I missed a shop update! How can I find out ahead of time when new stock is added?

Easy! Follow Redbird on Instagram or Facebook. Restock announcements, new colorways, and promotions are shared regularly, along with the date and time of the next shop update.

How should I wash my yarn or project?

Please wash gently in cold water and lay flat to dry. Hand washing is strongly recommended. 

If you feel the need to use a detergent, use the most gentle wool wash or detergent you can find!

I take great care to set the dye and rinse away any excess, but I recommend washing finished projects with like colors (or alone) for the first few washes to be on the safe side. Cold water is the best way to maintain your project's beautiful colors. Washing in warm or hot water could break the dye's bond to the fiber. Please contact me anytime if you have concerns or questions about caring for your yarn.

Where and how do you dye the yarn?

Skeins are hand-dyed in my smoke-free home studio in Columbus, Ohio with professional acid dyes.

What if I have allergies or sensitivities?

Undyed inventory is stored in a separate, closed-off room in my home, and dyed inventory is stored in airtight plastic containers. However, I do want to disclose that my home is cat-friendly. I do everything I can to minimize product exposure to cat fur and dander. If you have severe allergies, please be aware of the limitations of my home studio before placing an order.

What yarn base do you use?

Yarn is hand-dyed on a 4-ply, fingering-weight blend of 75% superwash merino wool and 25% nylon.
