Item details

This beautiful skein of yarn is part of my To Dye For Collection, a collection of one-of-a-kind yarns born from taking the left over dye at the end of my dyeing session, and seeing what I can come up with. Each skein of yarn is truly unique as I experiment with new color combinations and hand-painting techniques. This yarn is ready to ship.

This listing is for one, one of a kind skein in the color pictured, shades of Lilac. This yarn was dyed on a super soft, 100% superwash merino wool, single ply sock base. Merino is some of the finest wool in the world and even though being lightweight, is known for its moisture wicking qualities, while keeping warm without overheating. Perfect for socks and one-skein projects like hats, mittens, cowls, baby items, shawlettes, etc.

I use only professional quality acid dyes in the hand painting process to ensure long lasting, brilliant colors. Although all of my yarn has been thoroughly washed in wool wash after the dying process, a slight amount of color may remain in the yarn, more often with darker colors; please wash your items with like colors, in cool water for the first wash or two just to be safe; warm water will make the possibility of any dye bleed worse. This merino can be machine washed in cool water and dried flat. To ensure years of enjoyment, I always recommend hand washing this fine yarn.

    I love this yarn! The colors are gorgeous and my package even contained some little bonuses! I bought this as part of a gift and I hate to give it away now. I will buy from Creating With Sticks again! Thank you Leah!

A FEW NOTES ON MY YARN
-All yarn is hand-painted or hand-dyed in small batches or sometimes even
one of a kind colorways. Please order enough yarn for your project at one
time to ensure it comes from the same dye lot. If you need more yarn than
what is listed, please contact me to see if a custom order on that colorway
is possible. As always with hand-dyed yarn, it is recommended when multiple
skeins, that you alternate skeins every other row or so.

-Speckles, Spots, Random Colors and Pooling- Hand-painted and dyed yarn
is created to be unique and random, sometimes uneven dye distribution will
occur. Variegated colors may pool depending on the length of rows or
repeats and random spots of dye may appear here and there. This is the
beauty of hand-painted and hand-dyed yarn, buyer beware. I try not to
create long color repeats in order to avoid pooling, but sometimes it will
still happen.

-Each skein of yarn is reskeined after the dyeing/drying process, this ensures
that any knots there may be are found and I deal with them in the winding
process, not you. This process also allows for you to see what the yarn
actually looks like in its ready-to-use state, not with the colors all blocked
together.

-Yarn winding service- Yarn will be wound into balls/cakes free of charge at
customer request. Please select this option from the drop down menu
when purchasing yarn.

-Garment Care- Although many of my yarns are considered superwash, not
all acid dyes live up to this and even superwash yarn can deteriorate over
time. I recommend washing all hand-painted and hand-dyed yarn
separately, by hand, with a mild wool wash and cool water; this will keep the
item looking like new and prevent any accidents, just in case the dye would
happen to bleed. Dye bleed is rare and occurs mainly in darker colors, but
may occur in any color, especially if washed in warm water.

-Yarn is hand-painted and stored in a smoke-free, pet friendly environment.
I have a husband, teenage daughter and two dogs, but never fear, when the
yarn is out and it is dye time, they all run far, far away. All yarn is stored in
plastic containers with locking lids.

-Wholesale- Wholesale orders are available. If you are a retailer and would
like to stock Creating with Sticks yarn, stitch markers or other items in your
yarn shop, please send me a message for details.
