Care

Machine wash on gentle cycle with mild detergent like Eucalan in cool to tepid water temp. Do not use detergents with brighteners like Wool Light, Tide, etc. as these degrade the fibers and cause color fade. Never use bleach. To help fix color and remove odors add small amount of white vinegar to rinse water. Avoid excessive agitation as this causes felting and shrinkage. Squeeze out excess water and lay flat to dry. Do not dry in dryer.

Malabrigo Dye Lots

Please note that there are no dye lots for Malabrigo.  Malabrigo typically comes in bag lots of five or ten.  Skeins for each lot are hand-selected by Malabrigo dye artisans to be the best match.  However, even within the same lot, skeins may vary quite a bit.

I will do my best to "match" skeins and you may receive skeins from different lots. Photos illustrate the range of colorations within a single current colorway.  If no good match is available for the quantity of skeins you've ordered I will contact you to confirm best choice.

If you must have a particular skein I can try to accommodate - please make sure you're available through email in case I have to contact you. Contact me for any questions.
