GINGERBREAD HOUSE 1 skein of 6-self-striping sock yarn each stripe is approximately 4 rows depending on gauge on a 64 st. sock. 1 skein of sock yarn (in this case approx 85g stripes + 30g mini) is enough to knit a pair of socks in most sizes up to a men's US 10.5.
You will also receive a coordinating mini-skein for your toes/heels/cuffs in white
I highly recommend hand washing your knit items in cool water using a pH neutral wool wash to keep them looking amazing for as long as possible.
Please be advised washing in hot water is not recommended as it may break the bond between the fiber and the dye and could cause bleeding.
If you have them available it is always a good idea to use a "color catcher", similar to dryer sheets and often found in the laundry section. Some dyes are more prone to bleeding then others (e.g. reds, pinks), this happens to hand dyed wool just as commercially dyed wool.
IMPORTANT: As with all hand painted wool, some colour variation from the photo shown can be expected. Your yarn was dyed especially for you! Also because each skein is dyed to order, please expect approximately 2 weeks from the time of your order to the time it is shipped.
