Ultra Violet Self Striping Yarn 50g + 20g
Ultra Violet is a self striping sock yarn with 28 stripes! The pair of identical hand knit socks pictured represents one main colour 50g skein (56 stripes in total) knitted from end to end with a 20g mini Skein to knit the heels and rib (I didn’t use it on the toes).
I personally knitted the socks toe up, so I started at the yellow end of the main skein and knitted in the round until the last green stripe (or until you reach the beginning of the first colour you started your toe on) there is one purple stripe then left on the main skein which I began to k2 P2 (created 4 rows of rib for me on 60sts/2mm needle). I added an afterthought heel and then when I started my second sock the yarn started at the yellow stripe once again. After both heels were in I built up the rest of my rib using the 20g purple mini before casting off.
This yarn will be sent as 2 skeins (50g & 20g skein) ready for you to wind, I recommend the use of a skein winder: unwinding your skein without the proper amount of tension can result in tangles. Please message me if you require further information regarding winding your yarn.
This set is available on a SW Merino/25% nylon Base or SW Merino Sparkle base. You will receive the main 50g self striping skein plus the co-ordinating 20g mini Skein.
We ethically source our yarns; our Merino yarns do not come from farms practicing mulesing. Our Merino is mulesing free.
I use a professional wool dye system to prevent colours from running or fading. Please use a wool specific soap and shape to dry.
Due to monitor differences actual colours may vary slightly from how they appear online.
