Second picture showing different three shades of blue.

Hand wash only with cold water and mild soap, lay flat to dry.

When creating something that uses different colourways to create stripes, fair isle, mosaic,..., I would recommend that you swatch first, and wash your swatch to make sure yarn won`t bleeding.

The colour can change slightly over time.

Kindly warning - as with any Indigo dyed fabric they do something called “crocking" - rubbing off dye when dry, it is a different problem from dye that runs when it's wet. Can happen than your hand will be bit blue while you are knitting. It is just one of those things, won't last for forever....


FAQs

Washing and care. I am doing my best to rinse and wash every skein individually to remove any excess dye. It is strongly recommended to wash any yarn or fibers in ph neutral solution, it is also recommended than ordinary dishwashing liquid (dishwashing detergent) will do the job. Water temperature shouldn't be more than 30 degree Celsius, or room temperature, cold. Hand wash only, (if you give it so much time to make it, some nice bath time just add to the relation) Keep vinegar or any acid away Any project should be lay flat to dry. Also try to avoid direct sun for long time. As any natural dye, colour will fade by the time, depends on the use and storage condition.

My wool is make in small amount. Plants are foraged locally, in woods, on the fields. I am using also dyed extracts - which are highly concentrated powder or liquids from whole dyestuff. For mordant I am using allum (Aluminum potassium sulfate)

If you would like to something special please contact me. Please my lovely people don`t be surprised if you received recycled envelop or paper, as far they are clean, smell clean, I think it is good to reusing stuff.
