Hand dyed by Louie & Lola Yarns in small batches using professional quality acid dyes and heat set to ensure colours that will last.
Please ensure you buy enough yarn for your project at the same time, as colours between dye batches can vary. Even within the same dye batch skeins will vary - that is the beauty and nature of hand dyed yarn - every skein is unique and individual.
Every effort has been made to remove any excess dye from the yarn, however a little may remain, particularly with dark and rich colours. It is therefore recommended to gently hand wash your hand dyed projects on their own, in cold water, with wool wash or a mild detergent.
