Frequently Asked Questions About Red Door Fibers Hand-Dyed Yarn

Here are our most frequently asked questions as well as helpful tips for working with Red Door Fibers hand-dyed yarns. If you question isn't answered here, please send an email.


What is hand-dyed yarn?
Hand-dyed yarn, as the name suggests, is yarn that has been treated with dyes by hand – usually in small batches.

Is the color I see on my screen accurate to what I will receive?
Every effort is taken to produce photos with color accuracy. However, due to monitor differences, actual colors may vary from what is shown.

If I order multiple skeins, will they match?
While I try to maintain consistency with all my yarns, please remember that with hand-dyed yarns, color may vary slightly from one to the next and will never be identical.

What does “alternating skeins” mean and is it necessary?
Alternating skeins means working from two balls of yarn at once, knitting two rows from one ball and then two from the other, back and forth as if you were knitting stripes. This blends the two skeins together, so that the difference between the two isn’t so noticeable.

How do I wash my project made with Red Door Fibers yarn?
I recommend washing in cool water and laying flat to dry.
