All yarns are hand dyed by Capi, owner of The Yarn and Us, with professional, permanent and light fast acid fiber dyes.
*Guidelines above are approximations.
All the fibers, we sell, are specially selected for their softness. Brian always tells customers, “if Capi won’t knit with it, she won’t sell it!” It’s taken Capi five years to find the best dyes and find her own signature small batch technique. Her dyed yarns have a clear and crisp depth of color without smudginess.
Please check the shipping time above for the lead time for me to create your hand dyed skeins. My recipes are carefully recorded and reproducible, however since each skein is hand-created individually, there may be variations from batch to batch - please order enough for your project for best match. Alternating skeins while knitting is a good practice to blend variations between skeins, should you wish to do so. Your happiness is our top priority - and we are very proud of our excellent feedback. Please contact us if you are dissatisfied with anything you purchase from The Yarn And Us.
