Please note hand dyed colours can vary slightly within and between dye lots. This is what makes each skein uniquely beautiful. Please be sure to order enough yarn to complete your project to reduce the chance of differences between your skeins. To ensure random colour distribution, work from two skeins at once, alternating every few rows. At YAK we try to ensure that our photos represent colours as accurately as possible, but please be aware that these can vary depending on your computer monitor settings.
