Colors are captured as accurately as possible. Because each computer monitor is different, colors may appear differently. These are hand painted, although the dyes used are the same stock, there will be small variations in intensity and color length between skeins.
If you would like a larger quantity for a single project, convo me, and I will be happy to get the quantity you need matched as closely as possible. If needed,I can do a custom dye session for your yarn.
I recommend finishing knitted and crocheted pieces by laying the washed pieces out on a thick terry towel and smoothing to size and shape. I don't use pins in blocking my bamboo based items.
I recommend finishing woven pieces by washing on delicate, protecting fringes if used. Spin dry the peices and gently tumble until just damp. Hard press with an iron on the cotton/rayon setting. Future washings will just need a light ironing to remove wrinkles after drying.
This yarn has been washed in hot water after dyeing with professional fiber reactive cold process dyes. Minimal residual bleeding may be seen in very dark colors on the first wash.
