A note about the colors: For some unknown reason, my images of pinks/reds always seem a little bit off. To clarify, Cochineal w/Alum is a darker crimson, Cochineal w/Tin is a much lighter but similarly uniform crimson/pink. Mummy's Heart has lots of orange in it. Pink Swan is the only color that has lots of purples in addition to the pinks. I hope this helps you to choose the color that's what you are looking for.
Our yarn is wound into hanks. If you would like us to wind the yarn into balls for easier knitting or weaving, please let us know. We are happy to provide this service at no charge. Please note this may require cutting the yarn if the hank has too many yards to be wound into a single ball.
