ColorMix Sock is a 3-ply, heavy fingering weight yarn spun from superwash Merino wool with nylon for durability. This yarn is perfect for hard-wearing items like socks, mitts, hats, and baby items, and can be machine washed and dried. Along with its durability, ColorMix Sock also uses a different dyeing technique resulting in shorter color changes, allowing more bands of color in small projects (or where you are knitting semi-matching sets like socks or mitts).

About ColorMix Yarn:
Yarn Hero’s ColorMix line is a unique dyed-in-the-wool yarn that works up into long gradients and/or stripes of color. Just as the name implies, ColorMix utilizes optical blending within the strand to create a wide range of color blends. Unlike hand-painted yarn, the colors will shift, marl, stripe, and shift back again. Each skein is a one-of-a-kind, even when from the same dye lot. It is suggested you make sure to purchase enough skeins for your project from the same dye batch, as colors can, and will vary from batch to batch.
Due to the nature of how this yarn is dyed (kettle dyed first, then spun into yarn), color placement and intensity will vary between skeins, and within the skein itself. The yarn you receive may look slightly different than those in the photo. This is something that cannot be controlled, and is the beauty of this type of yarn. Let yourself go and allow the yarn to do it’s magic! When ordering multiple skeins, I will try to select skeins that are the closest match to one another. If you have a preference — darkest, lightest, one showing the most of a certain color, please write it in the notes and I will do my best.

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, as well as the occasional join or slub throughout the skein.
