Please note that colours will vary between computer-phone-tablet monitors and dye baths, and though we try our best to post colour-accurate photos, variations should be anticipated. For any questions or concerns about colour exactness, please visit our studio to look and feel the yarn in person.
Natural dyes fade beautifully with time and may run a bit when washed but will retain their vibrancy with proper care.
