NOTES REGARDING COLOR
If the wool is dyed, I use dyes boasting extremely high wash fastness and good to excellent light fastness.
Please bear in mind the photo May Be Slightly Different from the actual item in terms of Color due to the lighting during the photo shooting or the monitor's display.
*Babydoll Southdown sheep are born either black or off-white. Even though they are born black and referred to as black sheep, the fleece of many will fade to dark chocolate or lighter shades of brown and even an oatmeal color. As they age, some of the black sheeps’ fleece will fade to different shades of gray, some much faster than other. I ususally only have one or two black fleeces available each year.

NOTES REGARDING PROCESSING
Unless otherwise noted, once the sheep were sheared by a professional, all aspects of the processing of the fleece, from raw to finished product was completed by me at the Bergamascos' Babydoll Brigade farm in a smoke free environment. I used a mill to process my scoured/dyed wool into roving.

NOTES REGARDING WASHING

Babydoll wool is a natural version of "superwash" if you will. I have washed hand knitted socks, hats, and sweaters in my front loading washing machine. After washing, I block them to the desired shape and then air dry. I recommend hand washing, blocking, and air drying for "fancy" items or items with fringe.
