Each skein is washed and rinsed after dyeing until the water runs clear, however you may still experience some color bleeding on the first wash. This is normal, and we suggest you hand-wash your finished product with cold water and a mild soap, and lay flat to dry. Superwash wool can be machine-washed, but handwashing will extend the life of your finished garment.

About Pre-Order Listings
Every pre-order listing will be up for a limited amount of time, during which you are able to order any quantity you would like from said listing. Since this is a one-woman show, it usually takes me some time to get through a pre-order. Each skein is made to order, and so the processing time for those listings will be anywhere between 5-7 weeks, depending on the number of orders I receive. I will dye the yarn, and then ship it to you once your order has been dyed in full. For more information on processing times, please take a look at our shipping policies page.
Is your packaging recyclable?
Yes! All of the packaging is recyclable or compostable. I care very much about the environment, and strive to provide eco-friendly packaging when preparing your order. Please reuse as much as you can!
When will my favorite colorway be in stock again?
Since I offer colorways on a collection basis, it's hard to say when a specific color will be offered again. Some things like OOAKs are one-time only offerings, so get them while you can! Others I may bring back if there's enough requests for them, or during our Re-runs collections.
Why do my skeins sometimes look different from each other?
This is the beauty of hand-dyed yarn! I try my best to keep colorways consistent with each other, and to make sure dye lots don't differ too much from each other. That said, there still will be some variance between skeins, and is part of my dye style. Dyes can be unpredictable, and show up differently on each of my bases as well. It's best to embrace that imperfect, human-made quality when enjoying hand-dyed yarns. :)
