ABOUT USA DK:

This is a SMALL BATCH yarn. Every time it's produced, it's a small number of farms, merino sheep (very cool). This means, there are minor differences between these batches of produced yarn. When you are ordering, make sure to order everything you need all at once. We will match the yarn batches if you buy all at once and the same colorway. If you order multiple colorways on USA DK in the same order, they may not be the same batch of yarn. But all batches of USA DK do match specs, and they will knit up well together and block out the same. Support small farmers, sheep farms, and USA mills with this yarn!!

YARN REQUIREMENTS for SAILAWAY PATTERN:

These yardage estimates are for both DK and Worsted Weight.

MC: 900 (1000, 1210, 1331, 1464, 1611, 1772, 1949) yards/823 (914, 1005, 1106, 1217, 1338, 1472, 1619, 1781) meters

CC1: 82 (90, 100, 110, 121, 133, 146, 161, 177) yards/75 (82, 91, 101, 111, 122, 134, 147, 162) meters

CC2: 78 (86, 95, 105, 115, 126, 139, 153, 168) yards/71 (79, 87, 96, 105, 116, 127, 140, 154) meters

**Note, for the samples we knit up for lolodidit, the yardage is tight on MC. If your yardage calls for just a tad more of the next skein, I would definitely get the extra skein. For example, the size I knit called for 4.1 skeins of MC, I dyed 4 skeins, but I should have gotten 5 skeins, as I only had a tiny amount of MC left at the end, which was a little stressful**

GENERAL INFO

The yarn will be dyed in the same batch at the same time.

If we have the yarn already ready to ship, we will ship it to you only if it's all from the same dye date. (Dyed at the same time on the same day).

I dye in extremely small batches. Some colorways I dye only 1 skein at a time, so if you are making a large project I highly recommend alternating skeins to get an even color throughout the project. 

DYED TO ORDER: These skeins are dyed especially for you. All sales are final on Dyed to Order.

Hand dyed with professional acid dyes. We wash all yarns in water several times to see that the water is running clear. Then they are washed in unscented Eucalan wool wash. Even with this process, you may still get minimal bleeding on the first few washes. 

Dyed and stored in a smoke-free, dog-friendly studio.

Care: For best results, hand wash in cold water with an unscented wool wash of your choice. Lay flat to dry.

Detergent: I recommend Eucalan unscented, or another wool-specific unscented wash.
