Mithrandir Chromatic Gradient Matching Socks (Large), Greatest of Ease, ready to ship
This yarn is ready to ship from our studio to your favorite knitting chair.
Large dyed-to-match gradient socks sets make perfect slow-striping socks. You choose to start from the center of the cake or the outside! If you start with the same color for each sock, you'll have maternal twins - every stitch of one sock matches the other exactly.
Large socks - A large socks set has 2 cakes that are approximately 200 yards each. This makes an long crew sock for women's size 6-12. If you want smaller socks or just shorter cuffs, look for a "medium socks set". We recommend working toe-up socks whenever possible so you never stop knitting before your gradient finishes with a flourish.
*Mithrandir Chromatic Gradient* is named for the elves' name for Gandalf the Grey, wizard whose work upon Middle Earth was completed by destroying Sauron. Maybe you don't need to wander the hills, fall into shadow while battling a fire demon or lead a battle charge upon your horse Shadowfax, but you may still want to consider this piece of advice from Gandalf: "All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” (So spend your time knitting!)

- Because of our unique dyeing process, many of our darker colors appear heathered, with small light spots sprinkled throughout. This heathering is normal.
- Care for all of our yarns is to hand or machine wash cold (delicate cycle), dry flat. Our yarns are colored using professional-grade acid dyes.
- We’ve made every effort to photograph the color accurately, but appearance may vary depending on your monitor settings.
