Because of the handmade nature of our yarns, artisanal variations can occur with each color palette as all of our yarns are custom blended for per batch.
Our woolen-spun yarns are true dyed-in-the-wool yarns and color variation across dye lots can occur as a result of each base fleece being dyed and blended for each different dye lot at Harrisville. Color variation across lots can also occur with our worsted-spun yarns which are dyed-in-the-skein with unique, custom dye baths mixed at Maine Textiles.
To avoid any potential striping, you may wish to alternate skeins when mixing dye lots of the same color. You are also welcome to alternate skeins with yarn of the same dye lot, though this isn’t something that we have found to be necessary.
