This pair of skeins is perfect for making socks. They have been dyed with a gradient dip in the indigo vat on a strong, durable millspun wool/polyamide blend sock yarn. As they are gradient-dyed they will create a subtle self-stripe as you work them up. As they are hand-dyed there are differences in the skeins. For best matched socks work 2 rows from one skein then2 rows from the other alternating like this as you go.

BOTANICAL DYED YARN CARE

Our botanical dyed yarns will sometimes stay more or less the same but others change with light exposure, some with heat and others within acid and alkaline environments. We think this makes our yarns very special and full of life and character.
However, to prolong the colours of your yarn please wash with pH neutral soaps (we love no-rinse wool wash) in cool to warm water by hand. Hang in the shade to dry. Knitted pieces also hold shape better when dried flat. Wash separately as the colour may run a little despite our best efforts and care to remove all residual dye, it's also just the natural nature of some plant dyes to run a little the first wash.
