Nature is important to BC Garn, therefore JAIPUR FINO is dyed with AZO free certified dyes, this means that the dye process is gentle to the environment. Because is necessary to use a lot of dye stuff to dye silk, there may be excess dye in some of the colours. We recommend to rinse the yarn in cold water before use; finish with a rinse of water added a little vinegar. Always wash in cold water.
