where our yarn comes from
ethically sourced in north america, south america & europe. additionally, all of our yarn comes from farms that follow mulesing-free practices.
yarn is dyed in salt lake city, utah.
washing your yarn
hand washing all knit garments in lukewarm water and laying flat to dry on blocking mats or a clean towel is recommended.
a small amount of bleeding in your first few washes may occur, but if this continues to persist please contact us so we can address this issue.
hand dyeing process
all yarn is first soaked in a lukewarm water bath with citric acid to assure that your yarn absorbs all dye fully. after soaking, the yarn is either speckled or placed in a dye pot based on which colorway we are creating. once the water in the dye pot has returned to room temperature and the color has been set, the yarn is then rinsed and soaked in a wool wash to leave the yarn smelling nice and fresh. finally, we hang dry our yarn until fully dry.
