Does your yarn bleed?
Queen’s Yarn Boutique yarn is hand dyed with professional acid dyes, but it may bleed a little. While I rinse the yarn after it is dyed, it is possible for some excess dye to remain. If excess dye remains, just rinse your project separately with cold water until the water runs clear.
Can I wash my finished project(s) in the washing machine?
Although superwash wool can be machine washed, I recommend hand washing your project in cold water and laying it flat to air dry for best results.
Why does my yarn look different than the shop listing picture?
Your yarn may look different than the listing picture. Each hand dyed skein is unique and skeins of the same colorway are always slightly different. Unless you receive the same skein that was photographed in the picture, your yarn will have subtle color variations. I always recommend alternating the yarn every few rows between the two skeins. Please note that different computers and mobile devices may display colors differently.
Do you have smokers in your home?
No. My yarn is hand dyed and stored in a smoke free home.
