Please note that colors will vary between computer-phone-tablet monitors and dye baths, and though we try our best to post color-accurate photos, variations should be anticipated. For any questions or concerns about color exactness, please contact us!

Natural dyes fade beautifully with time and may run a bit when washed but will retain their vibrancy with proper care. Anything made with Pichinku yarn is not suited for the spin cycle!

We recommend gently washing in cold water with a very small amount of pH neutral detergent, avoiding agitation, and laying flat to dry.
