Care Instructions

A little extra care will ensure you prolong the life of your projects. Our yarns are machine-washable on a cool, delicate cycle, however hand-washing in cold water with a small amount of wool wash is highly recommended. Lay flat to dry, never use a dryer. Washing your gauge swatch is advised, especially if using contrasted, dark, or saturated colors.


Though our yarns are fixed to stabilize the pigments, some batches may experience color bleeding. If you notice your hands are getting stained while knitting or crocheting, it also may be the pH of your skin pulling the dye molecules out. Climate, water quality, and detergents may also affect dye stability.


If you are experiencing bleeding/rubbing off/staining issues, there are a few ways to solve this depending on how far along in the project you are.

To test prior to winding your skein, take a white paper towel, dampen it slightly with room temperature water, and leave the skein on the towel for a few minutes to see if any color comes off. You can also try rubbing a dampened cotton cloth against the skein, not paper though, as it may shred.
If there is evidence of bleeding, it’s easiest to keep the yarn tied in the hank, and rinse the skein in a bowl or sink full of room temperature water. Do not twist or wring the yarn, as that will cause tangling or even felting due to the tiny hook shaped wool fibers. Make sure the water is completely clear before hanging the skein to dry.

If you noticed the rub off while winding it up and some of the yarn’s still in the skein, re-skein it, loosely secure it with a few figure eight ties and soak it in a bath of room temperature water (you may add some gentle wool soap if you wish). Leave it in the bath for about 30 minutes or until the water cools, and rinse with room temperature water until the water runs clear. Let it dry thoroughly.

If you have already started knitting and don’t want to unravel your project, thread a lifeline through your live stitches and secure with a knot. Wind the rest of your yarn back into a hank and loosely secure with a few figure eight ties. Continue by soaking and rinsing it as described in the first option.
