Item details

**NOTE: This batch turned out a bit darker than normal in the base colors and is a OOAK set. The cream is more of a light sand. I will not be repeating this.**

"Festive Conifer" is a beautiful speckle-dyed yarn with a cream base color with shots of icy blue and speckles of bright deep green, brown, silver, and little flecks of yellow, orange, and blue that are reminiscent of twinkling lights. Every skein is unique! Skeins can vary quite a bit within a dye lot, and colors within the same skein will vary in intensity during the course of a project, resulting in lots of lovely colors as they mix and play with each other. Every stitch is a fun surprise!

"Festive Conifer" is a repeatable colorway and part of my Winter Colors. If you would prefer it on a different base or in a greater quantity, please PM me to discuss what I have in stock.

While this yarn is superwash treated, I recommend hand washing in cool to warm water and air drying for best results and increased project life. Please be aware that due to the nature of the dyeing process, your first wash of this yarn may result in some excess dye coming off in the rinse water. I do a final rinse with a little SOAK to help take care of any excess dye, but some colors are more persistent than others. I use professional acid dyes for permanent color and dye in a dog-friendly, smoke-free home. Please be aware in case you have allergies.

I do my best to take accurate and true pictures of my yarn with natural lighting. However, monitor settings all vary, and colors may appear slightly different. Please be sure to read the color description and message me if you have any questions or need further help.

Additional policies

All of my yarns are dyed with professional acid dyes and set to maintain color. While my home is smoke-free, it is not pet free. If you have allergies to dogs, please be advised to take that into consideration when ordering from me. I do my best to keep your yarn out of areas where my dogs are allowed, but it's impossible to prevent all possible transfer. Thank you for understanding!

I wash my yarn in a Scentless wool wash to help remove excess dye powder from the speckling process. If you need yarn without any wool wash, please contact me to set up a custom order. I am happy to work with you and your sensitivities!
