This order was made to complete a scarf I had started. The local store had only three skeins. I thought I would have enough and if I had to order more I could do it via internet. Always aware that the dye lot number would be different. The project evolved into a larger size by choice therefore more yarn was needed. I ordered then from you the same color and when received, I was quite disappointed at the color. It was a totally different shade...more of a beige tone. the gray tones were totally absent. Due to the nature and design of the garment I used a creative method to mend the situation. This scarf has a complex Aran design and I was forced to finish it in two colors. Different colors at each end. I expected a minor change in the color but not a total different hue. The vendor was as surprised as myself. She said: This is a different color all together.
