Edgar Allen Poe is our version of black, or about as close as we want to get to it. It's a deep grey with an almost purple-y undertone, and we designed it specifically to pair with our Pastel Neon Collection, but it would be a fantastic neutral paired with any color or a beautiful tonal all on its own.

- We make every effort to accurately represent the colors of our yarns, but differences in screen settings may make them appear slightly different in person. Photos were edited on an Apple computer with the screen brightness turned all the way up, so set your screen similarly for the best view.
- Consistency across our skeins and batches is a point of pride for us, but due to the hand-dyed nature of these yarns there is inevitably some variation form skein to skein and batch to batch, but we take great care to minimize the effect. As with all hand-dyed yarn, we recommend striping in each new skein in your project for a few rows for a smooth transition.
- Dyes behave slightly differently on each base, and some fibers take the dye differently as well (case in point, our alpaca laceweight), so please keep this in mind when ordering and check out all the photos. Our yarns are designed to be variegated, with different levels of color throughout the skein, for maximum visual interest and crafting fun!
- All yarns labled "Superwash" are machine washable on the gentle cycle with cool water, and lay flat to dry (though admittedly we put our socks in the dryer). But it is always recommended that you hand wash your finished pieces to extend their life and beauty. There may be some slight color wash-out for your yarns first wash, this is normal with any saturated colors. If you have combined colors that may bleed into eachother, be sure to use a cold soak and a Shout Color Catcher sheet if needed, they work great!
