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 luke-warm water with a very small amount of mild detergent (Orvus, Euculan, baby shampoo, etc.), avoiding agitation, and laying flat to dry.
