Hand coloring This wood is dyed by hand, which means, every skein is an unique specimen. Wool with the same name contains always the same basic colors, but there appear sometimes brighter, sometimes darker, sometimes dominates one color, sometimes the other. The hand dyeing are not identic reproducible also the quantity is limited, which is not a disadvantage for the skeins, but makes them more desirable.
Knitting tips When knitting lager pieces, the result will be especially nice by alternating between two balls, like knitting striped sweaters. The color progression of different skeins will then harmonize, without building up stripes. When working with high contrast yarn it is advised to sort all wool in lighter and darker shades in advance, so all colors can be distributed equal. For a project, the skeins should therefore visually fit, in sufficient quantity and not chosen by lot number. At following orders an appropriate selection quantity should be paid to.

Semisolid and Multicolors "Semisolid" are dyes that are actually uni colored, but have shades. Due to the wool as a natural product, the color is assumed not always evenly by the fibers. Light and dark color variations can occur within a skein and / or within a batch. This makes the skeins not just uni but semisolid. The following “Semisolids” are available in the selection Light, Medium, Dark: Magnolia, Tutu, Neptune, Petit Poison No. 5 and Amethyst. „Multicolors“ are dyes that contain multiple colors. All „Multicolors“ are available in the selection Light, Medium, Dark.
Wool is bleeding Sporadic it may occur that the wool is bleeding. In that case the wool could not hold the entire color. To fix the color in the yarn, the wool should be bathed in vinegar and afterwards washed in plain water. That process shall be repeated until no more color is washed out of the yarn. The wool does not lose its color intensity.
