Our sample featured here and on our instagram is on our Smooth Sock base which results in a light weight fabric versus our Single Lady which will create a warmer fabric.

ALOE -This rich colorway brings to mind the healing and restorative properties of the Aloe Vera plant. With vibrant, warm shades of green, splashes of blue and speckles of terra-cotta and earth an item knitted with this yarn will bring you healing and new growth this winter with every stitch made.
SUCCULENT - This colorway is gorgeous with shades of green and speckles of blue and terra-cotta on a creamy base. It makes us think of the lovely succulent pots sitting in the house and the yearly rebirth of spring.
ABOUT OUR YARN
Here at Kate + Lottie each unique color way is produced with professional dyes and detailed formulas. Every aspect of the dye process is carefully monitored to maintain color quality. However, due to the nature of this hand crafted item some variation between skeins is to be expected. We recommend alternating skeins as you knit for larger projects.
In regards to color, every effort is made to represent our yarn accurately within our Kate + Lottie product photos. Differences in device screens may display colors differently. Therefore, we recommend utilizing our color descriptions in addition to our detailed photos.
To extend the life of your heirloom garment or accessory we highly recommend washing your finished knitted items in cold water. While all Kate + Lottie yarns are carefully double rinsed following the dye process some bleeding may still occur.
All purchased items are shipped within 5-7 business days, excluding pre-orders which ship the last week of the month placed.
