IMPORTANT!! Another matter that is very important to me is that the copyright of the pattern in your post have been clearly read and understood before posting. Many designers clearly state their wishes for the representation of their patterns on Social Media. Please check your pattern to review the wishes of the designer first before posting!! If these wishes are not respected for any reason, where the posting of your work on Instagram or Facebook causes an eventual legal issue with the designer, Little Bishes Stitches will not take any legal responsibility.
Yarn Dying Process
Q: What do you use to dye yarn?
A: I use acid dye powders and citric acid. After the yarn has been dyed, I soak it in a wool wash. The yarn is then spun dry and hung. If there is a sunny day here in Germany, I hang the wool outside in the sun :). The yarn is then stored in a climate neutral room away from our dog Blue.
Q: What bases do you offer?
A: We have an amazing diverse selection of yarn bases in different yarn weights. For more information, please visit our base page.
