All of our yarns are hand washable and care instructions are provided on the back of the labels. Great care is taken to wash out any remaining dye particles, but some colors 'set' better than others, so you might see some residual dye in the water when you wash your fabric.

Because of this, we recommend the following washing instructions:

  • Use cold water and very mild soaps that are appropriate for fine fibers.
  • Soak the garment for a very brief time, and then rinse in clear water.

The first time you wash your garment, you might see a bit of color in the water. Add 1/4 cup of white vinegar to the last rinse.

We also recommend Eucalan, a product we carry, to wash all of our yarns. It is a great washing agent for fine fibers and does not require rinsing. In fact, it should not be rinsed, which will save you time and conserve water!

Note: La Perfecta, Matilde, and Martina are a machine washable wools. Use a gentle cycle with like colors for best results. Sock yarn is also machine washable if noted "superwash" on yarn label.
