Labels: The manufacturer does not supply labels for this yarn. We apologise for the inconvenience. Due to the lack of labels, each batch/dyelot is stored separately in our shop, and all balls per colour are shipped only in the same dyelot. Should you have any concerns or more detailed information be required, please contact the manufacturer - Orkney Angora. Thank you for your interest in our products. - Irene & Mr.Sheep Co.

Garment Care
Wash a garment with eucalyptus wash or any other woolwash "no rinse", and dry flat pulling the garment into the correct shape, away from direct heat and sunshine. Do not wring out the garment - roll it in a towel and gently press to remove excess water. The yarn dries quickly as all natural angora yarns. Do not iron, never hang on a hanger, it will stretch the shape
Note: There may be slight flaws in the colour at the first wash, this is natural for commercial dyes on natural fibers.
