General Yarn Information

All of my yarn is carefully dyed using professional grade acid dyes and are done in small batches to ensure beautiful semi solids and tonals. The hand dyed yarns are rinsed thoroughly until the water runs clear. Hand washing in lukewarm or cold water is my preferable method of handwashing. 

Because of the nature of hand dyed yarns - each skein differs slightly even when coming from the same dye pot. When knitting these skeins it is good practise to alternate every couple of rows. 

Different monitors show colours differently. I have to the best of my ability taken photo's that show the true colours on my laptop and phone.
