Welcome to the Noctule UK Mail Order Website

Covid-19 Emergency

Due to the ongoing coronavirus emergency all our our events are cancelled until at least July / August 2020

Our mail order service is still operating but with a much reduced selection as many of our suppliers have also closed or are operating with reduced staff.

Please be patient as we try to fulfill your order in these difficult times.

Terms and Conditions

PLEASE NOTE: we can not accept orders from outside the UK (England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland) unless you contact us prior to placing the order. This is due to the extra postal charges required.


Due to the increasing number of different suppliers we work with we would not be able to provide an all encompassing size guide. We have therefore started to add sample sizes to each item listing. If you are uncertain please contact us before ordering or include a measurement with your order.

Woolen Items

Leonardo Carbone of Germany has changed with material content of it's woolen items. Previously 100% wool, all LC woolen items now contain around 75% wool and 25% other fibres (including cotton and synthetics). The look and feel is very similar and the garments are slightly lighter, so please bear this in mind when ordering.
