All yarns and fibres are dyed using high quality synthetic Acid Dyes with the highest ratings for wash- and colour-fastness for this class of dyes. Many of the bases and fibres offered are Superwash treated BUT to best preserve the quality of colour, I recommend Hand Wash in COLD water for all products. If you wish to try Machine Wash, please TEST with your SWATCH first, and use the Gentle/Wool setting if your machine has such. In ALL cases, please Lay FLAT to dry.
All yarns and fibres have been washed and rinsed clear after the dyeing process is completed. Different soaps, and water sources can affect how these hand-dyed yarns may perform for you for washfastness. I HIGHLY recommend that when using multiple contrasting colours for your project to TEST WASH your SWATCH by the same method you will care for the finished item. Its best to know up front, what will happen, before you knit the entire project. If in doubt, soak the swatch/item in plain COLD water with a glug of household vinegar added to test for fastness. If this yields a satisfactory result, try adding a few drops of your soap/detergent of choice and check the results again in a few minutes. Faint tints released in the presence of certain wash/soap products may occur and should not persist. Please contact me through the customer service email address should you have any concerns about your purchase.
Oddballs — These are perfectly good yarns, but often are One-of-a-Kind colourway experiments, or colourway misfits. They will be labelled as Oddballs or OOAK.
