It is advisable to always order enough yarn to ensure you knit your entire project with yarn of the same dye batch. In case of doubt, please make a gauge sample immediately after receiving the yarn. This way, you may estimate whether you have ordered sufficient quantity and, if necessary, reorder directly.
