bases

Like all hand dyed yarns, each skein is unique, so please alternate skeins for projects requiring more than one skein.

care notes: I always recommend handwashing in cool water with gentle wool wash and laying your finished items flat to dry.  This process will preserve the life of your finished object.  However, because these yarns are made with superwash wool, you may also machine wash cold and lay flat to dry.
