Below are a list of frequently asked questions but if you have any further questions please email us at hello@solidandmarl.com

 

Q. Do I need to wash the completed lambswool kit/project I made at the end to fluff up and soften the fibres?

A. Yes, our lambswool is an oiled yarn and needs to be washed to remove the oils out and fluff up (bloom) the fibres. Rule of thumb is: Longer/Hotter wash = MORE felting. Cooler/Gentler wash = LESS felting. Add a tea towel or similar in the wash to increase the felting. Expect up to +/- 10% shrinkage depending on the level of felting you decided on. Extreme felting can have a higher level of shrinkage. 

 

Q.  Can I felt your yarn.

A.  Yes, you can create some really interesting effects with our yarn, you can felt it either by hand or in the washing machine.

Q.  If I need to wash a blanket/animal/scarf etc. to clean it can it be washed in the washing machine?

A.  No, its best to do subsequent washes by hand and let it dry naturally.

 

 

Q.  Can I request different colours to be included in the kits instead of the colours advertised.

A.  Yes, buy the kit as normal and on the "Special instructions for the seller:" section at the checkout say that you would prefer a different colour and let us know which colours.

 

 

 

Q.  Do you do courses where I can come along with friends and learn a new skill.

A.  Not yet, it is in the pipeline and will be available soon.

 

Q.  Do you have a physical shop where I can come and see everything in person.

A.  Not yet, but we are working on it, we are very excited to be able to open our physical shop very soon.

 

Q.  The yarn is lovely but can I have a sample.

A.  Yes, we sell colour cards, that have samples of the yarn on so you can feel it and see the lovely colours in real life.  The cards are available in the Yarn section of the website.
