IMPORTANT

When looking at the colourways online it is important to realise that some colours are difficult to portray on computer monitors and you will find that the colours are actually more rich and vibrant in real life. Some of my colourways include a beautiful rich aqua colour which is difficult to portray accurately. It may show up as a pale washed-out aqua colour. Rest assured, you will not be disappointed when you see the vibrance of the real product.

Some of the intense colours may result in a small amount of colour bleed in the first wash or when felting. Do not be alarmed, it will not alter the appearance of the wool. It’s just that I would rather this than risk making the sliver difficult to spin by over handling. Unlike many acid dyes, the dyes I use have low toxicity, no need to worry.
