Sweet stripey goodness on US-sourced bases hand-dyed in Southeast Michigan! Julia Vesper’s self-striping colorways work up in cheerful five- to eight-color repeats that you might not want to hide under shoes. No one here is suggesting socks with articulated toes, but a hat isn’t out of the question. Hand or machine wash, gentle cycle, and lay flat to dry.
Remember that hand-dyed skeins are created individually, in small batches. If you are making a larger garment, please consider alternating skeins every two rows or rounds if you want an appearance of overall consistency in your finished object.
