This listing is for one set of "Fraternal Sock Twins". Each set includes two approximately 50g balls of yarn that are dyed side by side with their twin. The random speckle dye technique makes these a fraternal pair.
Great for socks, gloves or mittens! Pair with one of our 20g Wee skeins for longer socks with contrasting heels/toes/cuffs. Try holding both strands together for a squishy DK weight hat or cowl! The combination of crimpy Superwash Blue Faced Leicester, nylon and the tight ply of this yarn make it quite hard-wearing. Looks great in garter stitch, textured stitches and more!
My Llark line of speckle dyed yarns are made from my own sock blanks using professional acid dyes. These skeins are what I call "Speckle Gradients" and have more speckles on one end of the yarn and then transition to fewer speckles or into another color of speckles on the opposite end.

Each set consists of (2) approximately 50g balls of yarn, pre-wound into a convenient center-pull cake. Due to dying these in sock blank form the yarn is slightly "crimpy", we have not found this to have any effect on the final knitted fabric.
Photos may show the same colorway wound from different ends to display the spectrum of the skein.
The yarn you receive may be wound from either end. If you have a preference, please let us know in the Notes to Seller box during checkout.
We recommend gentle hand washing in cold water with your favorite wool wash and drying flat in order to maximize the life of your creations, although you may machine wash gentle on cold and air fluff to dry.
This product comes from a smoke-free household, but not a cat-free one.
The cats do not however, come into direct contact with any of the fiber.
This yarn is rinsed in water containing a touch of lavender oil.
