Looking for Etrto 40-635 Cream tyres - UK

I have 6 classic Gazelle bikes from different eras and they all need 700B (635mm) tyres. Because of Brexit, Dutch cycle shops will not sell to the UK. Many brands like Continental have discontinued their tyres in this size. I am looking for cream tyres. I can get Schwalbe Delta Cruiser in this size but I find it too custard yellow for my liking. Looking for Vredestein, CST, Continental, Deli, Rexway or any other brand. It seems a shame there are so many options for the 622mm circumference, like Little Big Ben, which I like or Continental's Ride, which I don't, it is too plastic, this older size is being left behind. Any suggestions welcome.

They ship to the UK. The website is well known in the Netherlands.
Does this help you?

Thanks but...

Holland Bike shop will ship to Afghanistan but not to the UK. It's a ridiculous Brexit thing, to do with VAT being demanded upfront and paperwork. Nearly all European cycle shops follow suit. There's the rub.
