Why should I purchase Route Shipping Insurance? 

Adding Route shipping insurance to your order at checkout means that your order is protected against being lost, damaged, or stolen. In the unfortunate instance that you experience one of these inconveniences, you can report an issue with Route and they will work with you to make sure you get the resolution you prefer. PO.P is not able to replace orders that are lost, stolen, damaged or missing. PO.P is responsible for tendering your order safely and securely to the carrier, in most cased Fedex or USPS. Once your order is in the custody of the courier, PO.P cedes responsibility for your package to the carrier. We strongly encourage you to purchase the ROUTE shipping insurance available as an option at checkout to protect your order while in transit and upon delivery. Please read more about the service offered by ROUTE at this link. The insurance is an optional selection at checkout but highly encouraged, especially at peak shipping times during the year.

How do I enter Thred Up credit, electronic gift certificates, or gift cards for payment? 

If you have PO.P Shopping credit from thredUP, we will be happy to apply that amount to your order after you place it and adjust your balance due accordingly. Just place a note in the comments box at checkout with the value of your thredUP PO.P credit and associated code & we will take care of it from there. You will receive an adjusted order confirmation email once we apply your thredUP PO.P credit. We never actually charge your credit card till the order ships from our warehouse. Until the order ships there is only a pending authorization on the card. If you would like to make a purchase online with a physical gift card, please call Customer Service for assistance at 1-800-POP-KID1, Monday through Friday from 9am – 5pm and Saturdays 9am – 3pm.

The item I want is sold out. How will I know if it is on back order?  

We generally do no reorder items once they sell out except for PO.P Originals. If we do have any backorders coming in for an item, it will be specified in the item description. 

Can I cancel or edit my order once it's been placed? 

We work quickly to ensure you receive your order promptly. Our systems are fully automated, which means that after you place your order it is sent to our warehouse to be packed and shipped.

How can you guarantee that merino wool products are mulesing free? 

Animal welfare is important to Polarn O. Pyret and it does not accept the mistreatment of animals. We distance ourselves from mulesing and only buy from suppliers that guarantee mulesing-free merino wool.

Will my Polarn O. Pyret garment shrink? 

Polarn O. Pyret accept a shrinkage of up to 3% for woven garments and 5% for knits/ jerseys. To avoid shrinkage, consider line drying, and certain items might need ironing after washes, to regain their original shape and fit. If needed, this will always be mentioned on the care label.

Is my outerwear jacket from Polarn O. Pyret waterproof? 

Polarn O. Pyret has three levels of functional garments with water repellent properties. Information will be found on the label and product detail page online. If you need more guidance we are always here to help! We love talking about our outerwear!
Waterproof: The fabric is waterproof (>2000mm H₂O) and has sealed seams. Suitable for heavy rain conditions.

What does USPF 50 for Swimwear mean? 

UPF stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor and is used to communicate the level of protection garments provide. Clothes with UPF 50+ block out 97.5% of UVA and UVB rays. This is approximately 5 times higher protection than that provided by a normal cotton T-shirt. At Polarn O. Pyret we reach the UPF 50 level through fabric without additional chemicals.
