Vibrant colors can bleed onto undyed/light colors during
washing. This is the nature of vibrant colors and does not
indicate poor dyeing. To prevent this, pre-wash your
vibrantly colored skein before knitting. Open the skein
and add 4 additional ties of scrap yarn to prevent tangling.
Using a bucket or stainless sink/basin, gently wash with
dish soap or laundry detergent and cold water. Rinse and
repeat until the water runs clear. Then gently squeeze the
excess water out and lay flat or hang to dry.
