Circus Extreme Striped Socks Set, dyed to order

$ 49.00

Gradient-Striped Sock Yarn was invented by Knitcircus Dyer Jaala Spiro. This unique dyeing technique creates short stripes for instant gratification and an overall gradient effect. The main color of the sock changes slowly as you knit - from almost completely one color to almost completely another. The gradients and the stripes happen magically as you knit! No knots in your socks.

This colorway is an EXTREME stripe, which means that both the foreground AND background colors shift as you knit. How do we make these? Nobody knows.

Each "matching socks set" includes two cakes dyed to match exactly - down to the stitch! You can choose to start from the center of the cake or from the outside, and whether to knit toe-up or top-down! So many choices. Our sock sets are available in 3 different sizes, so that you can use up all of the fun stripes and colors without sacrificing fit! 

*Circus Extreme Gradient Stripes* evoke the magic of circus days of old! This colorway tweaks our Gradient Stripes technique to create a fun rainbow alternating with saturated brown stripes. The rainbow portion changes from red to orange to yellow to green to turquoise. The Extreme collection is a very time-consuming process, so they cost just a little more.
