Due to changes in USPS services, our holiday ordering cutoffs are earlier than in years past. Orders must be placed prior following dates to ensure your order arrives by December 25th:

  • Domestic - December 7th EXTENDED to Midnight Pacific Time, December 12th
  • International - November 26th
  • Military (APO/FPO/DPO AE/AA/AP) - November 26th

  • With the unpredictability of winter weather, particularly for our customers located on the East Coast, we strongly recommend ordering early for time-sensitive holiday gifts.

    Don't need your order to arrive for Xmas? Let us take a little more time in making your order and get free worldwide shipping when you use code NOTFORXMAS at checkout! Valid through 12:00 noon Pacific Time, December 8th.


    NOTFORXMAS orders will not arrive for xmas and can not be upgraded or expedited after placement. Orders will be shipped as available via best-priced USPS or UPS ground/first-class/parcel service- Note that these services have a longer transit time (5-7 days domestic, up to 3 weeks for some international locations) and may not match that displayed at checkout.

    We package orders in carrier-provided packaging or plain nondescript parcels. Our return address appears as "TTM/M. Walling". Packaging makes no mention of the nature of the contents except as required by international customs regulations, and in such cases products are marked as merchandise with generic descriptions of "sterilized hemp fiber rope", "books", or "steel ring/hook" as applicable.

    For insurance purposes signature confirmation is required on packages of high value ($200+), or those containing limited-edition ropes, within the USA. Please keep this in mind when providing your shipping address. International customers may be required to retrieve parcels from their local customs offices based on local regulations.

    Hard to believe that it has been 8 years since Tinker and Soldier, our beloved shop cats, first arrived at our door. Skinny, shy and in need of a home, we were told, "remember, these are feral cats, they will never become companion animals".  Of course, if you follow us on social media, they have grown up into the fearsome protectors of our shop, loving companions and part of the fabric that makes working at Twisted Monk so special.
