Minou is opulence in a string! An exceptionally soft, luxurious yarn, Minou is ideal for fingering weight projects such as special garments and accessories. Its sprightly 3-ply twist gives it good stitch definition for cable or lacework projects, though it is equally beautiful in simpler designs.
Hand-dyed with professional wash-fast acid dyes in my cat-friendly home studio. I take great care to set dye colours and then rinse the yarns until no dye bleeds, however there may be some colour in your water at first wash due to differences in water properties. Please be aware that photo colours vary slightly from screen to screen.
If your yarn creation requires more than one skein of the same yarn, it is very important to alternate skeins every row to blend; the beauty of hand-dyed yarn is that no two skeins are exactly the same, even when dyed in the same batch.
Hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry.
