Reserving Kits. We’ve hand picked some of the prettiest skeins from Sweatermaker Yarns studio. There are limited quantities of each color. When you add a kit to your cart, you are reserving it for one hour; during that hour, no one else can purchase it. After an hour, the kit automatically becomes available again.
Care instructions for Marjorie. Hand wash very gently in cool water. Blot between towels. Lay flat to dry on a towel. Luxury fibers like silk are soft, light and lustrous. Their delicacy is part of their magic, but does mean they need to be handled with care.
About hand painted yarns. Each skein of Marjorie is hand painted and unique. If working with more than one skein, alternate between skeins for a few rows to blend the colors. Note that the colors of your actual skein may not be identical to how they appear on your computer monitor.
