Good-to-Know Things

Thank you for stopping at my shop! I am a lover of yarn, knitting and colour. I dye quality bases with professional, colourfast and washfast acid dyes. I won't sell any hank that I wouldn't consider purchasing myself. Generally, I dye in small batches of about 400g - 600g or 5 hanks. I can usually accommodate larger quantities - convo me and let's talk.

PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION accompanying my listings as I list the colours used as well as anything notable about the yarn, which, in combination with the pictures should fully illustrate each colourway. I take pictures of 3 skeins from each batch - the yarn in the pictures is usually from the currently-listed batch unless it is a very close match to previous pictures.

I make every effort to represent the true colours of the yarn in the pictures but we all know that screens and monitors differ. If you are at all unsure about the colour please contact me and I will send more pictures and/or provide more details. My guess is that if you are shopping for hand dyed yarn you like colour and don't mind talking about it ad nauseum, like me. I want you to LOVE your yarn.

I consider one knot or join in a hank to be acceptable. I also may re-skein after photographing and prior to shipping if the hank became tangled.

If you are using multiple hanks of the same colourway I recommend you alternate every two rows or so, as even those from the same pot can differ noticeably. The individuality of each hank is part of the charm and beauty of small-batch hand dyed yarn.

To assure them a long, beautiful life, please hand wash and air dry your finished objects, regardless of the "superwash" designation.

My studio is in a smoke-free but dog-friendly home (the pooch is hypo-allergenic, regularly groomed and isn't generally interested in my yarn). Dyed hanks are stored in bags in closed plastic bins.

If you would like SQs or a specific colourway that isn't currently listed please don't hesitate to contact me. If you are interested in a colourway on a different base, I can usually do that, too - send me a note.
