Care Instructions:

Although this is a superwash base, we recommend to wash it by hand using a gentle soap suited for wool. Use cold water and dry flat.

All of our yarns are throughly rinsed until the water runs clear. However, a bit of bleed may occur depending on the chemical composition of the water and/or the wool wash. We recommend to wash the knitwear separately or with similar colours.

This is a hand dyed yarn, and as such the colors may vary. Alternating skeins is recommended for projects that need more than one skein.

We take upmost care to reflect the colours of our yarn accurately, however they may slightly vary from the pictures.
