Refraction | Basic Sock

$32.00 (CAD)

Refraction is one of my original colourways! An awesome high contrast, hand-dyed sock yarn that comes in a variety of colourway and offers infinite possibilities!

It starts with a resist technique and a deep black base…but can be made with any base colour really (See my Mad Man with a Box sock yarn …a refraction technique with a bright blue base)
Once dyed, I uncover the resisted areas and hand-dye them….adding  awesome splashes of colour!
Each splash is about an inch wide, created lovely *pops* of colour, one stitch here, one stitch there!

Refraction can be made with pretty much any colour scheme so feel free to contact me if there are specific colours you would like to see. See below for a list of colours I have made!

If you would like three or more skeins, a new batch will be dyed for you to ensure they match as closely as possible.

Be aware that colors may appear differently on different computer monitors, but every effort has been made to portray them as accurately as possible.
All of my yarns are hand dyed and, as much as I attempt to match, every batch is one-of-a-kind.  Be sure to order what you need as matching future batches are not guaranteed.
When using hand-dyed yarns in a project that requires more than one skein, it is strongly recommended to alternate skeins every other row of knitting to even out any differences.
Lastly, as with any hand dyed yarn, please expect minor imperfections and some variation from skein to skein (even within the same batch), as each skein is individually hand painted.
