help to retain its colour and softness. Or try washing your knits in a gentle hair conditioner – the natural fibres will soak it up to leave your garment feeling super soft and fabulous.
At POL HQ, we like to gently roll our knits up in a clean towel before drip drying, to draw out any excess moisture. Gently reshape your knit while wet, and always allow your knitwear to drip dry laid flat in shade – on top of a drying rack or washing line is ideal.
Knits should not be hung for long periods of time. We recommend neatly folding your knitwear for storage. All orders from POL online come in a breathable bag, perfect for keeping your knits snag free in your cupboard.
Some information on pilling
Pilling will occur in any knit containing natural fibres – such as cotton, merino wool or mohair. But we promise, it’s not the end of the world (or your knit)!
Pilling occurs when shorter fibres in the knit become separate and ball on the surface of the garment, usually through friction (i.e. you may notice pilling where your handbag strap sits or under the arms). Pilling can also be aggravated when your knit is worn under a jacket with a fleece lining.
So, now we all know the best way to prevent pilling is to sit completely still while wearing your knitwear. But that’s not very fun, is it? Minimise pilling by hand washing your knits, and we recommend using a pilling comb to remove any balling following washing and drying. As mentioned above, try using a gentle hair conditioner when you handwash, or some customers prefer to have their knits dry cleaned and air after each wear to minimise laundering.
Each knit produced by POL is lovingly designed and crafted. Delivering your knit in perfect condition is up to us; what happens after that is up to you. We hope you love your knitwear as much as we do.
