Please be aware. While I do strive to accurately represent the colors in all my products, all monitors vary and what I see on my screen, may not be what you see on yours.
I dye my fibers in small batches and no two 4 oz braids will be 100% the same- that's what makes working with hand dyed wool so fun!
Because of the nature of hand dyed fibers, each batch of 'Espresso' is unique & variations may occur.
