Yarn Information

Care Information

I highly recommend hand washing all your knitted items and drying them flat to extend their lifetime and reduce the risk of felting or damaging the item.

Superwash wool is widely considered to be machine washable but if you do choose to machine wash, I would recommend using a wool/delicates programme. Be aware that some blends may contain both superwash and non superwash components (e.g. Merino/Cashmere/nylon blends), that won't survive a trip through the washing machine. 

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 hand-dyed 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 equipment 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.
