A note on colour: as yarn colours vary in different lighting conditions and electronic screens vary too, there may be a slight variation in the product colour. As all of our yarn is hand-dyed, each batch is as unique as you are.

Care instructions: hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry. 

Returns: we want you to be thrilled with McIntosh. If not, we will refund or change your yarn within 60 days.  Simple.
