Item details

Handmade item

There is this place in the Indian ocean called Reunion Island. A remote place, with remote customs. People there will pray to St Expedit, and the landscape of the island is littered with altars and grotto at his image. A cave in major town, a hut in a field or a hole in the rock at an hairpin bend of the road; all will be painted blood red - and sometimes also adorned with red arums lilies. To recall of the saint's centurion uniform. These never fail to intrigue me on every of my visit to the island

Additional policies

Washing : Hand wash only, in cold water and dry flat. You can use wool soap, or shampoo can do as well (I use baby shampoo when washing the yarn coming off the dyeing pot).
Some colours will bleed when washed. You can use white vinegar to stabilize the colours if you are washing several hand dyed colours at one time.

Photography : I endeavor to photograph the yarns with getting the colours as right as possible. But please be aware that colours rendition do vary from one computer, tablet or phone screen to another. When you get your yarn, it might look slightly different from the picture.

The laws of hand dyed yarns : because of the process of hand dyeing yarns, a skein may be looking slightly different from another (even within a same batch), and a dye lot may be lighter/ darker than the next. It may not look like it when you hold the skeins in your hands, but once knitted up it's all different business... I recommend you alternate your skeins every two or three rows/rounds to ensure a lovely uniformity in the colour and that your garment will look beautiful.

Gauge : I find gauges very subjective. I for one pretty much never gauge as a yarn or pattern recommends, and end up going down a needle size. Please follow the gauge instructions on your chosen pattern and the yarn weight it calls for. Any question, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me; I'm here to help!

Custom orders : if you'd like a jumper or cardigan worth of yarn, please get in touch and I will dye a fresh lot or two for you, depending on how much you require. It will help with colour consistency (see "The laws of hand dyed yarns" above).
Available with Explorer Sock and Explorer Sport (dye lot = 400g); Wanderlust DK, Wanderlust 4ply, Passenger and Wanderer Aran (dye lot = 500g).

Allergy : If you are severely allergic to cats, please note that Phileas Yarns HQ is home to a cheeky feline friend who, despite my best effort to keep her away from it, may manage to leave a hair or two on the yarn. She likes to think her job is to run quality surveys of the yarn I dye for you!

Miscellaneous : I am a French native speaker. Having lived in the UK for over 10 years now, I am fully bilingual. Si vous avez quelconques questions a propos de la laine Phileas Yarns, n’hésitez pas! Je vous assisterez du mieux que je peux...
