Care Guide

Hand wash gently in cool water and lay flat to dry.
Due to the nature of the dyeing process, you may experience a small amount of colour bleeding on washing. This can be due to a huge variety of factors, including the hardness of your water, the temperature, and the use of any additions to the wash.
Please get in touch if you need any further advice.

Further Information

Individually hand dyed in the UK using professional acid dyes to produce a unique and beautiful colour.

Whilst we strive for consistency where possible, please order the required number of skeins for your project together to ensure that they are from the same dye lot.
We recommend alternating skeins for larger projects as even within one dye lot no two skeins are identical – this is what is so wonderful about hand dyed yarn!

Please be aware that whilst every effort is taken to provide accurate colour representation in photos, monitors will, and do, vary.
