Our yarns are dyed by hand in small batches. Every skein is unique due to the artisan nature of hand dyeing process. To achieve an even colour distribution in larger projects, alternate skeins every couple of rows.
We take great care to represent the colours of our yarns as accurately as possible but please remember that colors may vary from monitor to monitor.
