If you need several of the same colour for a project, please order them all together so I can ensure that they are all from the same dyelot, as dyelots can vary.

All our products are dyed in a smoke free and pet free environment.

We thoroughly rinse and scour our products of residual dye, but they cannot be guaranteed colourfast.

We always try to portray our colours as accurately as possible, but please be aware that different monitors display colours in different ways.
