While this yarn is machine washable, I always recommend hand washing to extend the life of your hand knits. Dry flat.
As with all hand dyed yarn, expect subtle color variations between skeins. It is always best to alternate skeins on projects calling for more than one skein of yarn. Dyes are color and light fast and should not run or fade.
Every effort has been made to represent yarn colors as accurately as possible. Please note, however, that every computer monitor varies slightly in the way that they display colors.
All orders are thoughtfully packaged (suitable for gift giving) in tissue paper and tied with lovely charcoal gray and white twine.
