Fibres are hand-dyed and subtle differences occur naturally between dye lots.
Please keep this in mind when calculating how much thread to purchase for a project.
It is better to have a little excess at the completion of your project
than to come up short with crucial sections remaining.
Dye lot differences are especially visible in large areas of stitches of the same colour.
Washing of threads and ribbons IS NOT recommended.
Quality dyes are used and textile industry standards are followed for setting the colours in the fibres,
but, if washed, colour fastness CANNOT be guaranteed.
