Great Adirondack Organic DK Cotton Light Yarn description:
A soft unmercerized DK organic cotton, hand-dyed in the USA. Rich variegated colors and ample yardage make this a great yarn for shawls and scarves. It's also lovely for a colorful summer shell or poncho.
The even 2-ply twist and great yardage makes it very suitable for weavers as well.
While cotton can generally be machine washed and dried we recommend doing so only with great care in order to prevent bleeding of the vibrant hand-painted hues. Use only cold water and low/no heat or hang dry.
Better yet - handwash cool and hang or lay flat to dry.
Whether hand or machine washing the dyer recommends using only a small amount of mild castille soap rather than detergent or a no-rinse delicate wash such as soak or eucalan.
We have some suggestions!
