Care Instructions

Hand wash in cold water. Lay flat to dry. 

Each dye lot is unique. Please purchase enough yarn to complete your project. Alternating skeins is the best way to prevent possible pooling, flashing or a sudden shift of color. It's easy! Just work 1-2 row stripes from two balls of yarn (carrying the yarn up the side).

We try hard to capture the essence of each colorway, but please keep in mind that colors may vary from monitor to monitor.  

Meet the Maker

Magpie Fibers
Magpie Fibers was launched in 2014 in Frederick, Maryland after owner Dami Hunter moved to a new town and decided to take a knitting class. Between a lifelong love of craft and a fashion background, Dami knew that an interest in knitting would evolve into dyeing yarn. Dami and her team of Magpies hand-dye yarn in their Maryland studio, constantly producing beautiful, swoon-worthy color palettes. We are thrilled to represent them in our Portland shop.
