Circus Extreme Striped Socks Set (medium), Greatest of Ease, ready to ship
This yarn is ready to ship from our studio to your favorite knitting chair.
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, and no having to remember to change colors. This yarn is spectacular.
Medium dyed-to-match gradient striped socks sets make festive stripes throughout the sock. 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.
Medium socks - A medium socks set has 2 cakes that are approximately 150 yards each. This makes a crew sock for women's size 6-9. If you want larger socks or just longer cuffs, look for a "large socks set". We recommend working toe-up socks whenever possible so you never stop knitting before your gradient finishes with a flourish.
This colorway is an EXTREME stripe, which means that both the foreground AND background colors shift as you knit.
*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. If you want a different base or a size of socks, click here to custom order this colorway.

- 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.
