Our intention is that your experience is a wonderful one and you will always enjoy using our products from first receipt to several years from now when you are still enjoying the amazing garment made with LYDIA yarn.
All yarns produced by LYDIA are dyed using high quality commercial grade dyes, unless advertized otherwise, the dyes are acid based. This means they will last longer than other dyes and the color will set stronger limiting the "bleed" of color out of your yarn and onto other items nearby.
Here are a few tips and guidelines to help extend the life and vitality of your yarn;
*It is possible that your yarn may bleed a small amount during first washing, this is normal and is more likely with darker or intense colors. The bleed should rinse out on first washing. When you wash your garment for the first time be sure to wash it alone with a gentle soap intended for wool or hand knits in cool water.
* All garments made with LYDIA yarn should be hand washed and laid flat to dry. It is not recommended that any yarn be put into a machine, even with the superwash label. LYDIA yarns are not machine washable.
*Color variations are likely and can add to the charm of kettle dyed yarns. All yarns are dyed in small batches with no more than 5 skeins in the same dye lot. However, even then there may be variations in color from one skein to another. It is recommended that the quantity of yarn needed is purchased together and alternating skeins are used when knitting or crocheting larger garments.
