Care Instructions:

If this is going to a non-crafting friend tell them to hand wash in cool water using a wool soap such as Allure Fiber Wash. Lay flat to dry out of direct sunlight. You CAN wash this in the machine on gentle but after spending so many hours making something why would you do this? 

Each skein is hand dyed by me in batches of three in my home kitchen just outside of Boston, Massachusetts in beautiful New England. I use professional wash fast dyes and set the color using citric acid, then once your yarn is cooled I wash it in Allure Fiber Wash and let it air dry. It is not unusual to have your finished item bleed a wee bit the first time you wash it; this doesn't mean your colorway wasn't properly set. My colorways are very saturated and sometimes some excess dye particles remain after I have washed and rinsed the yarn.

I do have a dog but she doesn't shed. She's not allowed near the yarn. Neither of us smoke.
