What is the best way to care for my new Wales Street Yarn?

Superwash yarns may be washed in your washing machine with cold water, although handwashing in lukewarm or cool water with wool wash will preserve the life of your finished object.  All items should be laid flat to dry.

With hand dyed yarns, some minimal bleeding during the first few washes is common - particularly with reds, blues, and more saturated colors.  If you notice this, please rinse in cool water with wool wash until the water runs clear.
