CARE RECOMMENDATIONS:
Even though it is superwash merino wool, I recommend hand washing and lay flat to dry (yes, I do put my hand knit socks in the washer on the hand wash / gentle cycle and then hang to dry. I hand wash and lay flat to dry all my shawls, sweaters, etc.,)

PROCESS:
All yarn is hand dyed by me in small batches of no more than 4 skeins in my home based dye studio in North Florida.

After dyeing, all yarn is pampered in a gentle soak of fragrance free handmade wool wash before being dried.

Yarn is packaged in an organza bag and labeled with yarn fiber, weight, and care recommends. As a thank you, a tea bag and stitch marker / progress keeper is included in each order.

Gift wrapping is an optional add-on listing.

Winding into a cake is an optional add-on listing.

ABOUT HAND DYED YARN:
Due to the nature of hand dyed yarn, there may be variations in the skeins from the same dye batch.

If buying more than one skein of the same color, I’ll always do my best to color match the skeins for you.

If using more than one skein in your project, I recommend alternating skeins every couple rows to ensure color variety and deter pooling.

I try to represent the colors the best that I can; please keep in mind there are differences from monitor to monitor.

Frequently Asked Questions

Care instructions

I’d suggest delicate or handwash cold and lay flat to dry. Even if the yarn is superwash, I still suggest to err on the side of caution and hand wash in cold water. Sometimes colors may bleed the first time washed if it is a deeply saturated color or if the water you are using is hot. Cool water and a dab of hand soap is really all you need.

Yarn color bleeding

Yarn can bleed the first time being washed - especially dark colors. However, to reduce the chance I fully exhaust the color from each dye pan and soak each skein after dyeing in a wool wash and then a clear water soak. If I see color running, I change the water and go through the steps again. Any bleeding you see should be minimal to non existent

Are there knots in my yarn?

You should see 3 to 4 big loops that are tied with knots (loops are called figure 8 ties) around your skein. They are to keep your yarn from twisting into a big mess. They aren’t actually knots in the yarn. They are knots to keep the yarn straight and tangle-free.

Occasionally there might be a knot that came from the mill or such. I do the best that I can to keep that from happening; but, I’m human.

Large (Sweater or blanket) quantity

Yes! I do large quantities. If you don’t see that amount available of a color that you need, just message me and I’ll take care of it. I’m happy to do large quantities.

Why is my yarn not a solid color?

That’s because that is the beauty of artisan hand dyed yarn. We want to see the variations in light and dark. The depth variation adds beauty to your finished project. It is a hallmark of a hand dyed yarn to have tonal variances.

What is a dye lot?

A dye lot is the number of skeins dyed at one time in a kettle.

However, even skeins from the same dye pot can vary. It’s a hand made process. I take great care to ensure if you order multiple skeins of a color that they are both as close as possible. They will not match 100%. I would say they will match 95%.

Yarn photos

I take photos of my yarn on my iPhone.

I use a white backdrop in front of a window. I only color correct the photos to get the picture to as close to the actual color as possible. I don’t use any filters on my inventory photos.

Yarn photos shown on a wooden background are taken on a wooden table in my studio under natural room lighting.

Colors show differently on different monitors and screens. I try to get the colors as close to true as possible.

Where is the yarn sourced from?

My wool is sourced from South America. It is mulesing (a form of animal cruelty) free.

Color variations

Small batch hand dyed yarn is an art. It’s like cooking. No matter how careful you are with following a recipe exactly, there’s variations. Same thing applies to yarn. Once the dye is in the pot, the yarn may strike the color differently even in the same dye pot. Meaning one skein could have more or less of a color than the skein in the pot right next to it. If you are buying more than one skein I recommend alternating every few rows (most indie dyers recommend the same thing).
