No chemicals other than soap and some spinning oils are used in making our yarns. Some chemicals used in hobby store yarns can be harmful to you and to the environment. We don't use these. As a result, there may be some hay left in the yarn which can be picked out.
Laundry care: For best results, products made from alpaca, wool or any natural fiber should be hand washed in cool water with limited agitation. Expect increased 'halo' or fuzziness after each washing. Lay the garment flat and let it air dry. Hot water and/or tumble drying will cause the yarn to felt and shrink.
