When more than one skein of the same colourway is ordered, we will ensure to ship you the same dye lot. We dye in batches of 8’s (with some colourways only available in batches of 4), so if more than 8 (or 4) skeins are ordered, we will need to ship you two different dye lots that will be very close to each other. Variations will naturally exists, even within the same dye lots for hand dyed yarns. Please alternate between 2 – 3 skeins for optimal colour blending.

Swatch first and wash your swatches to see how the colours will react before working on colour work or big projects.  Depending on the shade and intensity of the darker colour, we recommend that you pre-wash their skeins before using…just like you would separate your brand new dark blue jeans from your whites.

Turquoise-based or magenta-based colourways are the hardest to exhaust.  It’s a good idea to use Color Catchers in the wash to help absorb possible excess dye so that it doesn’t deposit anywhere else

Here is a link to our current list of active and inactive colourways.
