All of our smooshie soft yarn is hand dyed in small batches. This can cause variances in colourways, so please consider the project you're working on - I recommend alternating skeins every 2 rows on projects using more than one skein. Monitors can make colours look different than true. Some colours are very saturated and have a tendancy to release small amounts of dye into the wash water. Even small amounts can be absorbed into lighter colours. Reds are notorious for this and using warm or hot water will make it worse. Please don't soak items of multi-colours - hand wash and change water if water becomes discoloured.
We are happy to produce more of any colourway you need - give us a bit of time and we’ll make it happen.
