About this Color
This gradient is one of our Panoramic Gradients - gorgeous, hand-dyed, gradient yarn in saturated colors with several color transitions throughout the cake. These gradients work up into beautiful and satisfying projects.
*The Lonely Mountain Panoramic Gradient* is named for a subterranean Dwarven city in The Lord of the Rings. The snow-topped, craggy mountain is rich with minerals and tales of dragons and all the creatures of Middle-Earth. Cream, gray and brown make this the perfect neutral gradient worth all the gold in Smaug's cache.
You can mix this colorway with a lovely semi-solid kettle-dyed yarn in the same base, or pair it with a single-color Chromatic gradient. The possibilities are endless!
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.
