Small batches hand-dyed in our studio located in Brisbane, Australia. We try to represent colourways as accurately as possible in our product photos. Individual skeins may vary slightly and we recommend you alternate between skeins every few rows on larger projects. Please ensure you buy enough to finish your project as future dye lots may have subtle differences.
