About this Colorway

Silly Old Bear Chromatic Gradient This amber colorway reminds us of our favorite portly bear who's a lover of honey and can frequently be heard saying, "Oh bother."

This gradient is part of our Chromatics Collection - a sweet array of single-color gradients moving from light to dark.

Notes about Knitcircus Yarns

Because of our unique dyeing process, many of our darker colors appear heathered, with small light spots sprinkled throughout. This heathering is normal. 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.

    About our Yarn Bases

    Greatest of Ease - fingering (80% superwash Merino/20% nylon) - 400 yards/100g. Great stitch definition, soft and springy. Our most popular base.

    • Medium socks - A medium socks set has 2 identical cakes that total 75g/300yd of fingering weight yarn. This makes a crew sock for women's size 6-9. If you want larger socks or just longer cuffs, order a "large socks set". We recommend working toe-up socks whenever possible in order to use every last inch of your gradient yarn.
    • Large socks - A large socks set has 2 identical cakes that total 100g/400yd of fingering weight yarn. This is the perfect size to make long crew socks for women's size 6-12. If you want smaller socks or shorter cuffs, order a "medium socks set". We recommend working toe-up socks whenever possible in order to use every last inch of your gradient yarn.
