YARN AND PHOTO CLARITY
Due to the wonderful and interesting nature of hand dyed yarns, there is lots of room for variation within each colour way itself and for each base that the colour way is dyed on. Basically, even if it’s the same colour way- each skein is unique! This can be due to the differences in fiber content, plies, and whether the yarn is “super wash” treated.
Our yarn is dyed using acid dyes and should be hand washed/soaked in cold water using a wool wash (i.e. Soak, Eucalan, etc.) and laid flat to dry. Minor color bleeding may happen with some colour ways during their first soak. This is normal and even happens with commercially dyed yarns. If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
TWO + SKEIN PROJECTS
As mentioned above, each skein of hand dyed yarn tends to be a bit different. If you are starting a project that requires more than one skein, in the same colour way, we recommend alternating skeins as you knit or crochet.
