Pls. be aware that the plant colored yarn can have access colors and can thus color your hands when you knit. This is due to the fact that no chemicals have been used to prevent access colors which is normally the case with yarn produced in a factory. Our experience is that access colors will be present when you wash the yarn for the first 2-3 times.
When you buy natural yarn from Frisenvang you are contributing to improving living conditions for families in the Andes Mountains who now are living below the poverty line. See more in section ”the good cause”.
