Caring For Your Yarn
While most of our bases include Superwash Merino, we HIGHLY recommend hand washing your knits for longevity. Hand washing not only protects the vibrancy of the dyed fibres but also helps to maintain the integrity of the wool. We suggest a 5-10 minute soak in cold water with an unscented and mild detergent meant for delicates or wool. Gently squeeze articles to remove water, do not wring them out.
No mater how you wash your items, they should ALWAYS be laid flat to dry on blocking mats or a clean towel.
It's normal for your yarn to bleed slightly in the first few washes, especially if the colourway is rich. Warm water and scented soaps can encourage colours to bleed.
PRO TIP: Swatching and washing your fibre is a great way to check colour fastness, not just your gauge.
