Please note that we are offering a "dyed to order" option for this base - if we do not have enough skeins in stock for your project select "dyed to order" and we will ship your skeins to you within two weeks from order date. Skeins are dyed in 4 skein batches, we recommend alternating skeins when working on large projects.
We do our very best to represent the yarns and colours in our photos, however please note that these are all hand dyed in small batches and not all skeins are the same despite being from the same batch - please make sure to alternate rows between skeins of the same colour in larger projects.
Please note when soaking and washing your finished garments that due to the hand dyed nature of the yarns there may be some colour in the bath water only (no colour transfer will occur) - this is perfectly normal and expected for saturated colours. This is true of all hand dyed yarns due to variations in water content despite our washing the yarns and fibres to clear running water in our studio.
