Gradient/self-striping fingering yarn: golden green, turquoise, aubergine

$ 35.00

This beauty is a gradient that begins with a gold with just a touch of green, transitons through pale chartreuse, celeste green, soft teal, turquoise, and cornflower, and ends with aubergine. It was originally dyed as a sock blank, and then unraveled, washed, and wound into a ball, ready for knitting or crocheting. Sock blanks are machine-knitted strips, which are then dyed to produce long gradual color changes. There may be pale or white speckling throughout the skein, where the knitted stitches overlapped and dye didn't completely penetrate.

This sock blank was knitted with 3.5 oz (100 g) of 75/25 superwash merino/nylon fingering yarn, measuring approximately 463 yards. The merino is soft and springy, while the nylon lends it durability. Recommended needle size: US 0-2 (2.0-2.75 mm). While items made from this yarn can be machine washed, hand washing in cold water is recommended, to extend the life of your handmade items. Lay flat to dry.
