Does hand-dyed yarn bleed?

The majority of my yarns won't ever bleed at all, though some yarns that demand very saturated dyes (and cottons) may show tints of color left in water when you hand wash. This is harmless, will not affect the item, and it shouldn't transfer color to any other items, but if you are worried, just use a "color catcher" while washing.

Care instructions

I only use professional, permanent dyes on my wool, however I advise always hand-washing your fine knits in cool water and a gentle soap no more than once a year (if that), no matter the fiber -- even with a Superwash wool, hand-washing will lengthen the lifetime of your item and allow it to keep it's shape much better.

Can I knit or crochet from the yarn as soon as it arrives?

No -- all yarn arrives in a "twisted skein" which comes apart into a "hank" or "loop." If you try to work from this hank, you will have a tangled mess on your hands in no time. Before you use the yarn, you need to wind it into a ball. You can do this with a winder and swift, having a friend hold the hank for you while you wind it, or using the back of a chair. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqMpAAtaTyI

What is OOAK?

OOAK means "One of a Kind" -- this is a unique hand-dye that I have done on these yarns only and cannot be repeated -- a truly one of a kind colorway just for you!
