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 vs other fibers.
* Some images may show Coquina (fingering/sock), however, this product listing is for the DK weight (Coquina DK).
This yarn is typically dyed to order, shipping within 5 to 14 days.
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!
