Red Barn Yarns are, each and every one, individually hand painted. Each skein is unique, yet overall consistent. Each skein, used with others of the same colorway create a beautifully tonal solid knitted product. Each of the colors can be used with one or more Red Barn colorways, and capture the coordinating undertones. Slight variations are to be expected and planned for in hand painted yarns. For best results, alternate skeins as you create your project. Please plan to purchase or order enough yarn for your project at the outset.
