Okay, so I haven't left for my trip yet, and I just can't stay away from the yarn. I can't help it. I love what I do.
Here's, "Eugene", and it's dyed to order on your favorite base/weight!
I'm working on a lot of new things for you all, in addition to fulfilling orders. I am not taking orders for Dyed To Order yarn. However, please message me if there is something you wish to order that is not in the shop. I'll do my best to help.

Additional policies and FAQs
- PLEASE READ -

**DYED TO ORDER** -Please allow 3-4 weeks for turnaround.

-Each hank is meticulously dyed/painted by hand, and is therefore unique. Variations exist even when yarn is dyed in the same lot. It is a good idea to order the full amount you need while available, as colors vary from batch to batch within the same colorway. I recommend choosing skeins in the same lot, and then rotating them as you knit/crochet.

-I use only professional grade washfast acid dyes, along with citric acid, or basic distilled white vinegar. If you have sensitivities/allergies, please let me know in the NOTE TO SELLER section at checkout time. All fiber is soaked thoroughly before dyeing to ensure proper dye absorption, and thoroughly rinsed in a wool-safe detergent, after dyeing is complete, to ensure minimal bleeding. I do my best to remove excess dye, but I still recommend washing finished project(s) individually, in COLD water. Any discharge of color at the time of washing does not indicate color loss from fiber itself, but is merely excess, and should not be of concern. I encourage you to use gentle detergents/wool wash, because highly concentrated detergents, and those including oxiclean-like chemicals, can not only strip color, but can actually damage the fiber itself.

-I do my best to accurately represent true colors, but I cannot account for individual variations in monitor settings.


****Notes About Dyed To Order Bases****
I often stock the same weights and blends, but occasionally will have other options available. You will find your available choices for that particular colorway, in the drop down box, when choosing your base/weight.


Yarn Base-Weight Options for Dyed To Order Purchases:

*Although many bases are superwash, I recommend hand washing your projects individually, and in COLD water. This will help to extend the life of your finished project, as well as prevent unwanted discharge of dye.*

-NOT all bases are suitable for dyeing ALL colorways- You will see your options for each colorway, in the drop down menu.
