Care

Silk or silk content yarns are best hand washed in tepid to warm water. Never use bleach on silk as this causes yellowing. To brighten silk, use white vinegar or filtered lemon juice in the rinse water. Lay flat to dry. Excessive agitation will cause silk fibers to pill.

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.
