FAQs and Wool careTips for knitting with your wool
Due to the natural dyeing process, colour may vary between skeins, even if dyed in the same pot. I recommend alternating skeins when knitting to avoid pooling and remember, purchase what you need for your project.
How do I wash my precious knits?
I will only use natural dyes with high tannin properties to ensure strong light and colour fastness. However, to avoid the possibility of fading over time, I recommend that you only hand wash cool with care and lay them flat to dry. Never keep your woolens in direct sunlight for long periods of time.
Will my knits bleed?
Just like washing a pair of jeans, you may experience some excess dye running out. I gently wash all of our yarns after dyeing to ensure that any remaining dye is rinsed out. However, some colours may run.
Do I need to knit a swatch?
I recommend it, yes. I provide stitch per inch information for each product but every knitter has a slightly different style to the next. If you do decide to knit a swatch be mindful of how much yarn is required for your project - you may need to use the swatch to complete your piece.
I do my best to provide accurate representation of our products by professionally lighting and photographing, however the colour of the product may vary from the photos on different devices and monitor screens.
