COLOUR ON YARN
As with all hand dyed yarns, each colour batch is unique as I kettle dye in small amounts. No two skeins will be identical and there will be natural variation even within hanks of the same batch, so alternating skeins is recommended throughout a project or – if the skeins look very close in colour, for the final few rows of a skein – to blend skein colours more gently and not get harsh colour changes at the join. Please try to ensure that you buy enough for your project as it is impossible to recreate a batch exactly once it has sold.

I aim to exhaust all dyes in the dyebath to keep water pure and reduce all possible negative impacts on the environment. If you are intending on using one of the darker/more saturated hues with a pale colour please give it a soak first to be TOTALLY safe to avoid any bleed.

Due to their chemical compositions some colours will naturally release dye for a few washes, even when completely colourfast, so please wash and test your swatches before starting a colourwork or striped project to avoid disappointment.

COLOUR ONLINE

Please note that colours will always vary between monitors – this is a natural fact of shopping online. Though I strive to take photos that are as true to the actual colour as possible, what is rendered on your screen is your monitor’s approximation of colour using it’s specific hardware – which will most likely be different than mine.

To help with this, I include a written description of the colour to specify what I see in real life in order to help you with what you are seeing on your screen. If you have any doubts about the colour and need a specific hue, please contact me and we will sort it out by email! I know how important getting the right colour can be. 😉
