*Please note this yarn is not suitable for felting projects*
Unlike conventional superwashing processes where scales are burned off of the wool fiber with acid, O-Wash uses a GOTS certified organic compound to create washability. This compound holds the wool fibers in place during washing and drying, preventing them from interlocking during agitation which is what causes shrinkage and felting.
This yarn is dyed "tonally". Think of this more like a hand-dyed yarn - alternate skeins while knitting.
