Yarn Info

customorders.jpgTHE GNOMEMADE PROCESS
All of our dyed yarn products are produced in a workshop that we custom built for the sole purpose of dyeing yarn. We use professional grade acid dyes, and high quality yarn bases, all of which went through rigorous testing before it was decided that they would be worthy of an addition to the line-up listed below. (In other words, we give every base to Baby Gnome and wait for her powers of destruction, of which she has harvested from the ash plains of Mordor, to test the durability of each new yarn base.) Every hand dyed item is exactly that, "dyed by hand". This means that no two items are going to be exactly alike, which makes all of our products, and your projects, very unique creations.

Because they just don't make sheep that look like the photo on the right, we go to great lengths to ensure that our dyes are fully applied to the yarn exactly the way the dye manufacturers suggest. All of our finished yarn goods are kept in plastic containers with small (lightly scented) lavender sachets to keep the rackin' frackin' varmints away until they are shipped.

RECOMMENDED CARE
To get the most out of your handmade item, we always suggest hand washing it in COOL water, and lay flat to dry. Occasionally, small particles of dye embedded in the yarn can come loose after additional handling, rinsing or drying. This is a natural process that occurs in dyeing. The difference in the pH value/minerals in the water at my studio, versus your house, can also have an effect on this. For yarn that contains a great deal of white, red, pinkblack, blue, and other darker colors, we also recommend using some type of color catcher sheet, and/or white vinegar, as an extra precaution. White vinegar is a natural fabric softener, which means you can be liberal when using it, as it will only make your yarn softer.
