**50% of the proceeds from this yarn will go to EARTHJUSTICE "Because the earth needs a good lawyer!". This organization's mission is to even the scales between the “big bucks” of large corporate interests and the often woefully underfunded voice of our struggling ecosystem.
All yarns are hand-dyed with the highest quality dyes. I rinse all yarns after dyeing, but whether indie or commercial dyed, some light bleeding may occur initially--especially with pinks, reds and turquoise. I therefore recommend washing SEPARATELY in COLD WATER the first few times. Don't worry, this bleeding will have no effect on the intensity of the colors.
Each hank is unique so, when using more then one, it's best to alternate hanks every few rows.
