Please note: Noro's hand-dyed yarns have subtle variations in colors that are natural and vary from skein to skein. For best results, we advise buying enough yarns to complete your entire project. When using hand-dyed yarn in your project, work two rows from one skein and two rows from another skein to give an overall blended effect.
