I love intense color and self striping yarn. This bright deep colored yarn will make a dazzling pair of socks or a great scarf for someone who loves color. It is made with next to the skin, soft super-washed merino wool and is dyed deep fluorescent fuschia, peacock blue, and fluorescent purple about 6 rows deep with a fine 1 or 2 row stripe of black in-between each one. This yarn is space dyed by me with professional acid dyes and steam set. The dye process creates anomalies in the coloring and in this particular set, the purple fractured to a mottled fuschia and purple. This can sometimes happen in a hand dyed yarn depending on the dye process used. It makes the yarns unique and beautiful and you can see it in both skeins dyed together.
The last picture is a swatch in this colorway knit with 64 stitches to show the striping that would show in a typical pair of socks. If your socks use more or less stitches, it will affect the stripe width but you should still get a great effect with a 72 stitch sock.
I currently have one skein dyed in a mill-spun, fingering weight which is composed of a 75/25 Superwash Merino/Nylon blend. Called Sock Addiction, it comes in a 460 yard, 100 g per skein. Knitting gauge will be 7-9 stitches per inch on 0-2 size needles. Care is hand or machine wash cool and you can dry on low but if you lay flat to dry they will tend to last longer.
I have re-skeined this yarn to make sure there are no tangles or knots to frustrate you. Choose how you want your yarn put up. The default is in a skein, but if you want, I can wind it into one ball or two equal balls by weight. Choose your preferred put-up from the drop-down. If you want more, or want a glitter yarn base, convo me and I'll dye it up for you.
