This yarn base is half cotton and cotton doesn't hold the dyes used for wool. The result is a less intense, more serene version of these colorways.
Instructions for Care
Hand wash or gentle machine on cold, with gentle detergent or wool wash only, dry flat.
We recommend hand-washing all of our products (no matter what the manufacturer says) with a gentle wash. Eucalan and Soak are two of our favorites. This will extend the life of your yarn and projects!
