Yarn Hero's ColorMix line is a unique dyed in the wool yarn that works up into long gradients and/or stripes of colour.
Just as the name implies, ColorMix yarns use optical blending within the strand to create unlimited color blends. Unlike most indie-hand-painted yarn, the colour changes will work up into long bands of colour, instead of short repeats.
Colours will shift, marl, barber pole and shift back again. No pooling guaranteed!
Each skein is a one-of-a-kind, even when from the same dye lot. No need to alternate skeins when working with multiple skeins on a large project!
ColorMix Sock is a high twist 3 ply, fingering weight yarn spun from superwash Merino wool with added nylon for durability.
The combination of the tight twist, nylon and the extra ply create a more sturdy yarn especially designed for hard wearing items like socks and gloves, while keeping its wonderful next-to-the-skin softness.
Not just for socks, but one skein is enough for a calf-length pair of adult large socks.
A note about the milling process:
All ColorMix yarns are milled in a small, family-run US mini mill. This means that the yarns are created by hand in small batches on simple cottage industry equipment. Due to this, there will be small variances in the thickness of the yarn throughout the skein.
