In December 1955, Rosa Parks, a civil rights leader, famously refused to surrender her seat to another white passenger on a segregated bus in Montgomery, Alabama. Parks’ refusal led to her arrest but also incited the Montgomery Bus Boycott, which sparked a nationwide effort to end the racial segregation of public facilities.
Rosa’s favorite color was pink. She could always be found dressed in pink and her favorite flower was pink roses.
Jems Luxe Fibers stands in solidarity with Black communities and the Black Lives Matter protests happening around the world, and with everyone who is fighting for justice and equality in this country. In support of this, we have dyed this colorway shades of pink to represent Rosa who became a nationally recognized symbol of dignity and strength in the struggle to end entrenched racial segregation. We will be donating a percent of net proceeds from this colorway to The Color of Change, which is the nation’s largest online racial justice organization. The Color of Change helps people respond effectively to injustice in the world around us. For more information, please click here.

Care of your hand knit garments
Please hand wash cold or lukewarm water and lay flat to dry. Even though this yarn does contain superwash merino, I do always recommend that you hand wash your knitwear. We use colorfast acid dyes for dying our yarn, and rinse until water runs clear. There may be a chance that some dye may bleed slightly in the first wash of your finished item. This does sometimes happen for speckled yarn and stubborn colors that are prone to bleed. For the first couple of washes, hand wash separately to be sure that no further bleeding.
There are no dye lots. We always try to sell from same dye lots but if not sure, we recommend blending the skeins as you work. Color saturation can differ from different dyelots.
