The purpose of this pre-order listing is to allow you to get a full sweater quantity of a single colorway+base. Lots are available in a minimum of 3 skeins (no maximum, order what you need for your size!)
Orders with this listing purchased in a quantity less than three will be cancelled. If a second color is needed for a multi-color sweater, less than three skeins added in is fine, as long as the order contains at least one colorway with 3+.
For your order of at least 5+ skeins from this listing, please use the following discount code. The discount will apply to only the SQ yarns from this listing. (Use the second code for 8+ skeins.)
FIVEORMORE for 10% off
EIGHTORMORE for 15% off
Please note, that while you'll receive yarn all dyed in as few batches as possible, it is still recommended to alternate skeins in larger projects, even with yarn dyed in the same pan, for best results.

All Shipwrecked Sheep yarns are dyed using professional acid dyes. I do my absolute best to rinse all yarns multiple times so that no excess dye remains in the yarn before drying. You may still notice a small amount of color bleeding the first couple of times you wash your project, despite all measures taken to prevent this.
Due to the way hand dyed yarn is made, no two skeins of the same colorway are exactly the same and different yarn bases take dye differently. If your project requires using more than one skein of the same colorway, I recommend alternating skeins.
I use a professional camera and natural or professional lighting to capture colors as accurately as possible, as well as editing software to make minor color adjustments to make sure the photo is as close as possible to the actual yarn, but due to the differences in every person's monitor, the yarn may appear slightly different.
All yarns are hand dyed in a smoke-free and pet-friendly home. Pets are not allowed near the yarn, dyeing or drying areas, or storage or packing areas. I do my absolute best to keep my inventory safe from random pet hairs, but I cannot entirely guarantee they will be.
