How do I care for my Yeti Yarns?
Yeti Yarns are dyed on superwash wool bases, which means they can be machine washed with cool water and on gentle cycle. Be sure to use gentle soaps. For the very best results and longevity of your handknits, however, it is recommended that you handwash in cool water and lay flat to dry.
Dye may bleed for the first few washes, so please wash separately.
