Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. Skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball. 

Dye Lots: Where you see the same colour listed twice but with a different 'L#' suffix, this is indicating there are 2 dye lots in stock.  For example 'Linen-L11' and 'Linen-L12' are the same colour but from different dye lots. For colours with no 'L#' suffix, this indicates there are no dye lots due to the hand-dyed nature of the yarn.

Note: Due to the nature of hand dyed yarn, colourways can vary greatly from the image presented.
