Because wool and silk accept dyes differently, the fabric made from this yarn may have a slightly "tweedy" look in some shades. Due to the difficulties inherent in dyeing wool-silk, some shades may be less resistant to fading in light and water then 100% wool. For this reason, we recommend that wool-silk garments not be exposed to natural or artificial light for prolonged periods and that they be dry-cleaned only. We cannot be held responsible for damages incurred as a result of any other cleaning or finishing method. Weavers, please take notice.
