Hand Dyed Yarn
Please be sure to be mindful that the actual yarn colour may differ from what you see on your monitor.  All yarns are dyed in small batches, sometimes individually and at different times, so the skeins you purchase may vary slightly even within a dye lot. If you order more than one skein, I will try to choose those that go well together. 

It is commonly advised, that if you have purchased 2 or more skeins for a project and want to aim for a good colour transition, alternate the skeins every couple of rows/rounds or when starting a new skein alternate a few rows with the old skein.

The dyes I use are commercial grade so your yarn should not fade, they are non -toxic with low impact on the environment.  I don't use any harsh chemicals in any step of my dying process.
The very best care has been taken to make sure that the skein you are purchasing has been made colour fast. Each skein goes through an extra steaming process then rinsed out until any excess colour has left the fibre and is then allowed to dry naturally.

Quality Control
Every Skein goes through quality control.
Unless the skein you are buying has been re-skeined , the skein that you buy stays in its original state as when I purchased it from the suppliers.  I will usually re-skein if the skein becomes messy. I personally dislike knots in yarns but I unfortunately am not able to control this, However if you receive more than 2 knots in your skein please do provide feedback, I can then feed this back to my suppliers.

Your Skein has been dyed in a smoke-free, pet free environment.
Once a skein has been dyed and passed quality control its labelled and stored for future purchases.

 Returns Policy
If you have any concerns with your order, please do contact me as soon as possible so I can try to rectify.  Customer satisfaction is extremely important to me, I will try my very best to make sure you are happy with your purchase(s)You may return your package as received within 14 days of receipt for a refund.  Return postage will be at your own expense.
