Hand dyed Non-superwash yarns haven't been processed to remove the tiny scales found on fibre. This creates a stickier, more woolly yarn. Perfect for colourwork projects, and great for steeking. Non superwash yarn is much easier as the stickiness of the yarn means that your stitches are less likely to unravel.
Caring for knits made from non-superwash yarn takes a little more time and effort. Your knitting will need to be gently soaked or hand washed, the water carefully removed by squeezing it in a towel and then laid flat to dry, this is to prevent felting the yarn and fibres together.
