I’m ordering something as a gift. Could they still return it?
If you want to gift an Amano piece, please give us a quick call on 01457 761 230, so we can arrange an extended returns policy for you.

My order has arrived but it’s wrong/damaged. How do I return it?
Oh no, we are so sorry about that! Please contact james@foreveramano.com with more information, so we can help resolve the problem ASAP.


How do I place an order with you?
You can buy directly from us via this very website, via our mail order catalogue or by giving us a call on 01457 761 230. You can also send a cheque in the post along with details of your order to Amano, 3rd Floor, Cheetham Mill, Park St. Stalybridge, Cheshire, SK15 2BT. Please also include a contact number so we can reach you to discuss your order, if necessary.

I have a question about an order I have placed. Who can I talk to?

I’ve placed an order but have forgotten my password. What should I do?
Well that was a bit silly, wasn’t it! But don’t worry we’ve all been there. Please click ‘lost password’ on your account login page for more help.

Can I order ‘out of stock’ items?
Why yes, you can. Any of our pieces can be pre-ordered and your card will only be charged upon dispatch.

Do you offer gift wrapping?
We don’t offer this service at the moment sadly, but we believe it’s really what’s inside the parcel that counts! When buying a handknit garment at full price you will receive a cotton amano bag that can be used for your shopping, or keeping your amano safe.

About Us

Where are your knitters based?
Our knitters live way up in the Ecuadorian mountains with our dear friend Miquel and his wife Lucia, in a region called Carchi. We work with around 300 knitters in the area and have done for over 40 years.

Are your knitters paid a fair wage?
Yes, we’ve been giving our knitters a stable and reliable income for nearly half a century. Hand-knitting is perfect for their traditional way of life, as they can fit it in around farming and harvesting their crops.

What kind of wool do you use?
We use the finest sheep and alpaca wool in our designs, both of which are sourced from Peru. We use Peruvian wool as it is extremely high quality, and we are can be sure the animals are well looked after and treated ethically.

How long can I expect my Amano to last?
Amano knitwear is made to last a lifetime and become a future heirloom. Some of our customers are still wearing the same pieces they bought in the early nineties, and you can often find vintage Amano designs on Ebay and Depop that are still in near-perfect condition. So in short, a very long time indeed.
