The name really fits – this yarn is crazy-cool, folks! It’s injection dyed by hand in a double ply yarn in order to yield identical pairs of socks! It’s made to knit two socks at once, and there are diagrams and everything so you can stage the yarn just so in order to do this. It’s weird and wacky, and we are super duper intrigued. We hope you are, too!
