How do I care for my yarns?

All yarns contain superwash (SW) merino, however, we do always recommend that you hand wash your knitwear. Please use cold or lukewarm water and lay flat to dry. We use colorfast acid dyes for dyeing yarn, and rinse until water runs clear. However even with all of this, there is a chance that some dye may bleed slightly in the first wash of your finished item. This is particularly true for highly saturated colors and speckled skeins. Because of this, we do recommend that you wash your items separately, especially for the first couple of washes.


Do you ship outside of the US?

At this time, we do not ship out of the United States.  


I'm not sure how much yarn I need for my project. What do you recommend I do?

Each skein is truly unique, just like you are. This is a normal part of the hand dyed process.  Though the colors used in a colorway are the same, there may be variations of color distribution between skeins. This is part of the fun. Enjoy the beauty of each skein. Please make sure to purchase enough yarn to complete your project.  This will help to ensure that the colors of your project will look cohesive.


Do you accept returns?
