FAQ

About hand dyed yarns

Due to the nature of the hand dyeing process, each skein is unique. I have endeavoured to dye colorways as consistently as possible, but there will be variation between each skein and batch. Your monitor/device also may display colours differently, so please allow expect some variation between what you see on your screen and what you see in real life.

If you are concerned that the transition between the skeins will be visible, your options are to alternate skeins, or to use two strands of yarn together.

Please, please, buy one more skein than you think you need. My bases are pretty consistent, but dye lots vary. Just do as Angela says.

What's the difference between untreated yarns and superwash yarns anyway?

Superwash yarn has been treated with a coating to prevent it from felting. What this means is that unlike untreated wool, it is machine washable. However, excess heat can still damage superwashed yarn.

Untreated yarn is just that – it has not been treated once it is washed and spun. It requires more care when blocking and washing. It is environmentally friendly as no chemicals are used, and had a much lower carbon footprint as less transportation is required. Untreated yarn takes dye differently, and often requires more time in the dye pot.

Bottom line: Given the time that goes into handmade items, I recommend hand washing gently in cold water and blocking to dry regardless of superwash treatment or not.

Do you offer discounts for large orders?

Why yes I do! Sweater quantity orders (three or more of the same colourway) qualify for a 10% discount. Send me a message for a custom listing including the discount.

Custom and personalized orders

If you require more skeins than are listed or would like a colourway on a particular base, request a customization. I keep undyed stock on hand for this very reason. I can likely accommodate your needs.

My turnaround time is 3 - 5 business days for ready to ship / quick dye items and 2 - 3 weeks for custom and dyed to order items.

How do I know which needles and hooks to use with your yarns?

First and foremost, you should look to your pattern instructions to determine which weight of yarn is needed and which size of needle or hook to use.

If there are no such instructions, the Yarn Craft Council has an excellent Standard Yarn Weight chart that you can check out at: https://www.craftyarncouncil.com/standards/yarn-weight-system

Custom orders
