How can we help you?

Does Craftsy guarantee matching dye lots?


Yes! For Cloudborn and Sprightly yarns within the same order! Keep in mind, we are not able to guarantee dye lots across multiple orders or help place an order with a specific lot. We recommend purchasing all your supplies for your project at the same time to ensure you receive the same dye lot.

We’ll do our best to match dye lots across other brands, but cannot guarantee this.


A note about all handpainted yarns (such as Artyarns, Cloudborn by Lorna’s Laces, Madelinetosh, Malabrigo, Manos del Uruguay, Mrs. Crosby Loves to Play): Part of the fun of hand dyed yarns is the variation. The nature of human touch in the dying process means one pot could yield different color tones, even though the yarn is dyed at the same time. Many of these yarns do not have dye lots on the labels. We do our best to pack the most similar skeins per order.


Tip: There are tricks such as alternating skeins in your project, that will help to bring hand painted colors together in the same project.  Checkout this blog post for more tips! For a more in depth look at working with hand dyed yarns try Mastering Multicolored Yarns with Jill Draper.
