Salt Water Taffy Extreme Striped Socks Set, dyed to order
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!
*Salt Water Taffy Extreme Stripes* are a sweet treat for your needles and your feet. Like eating taffy on the boardwalk in summer, you'll always want more.
