Yarn Information

Care Information

Superwash wool is machine washable at 30 degrees, however I do recommend hand washing knitted items and drying them flat to extend their lifetime.

If you do choose to machine wash, I would recommend using a wool/delicates programme.

I use professional acid dyes to create colourfast yarn, and rinse my yarn until the water runs clear; however, it is recommended that you wash items made with this yarn separately when washing for the first time in case some colour bleeding occurs. 

Yarn is sold in a skein (hank) and requires winding into a ball or cake before you knit with it. If you don’t have winding equiptment or are unsure how to wind/cake your yarn then I am more than happy to cake it for you, please leave me a note when ordering.
