Bohoyarns Base Yarns

 Currently, I am working with three different fingering weight sock yarns.

To see all the beauteous colours, click HERE.

All my yarns are machine washable, however, I encourage you to hand wash and lay flat to dry to prolong the life of your project.

As with all hand-dyed yarns, I encourage you to alternate balls if you need more than two skeins for a project. Also, if you find the colours bleed, soak your FO in 50/50 water and vinegar (I don't use vinegar in my studio because of the smell - I like yarn to smell pretty!).
