This listing is for one skein of yarn. This yarn is custom dyed to order so you can choose your base. Important: the time it takes to dye and send your order will change depending on the time of the year and how busy we are. Current ship-by time frames will always be up-to-date and posted here: https://bluebarnfiber.com/pages/shipping-times . It’s easier to have this on a page of its own since the times change depending on how busy we are.
Please see our yarn bases page here: https://bluebarnfiber.com/pages/our-yarn-bases for a list and description of all of the base options available. (You may need to allow pop ups as this link will open in a new window. You can also click the Yarn Bases page at the top of our main menu to get to the same page).
By default, our yarn will come to you in a skein and you will need to wind it into a ball or cake before using it. We offer ball winding service separately if you do not wish to do this yourself (available here: https://bluebarnfiber.com/products/yarn-ball-winding-service-per-skein-purchase-this-if-you-cant-wind-skeins-into-balls-yourself?variant=33139200753763 ).
We highly recommend buying everything you need for your project all at once so I can do my best to ensure the yarn matches well. Yarn purchased at different times may not match perfectly. We also have a few colorways that will not be identical even if dyed at the same time, so we recommend alternating skeins if matching is a concern. This is typical for almost all indie dyed yarn, not just ours.
Please follow us on instagram at: https://www.instagram.com/bluebarnfiber/ for new colorways and ready to ship sets as they are released!
Superwash wool is special because it is treated in such a way that it will not felt the way normal wool does, so your stitches will remain crisp.
As with all hand dyed items, we recommend hand washing your yarn/finished item in cool water and laying it flat to dry. We rinse this yarn until the water runs crystal clear, but small amounts of excess dye may rarely come off with the first couple of washings. If this happens, rest assured that it is only excess dye and should not affect the coloring of your yarn in any way. If a large amount of bleeding ever occurs with any of our items, please contact us so we can make it right. We always recommend hand washing handmade items to preserve the longevity of your beautiful work.
We recommend using cool water and a neutral soap, such as baby shampoo, when blocking your finished item if you are knitting or crocheting it.
Extra note: I photograph our products with the utmost care taken to ensure that the color in the photos accurately represents what you will get. Please keep in mind that different monitors can display colors differently and there will also be slight variations from batch to batch.
Personal note: We are parents of a disabled daughter who was born with a rare condition called Dup15q. She faces severe challenges on a daily basis, and by shopping with us you help support my ability to stay home with her 24/7 the way I need to. Your business is very much appreciated.
