Fuzz Family yarn is dyed in small batches of 2-4 skeins per lot. If using more than one skein per color way, its highly recommended that you alternate skeins every 3-5 rows.
We take great care in rinsing skeins thoroughly. Some bleeding may occur when first washing your knits.
We recommend always washing your knits by hand in cool water with a high quality wool wash EVEN if using a super wash.
