Care Instructions and Tips

Yarn

  • Hand wash in cold water with a mild detergent/wool wash, don't soak for long, hang flat to dry (I recommend this even when the yarn is superwash treated, so it stays beautiful for longer. If you're pressed for time, superwash yarn can be machine washed in the delicate cycle).
  • Although I do my best to rinse the fibres thoroughly, some dye bleeding can still happen in the first few washes, especially for colours in the red and blue spectrum. This can be exacerbated if your water is hard. I advise you test your skeins for bleeding before starting a project, particularly if you're pairing light and dark colours.
  • Store your woollens in a well ventilated area with moth-repelling products - lavender sachets, cedar balls or specialised chemical products are recommended. Inspect your cupboard/drawers regularly for pests to avoid nasty surprises.
  • Planning a large project? Make sure you buy enough yarn for its completion! Our fibres are hand dyed in small batches and no two skeins are alike, plus you might encounter a larger difference between skeins of the same colourway if they're from different dye lots.
  • Using more than one ball of yarn? Alternating skeins is highly recommended to avoid variations and making sure your project looks cohesive throughout. This is also a great way to prevent pooling (sections of colour "clumping" together in one area).

Wool tops/roving/batts

  • If spinning, treat your finished skein like you would a delicate commercial yarn. See above for more details.
  • Don't store the fibre in a way that'll keep it squished for long. Wool has memory and will retain the shape it's been kept in (the good news is, it'll also bounce back once washed.)
