:: Want your yarn wound into balls? Let me know in the ‘notes to seller’ during check-out if you would like your skeins wound into center pull balls and I will do so free of charge.
:: Those pesky knots/joins are part of the milling process and you sometimes may find them in a skein. I try my best to leave out the knotty skeins for my own use but if one skips through on an update let me know and I will issue a partial refund. I want to keep my customers happy!
:: Color bleeding is normal for hand dyed yarns. It may take a couple of washings to release excess dyes from the yarn. I take special care when setting dyes and I thoroughly rinse the yarns however I’ve noticed that certain colors seem to bleed more than others. A good idea is to add some distilled white vinegar to your final rinse water, it will stop the bleeding. I also recommend using a gentle wool wash such as Soak, Eucalan, etc, to keep your wool soft and in the best condition possible.
:: I do my best not to fiddle so much with the photographs I put up here and make sure the colours appear as accurately as possible on my computer monitor. However every monitor is calibrated differently and colours may look differently from screen to screen.
:: I hand paint and hand dye using professional acid dyes like Jacquard and Ashford. I have also started dyeing yarns using natural dyes such as indigo, cochineal, heather, madder root, dock leaves, hawthorne, logwood extracts. My preferred method is single batch dyeing and only do kettle-dyeing on sweater quantity batches.
