This yarn was handspun on my Ashford Kiwi and washed several times in hot water with all natural soap and air dried to set. You can dye this yarn any color you like or keep it natural. The natural color is a rich gray-cream -- a blend of white and black BFL fiber mixed with white silk. All three colors melt together to make this natural, luxurious yarn.
This yarn is spun and stored in a smoke- and pet-free environment.
Hand wash cold and lay flat to dry.
