Popular Questions About Imperial Yarn Products

We are fortunate to have strong relationships with several U. S. mills, each with different capabilities allowing us to offer a wide variety of products. These value chain partners are key to our efforts to supply an American product start to finish.

We recommend hand washing all projects made with Imperial Yarn in lukewarm water.  Rinse well and then squeeze out excess water.  Place on a padded surface (a clean dry towel works well,) block to desired measurements and leave to dry.  Please be aware that all of our yarns are untreated wool and will felt if they are exposed to hot water and agitation.  We do not recommend washing in a machine, but use caution if you do.

Yes.  All of our yarns are untreated wool and all of them will felt.  Please be aware that dye colors can influence felting rates.  We suggest always knitting and felting a swatch before beginning a project.

Begin by placing the cake beside you while knitting.  Instead of tugging on the roving to unwind the cake, unwrap the roving giving yourself a length to knit with.  Working on a smooth surface (finished wood or leather furniture) can help prevent snags. Breaks in the Bulky 2 Strand can be spit-spliced together (Knitty.com has a good set of instructions here.)  Finally, very tight knitters may always be frustrated by the tenderness of Bulky 2 Strand pencil roving, so to them we suggest trying our Native Twist yarn.  This yarn knits at a similar gauge and can be substituted for Bulky 2 Strand with great success.
