About Gradient Matching Socks Sets

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.

About this Size

Large socks - A large socks set has 2 identical cakes that total 100g 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, 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.

About this Color

This is one of our Panoramic Gradients. These colorways are carefully designed to evoke memories of landscapes or films or poems. There are usually two or three colors in a Panoramic Gradient, as opposed to a Chromatic Gradient, which has many shades of one color.

*Mount Doom Panoramic Gradient* the largest volcano in Mordor is where the One Ring was forged and the only place it can be destroyed. Frodo and his companions aim to journey there to rid the world of the evils of the Ring and J.R.R.

Notes

  • This listing is for sock yarn only. You will not receive a completed pair of socks.
  • 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 this yarn 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.
