All yarns are hand dyed in small batches using professional quality acid dyes and heat set to ensure colours that will last.
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.
