What to expect from yarn recycled from a sweater (please read!): * The yardage is manually counted. To account for errors I have deducted my totals by 5%. This way I don't over promise on yardage. You will be getting the yardage listed and then some.
* Washing- I wash and rinse the yarn several times. I use tea tree and lavender oils for their antimicrobial properties. The yarn with then gently washed in an unscented gentle wash to remove most of the tea tree and lavender smell.
* Hanging- Once rinsed the yarn is hung to dry in a shady spot in my yard. I do not weight the skeins to maintain the yarn's loft and bounce. As a result the yarn likely have subtle kinks that remain after being knit. This will not affect the usefulness of the yarn
*Some commercially knit yarn can be a weaker than what you may be used to. This won't be a problem unless you are planning on using this yarn under high tension. I have made a note of the yarn's strength in the description. I am glad to send you more information including a pull test video if you'd like!
* Manufacturers join new a new cone of yarn with small knots. If I come across a knot sometimes I will leave it in the skein. I have noted these knots above. I may, however, miss one. I try very hard to find them all but please understand that you may find one unexpectedly. The knots are usually tiny and were never noticeable in the finished knit sweater.
The small print: I have a cat. No dogs and no smoking. The cat is kept away from the yarn Please allow for variation in screen colors. Please ask any questions before ordering. If color is critical I can send you a sample and I will hold the yarn until you've received the sample. Convo me I accept returns only if I have misrepresented anything. I am not responsible for you not carefully reading the description or policies. Ask me anything. I am quick to respond to questions!
