Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each skein may vary one from the other. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball. With Malabrigo dyes, the same formula is used each time but every batch of yarn is assigned a different dye lot number. The differences from one dye lot to another can be very subtle, or extremely noticeable, specially on variegated yarns. For Ball Winding services, click here.
