Washing Instructions for all Sock Yarns: Hand washing in cool water is recommended to prolong the life of any hand-knit or hand-crocheted item. This yarn may also be gently machine washed in cool water. Roll in a towel to remove excess water (do not twist or wring), and lay flat to dry away from direct sunlight.
