Dye Lots

Rios is dyed in lots of 10 skeins per lot. Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball. Due to the hand-dyeing process the skein you receive may be somewhat different in shades and color distribution from the skein pictured.
