In the dye pot the dye strike for the fiber combination of superwash merino wool, yak, and silk remain unique to each of the individual fiber qualities and produces spectacular colors. 


Even though the merino in our Lotus Yarn is superwash treated, we recommend that you hand wash/lay flat to dry. In the picture below, I knit the swatch and blocked it to the size of the white outline. As an experiment, I washed it in the washing machine hot wash/warm rinse regular cycle. You can see the shrinkage in the photo. The swatch did not felt, just shrunk. You may want to try your own swatch in a gentle cycle with cold wash/cold rinse.


Our washing experiment goes to show that just because the merino is superwash, does not mean it is a superwash product!
