Some may contain random flashing, surprising speckles, and unexpected bits of color. Please take the time to learn more about the process here so you can better appreciate these special colorways.

Hand-dyed yarn tends to vary slightly both between and within dye lots due to the nature of the dying process. If you are planning on working up a larger project which requires more than one skein, be sure to alternate skeins every two or three rows. This helps to hide any variation between skeins.
I strongly encourage taking the time to use the photos available in this listing as a reference for how the colorway will appear on each base offered. As is the case with hand-dyed yarn, slight variations in colorway between skeins of the same base is normal and to be expected, however any skeins within a given base that deviate drastically from my standard for the colorway, will be listed separately with the label “misfits”. Colorways will vary much more drastically across bases due to the difference in plies, fiber content, and whether the yarn is Superwash-treated. Another reason I encourage taking the time to check out the photos within each listing.
Please be sure to hand-wash all of your knitted items in cool water with a gentle wash. Superwash, smooperwash! It's best to use your hands the old fashioned way. And if a little bit of bleeding occurs on the first wash, never fear! It happens.
