The customer must assure himself or herself, by preliminary testing, that the dye fastness of the thread is suitable for his/her intended use. Our threads are manufactured and quality controlled to the very highest standards possible. However, since we have no control over washing, dry cleaning, and pressing, and since the value of the thread is so disproportional to the value of the material into which it is sewn, we are not responsible for any damage that could occur.
