    About this Color

    This colorway is a gradient stripe, which means that the foreground color shift as you knit. How do we make these? Nobody knows.

    *Under the Mistletoe Gradient Stripes* If you're not out playing in the snow, you might be under the mistletoe, knitting and waiting for your Christmas sweetheart.

    About Gradient Striped Matching Socks Sets

    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.

    You choose to start from the center of the cakes 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.

    Sizes - We dye socks for any size! Whether you want to fit a toddler or the captain of the football team, Knitcircus Sock Sets are ready for the job. Choose the perfect size for your project, all wound into two cakes dyed together so your socks will match! We recommend working toe-up socks whenever possible so you never stop knitting before your gradient finishes with a flourish.

    Notes about this Yarn

    • 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 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.

    All dyed-to-order yarns take 6-8 weeks to deliver!
