Yarn Type - fine lace weight.
Yarn composition: 70% alpaca, 30% silk

Quality control: We re-skeined and checked this yarn after dyeing it and would advise that it has NO detectable imperfections (joins, slubs, knots etc.)
Care: This yarn can be gently hand-washed, but it is possible that there will be some color bleeding (especially with red based colors). Also, if you have made fringes or tassles, these definitely will NOT wash, so dry cleaning would be the best option. DO NOT tumble dry! Finished items can be pressed with a warm iron under a cloth.

If you buy something and it really isn't what you expected, we will always be happy to refund it if you send it back to us, but you are responsible for the return postage costs.
