As I was doing some hand washing the other day I gently washed the first sock - big mistake. I know they'd need washing after being worn but the colour has faded a bit
(l to r) washed & unwashed Koigu Kersti Merino
I'm not sure how evident it is from this photo particularly as monitors differ but believe me there is a difference. Focus on the black & bright blue & it's there - the brilliant hue has gone
I will wash the second sock in the same hand washing liquid & after that treat them with kid gloves.
