In order to make sure Andrea Gaughan, the designer, receives all proceeds for her work, you can purchase the Iris Tank pattern now on Ravelry! It will not be included in the kit.


Important Note: all yarn is dyed in fairly small batches - meaning that each skein, while using the same dye recipe, will be slightly unique due to the nature of my dyeing process. additionally, while I do my best to make sure the photo matches the actual skeins, color may vary slightly from screen to screen (phone, computer. etc.) 

Shipping: this yarn is dyed to order as a part of the Iris Tank kit release preorder, with a turnaround time of 3 weeks, shipping by July 12th.

All preorder sales are final.
