I wonder if a yarn is just material or may be a Piece of art by itself?

Additional policies and FAQs

The additional decorative items on my artFotos are not part of the purchase.
You are buying only the article as described in words. Additional Fotos (exept the first one showing the article), are only there for information about color (comparison), and how a yarn will look like if used in a project.

Every effort is made to properly convey the correct color and structure of the yarns, fiber and handmade items. Please keep in mind, that some monitors will show colors differently, whilst I try my best to show the true color of any of my items, it is of course possible, that the color is different to what you expected.

Care instructions
In spite of professional finishing, and although the utmost care is being taken in spinning a durable yarn, handspun yarns, especially unplyed and artYarns are not as solid as industrial spun yarns.
All handspun yarns or items made from handspun yarns, should be washed carefully (and if possible by hand) in warm water with very little agitation. Due to the nature of handspun and especially artYans , great care should be taken when working with them. You should avoid hard pulling (tensile stress), rubbing (friction) and agitation to rejoice in them for a long time.

Plantdyes and natural dyes

Natural dyes are living colors. The hues can change depending on sort of light, season, weather and in contact with acids or alkalis.
Natural dyed yarns should be washed careful, seldom or not at all. Don't use bleaching detergents.
Plant dyes follow a natural aging process. They are never 100% lightfast.
You can conserve your yarncolors by avoiding direct radiation (f.e. not to dry them in sunlight) and storing them in the dark.
The hues of the dyed colors depend on used sort of water, location of plants and season of harvest.
They are not reproducible . Every dyeing process is unique.
