* COLOUR NOT WHAT YOU EXPECTED?
Every effort has been made to ensure that the colour on screen matches the yarn in real life. Differences may exist as screens have back-lighting and real life doesn’t. The yarns at Afrique Yarns are hand dyed, a reasonable difference between the photographs online and the actual yarn is to be expected. If you are unsure of the colourway on your device’s display before ordering, please view the website on a different computers/devices to be more sure of the colour which has been requested. Colours are correct on our calibrated PC screen, and should be close to true on iPhones and iPads.
