 Funfetti Sock Yarn dyed in Black is Such a Happy Color

Bases will accept the dyes differently, so depending on the base it may be darker or lighter than pictured. The 4-Ply often comes out a little bit lighter than the 2-Ply, and the Slub yarn typically comes out darker than the other bases. Bronze Glitter has less visible sparkle than the Gold Glitter, and colors typically come out lighter than the Gold Glitter. Colors dyed on Funfetti come out more subdued. 

Care Instructions: Hand wash in cool water with a gentle soap (I recommend Soak Wash or a similar wool wash), reshape and lay flat to dry.
