Are Premier® Chameleon Yarns Safe?

**Test Method: EN 16711-2:2015 that determines metal content and metals extracted by acidic artificial perspiration solution.
Does the yarn go back to white when not exposed to the sun or UV light?
Yes. The yarn will gradually turn back to white when not exposed to the sun or UV light.
I Noticed that the Yarn Has an Odor
Premier® Chameleon yarns are washed in scented soap during the manufacturing process to counteract the UV dye that is used. As a result, you may notice an odor when you open your package. We recommend letting the yarn air out until the odor dissipates. We have adjusted our washing process to correct the issue. If the odor is bothersome, please contact our Customer Service Department.
