CARE: This is a superwash yarn and will NOT felt. It can be washed in the machine, however, I generally prefer to hand wash all of my hand knitted items and lay flat to dry.
Although thoroughly rinsed after dyeing, it is not unheard of for some excess dye to be released in the first wash. This will not affect the color of your yarn. I advise washing your finished objects separately the first time. If using strong contrasting colors to stripe (for instance), it may be prudent to give your dark colored skein a quick soak prior to starting your project, to avoid any bleeding.
