Frequently Asked Questions
What is a dye lot on yarn and why does it matter?
The dye lot is a number stamped on the label of skeins of yarn which indicates which skeins of yarn were dyed together.
If you are making a sweater or other large item, you should search for matching dye lots to ensure that the color is consistent across your project. If you were to use yarns from different dye lots, the color of your project would look off and potentially inconsistent.
