The colors are my own watercolor gradients and although I do keep recipes the subsequent batches rarely match the originals and will be cousins rather than twins.
This fiber was a test run and I'm going to be honest, it was a bit of a failure. It's amazingly soft but the yak is not thoroughly blended. Having 40% of this fiber silk and 40% yak with only 20% wool makes for an incredibly soft fiber and will be amazing yarn but this won't be an easy spin. I should have done more of a wool base to anchor the yak and silk.
I will not be running this base again. I will be discounting the braids a bit to make up for the fact that the combed top is a bit raggedy. Some braids are better than others.

Matching older braids is off the table, I can come close with a cousin but twins rarely happen from dye lot to dye lot.
WASHING INSTRUCTIONS for Fiber and Yarn
Yarn and Fiber dyed by Corgi Hill Farm should be washed in cool to warm (not above 90 F or 32C) water with appropriate yarn and/or fiber cleansing products.
Do not use very Hot Water. Do not use detergents meant to remove stains (i.e dyes). Do not use heavily salted (i.e. soft) water for your rinsing. All of these measures may damage the fiber or yarn and may affect the color of the product.
Heavily scented wool washes have been known to be problematic with hand dyed fiber and make the colors run.
Care Instructions for Baubles and Jewelry
Cool water with a soft cloth is best for cleaning most items that are not fiber or yarn.
