*This colorway features a dip dyed semisolid gradient base color overdyed with a speckle gradient. I call these my "Speckle Gradients" as they 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. The random speckle dye technique make these a fraternal pair.*
This listing is for one set of Shorty Sock Twins. Each set includes two approximately 30g balls of yarn that are hand dyed side by side with their twin.This yarn base featuring Superwash Targhee wool is proudly made in the US.
Our new Shorty Sock Twin line is perfect for those who never use a full skein of yarn for a pair of socks! These sock twins have 40% less yardage than our classic sock twins and are great for those who have smaller feet or like shorter socks but still want to enjoy the full gradient in their finished object. Pair with one or two of our 20g Wee skeins for longer socks with contrasting heels/toes/cuffs. Also great for gloves or fingerless mitts.
The combination of Superwash Targhee/Nylon and firm ply of this yarn make it perfect for durable items like socks! This yarn is not Merino soft but even our most sensitive Seamstress Sheep on the Llady Llama team (my Sister, Kari) could not detect any prickle factor.
My Llively line of yarn is made from my own sock blanks and carefully hand dyed with professional acid dyes.

Each set consists of (2) approximately 30g balls of yarn, pre-wound into a convenient center-pull cake. The total yardage of the two balls of yarn is approximately 240 yards. Photos may show the same colorway wound from different ends to display the spectrum of the gradient. 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.

The cat however, does not come into direct contact with any of the fiber.
