A riot of primary colors flecked with charcoal gray!

In Reykjavík, buildings come in every shade you can imagine, which is quite startling and lovely. There are a lot of explanations out there for why Reykjavik is so bright — ranging from anarchist building norms, to imported cultural traditions, to counteracting the often bleak weather — but whatever the real reason, I think it’s very cheerful to look at :)

Our yarns are hand-dyed with professional fiber reactive dyes on soft, eco-friendly vegan fibers. We do our best to represent yarn colors accurately in the listing photos, but please keep in mind that hand-dyed yarn inherently varies a bit from skein to skein, and different monitors may display colors differently.

Yarn is made in a smoke-free, pet-free environment. A scented soap is used at the beginning of the dye process on all bases except Anacostia and Severn, but is rinsed repeatedly after this; yarns otherwise do not contain fragrances.

To reduce our impact on the planet, our packaging is made of 100% plastic-free natural materials. Please reuse, recycle, or compost every piece!

Care Instructions

To keep finished objects looking their best, hand-wash in cool water and lay flat to dry.

Each skein is hand-washed thoroughly after dyeing, but please keep in mind that minimal bleeding or crocking can still occur on first wash. A prewash is recommended for projects using multiple colors, especially saturated colors.

As with all hand-dyed yarns, especially plant fibers, slight variations should be expected between batches and even within dye lots. We strongly advise purchasing all skeins for a project at the same time to ensure they come from the same dye lot. It is also best practice to alternate skeins as you work.
