We accept returns for exchange or a refund within 14 days of the original purchase date. Please see our Returns & Exchanges page for more details.
Where are your products made?
We proudly make all our products in Great Britain. We have four different locations around the country where our items are made; Lincolnshire, Derbyshire, Manchester and Kent. Fore more details see our Factories & Mills page.
Can I wear your products if I'm allergic to wool?
We use very high quality Merino lambs wool from the first shearing of a lambs soft underbelly. These fibres bend easily, causing minimal or no skin irritation. It is infact, the courseness of (any) textile fibres that cause skin irritation, not wool iteslf. Wool has been officially recognised as a non-allergen. In short, if you feel comfortable in cashmere then you will be comfortable in our goods too!
How quickly will I receive my order?
We take 1-3 days to dispatch your order, then UK deliveries are sent using Royal Mail 1st Class and take 1-2 days. So you can receive your order as quickly as the following day, and up to 5 working days later. If you are in urgent need of your item please contact us as we are always willing to fast track your order for no extra cost. For more details see out Shipping page.
We use the highest quality yarns. Our merino lambswool has been spun in Britain from high grade fleece to give you the softest touch "just like cashmere" - one customer told us.
Our collection has been designed to stand the test if time. When carefully cared for, our knitwear can be passed down through generations to come.
We want you to be happy with your purchase. ROVE has been built on a strong sense of consiousness so if you're not then just let us know and we'll do our best to find a solution!
