    Ridiculously Beautiful : Pancake and Lulu Yarns : PLY
    The highest quality, carefully selected yarns are hand dyed with complex color recipes in individual small batch dye sessions. This meticulous care creates beautiful, subtle color glazing, only achievable by this hand coloring technique. The result is the lovely effect of dappling by light and color, creating a fascinating fabric with no harsh color pooling or stripes. In this unique, versatile line of yarns, you will delight in the pure joy of the knitting process and the stunning effects of your results. Enjoy!

    Please check the shipping time above for the lead time for me to create your hand dyed skeins. My recipes are carefully recorded and reproducible, however since each skein is hand-created individually, there may be variations from batch to batch - please order enough for your project for best match. Alternating skeins while knitting is a good practice to blend variations between skeins, should you wish to do so. Your happiness is my top priority - and I am very proud of my excellent feedback. Please contact me if you are dissatisfied with anything you purchase from Pancake and Lulu. :) Happy Crafting!

    A note about color and monitors:
    I try hard to make sure my photos capture the color of my items accurately. I also describe the colors in the description for a richer sense of the look of the item. That said, monitors do differ, sometimes brightness is turned up or down and this may account for a difference in the photo and the actual item.

    My yarn and fiber is hand dyed individually by me. I don't have "dye lots" in the traditional sense. I do create several skeins at a time which can be used seamlessly in a large project. You will receive matching skeins when you order multiple skeins of the same name in a single order. However, if you order skeins with the same color name at different times, on different days, the skeins may not match exactly. It is a good practice to work rows alternating from 2 balls to even out any color variations if that is the look you desire (this is a good technique to use with all hand dyed yarn). And, as with all yarn, it is best to make sure you purchase enough for your project in the beginning.

    Many of my handspun and handpainted yarns are created "to order". while I have created careful color recipes, each batch of yarn can vary a little from the original photograph. Please be aware that your yarn may not look *exactly* as in the photograph! These variations are an intrinsic part of all hand dyed and handmade items. Rest assured, you are free to return or exchange any item (see refund section above) if you are unhappy for any reason with your purchase. The item just needs to be in original condition. Just let me know asap and I will re-do the yarn, you can choose another or I can refund your payment after I receive the return.

    Gifts:
    Let me know if your order is a gift. I will leave out the invoice and include your personal message to the recipient. Gift wrapping, for a small fee, is also an option at checkout.

    Thank you and have a lovely day!!
