Akara Yarns Merino Sock Sets are perfect for the sock enthusiast who is looking for nature-inspired colors that come with a complementing mini-skein, great for toes, heels, and or cuffs and accents! Hand-dyed in Ontario, Canada.
Hanks must be wound prior to knitting with them, but mini-skeins do much better hand-wound. The core of a ball winder is too big compared to the size of the ball so they tend to collapse and tangle. So, if you add yarn winding to your order for this item it will NOT, by default, include winding the mini-skein. If you'd like to risk it and have us wind the mini, too, please leave us a note at checkout. But... it will make us fret and worry and chew our fingernails.

This yarn is dyed by hand and will vary from skein to skein and batch to batch. Each one is an unique work of art full of subtle variation and beauty, so your skein will differ from the one pictured. To achieve the most even possible color distribution, consider alternating skeins while working your project.
Please buy enough for your entire project all at once. We will do our best to select skeins from the same dye lot or, if there is no dye lot, skeins that visually match. If you add multiple skeins of the same yarn to your cart you'll be prompted at checkout to select how to proceed if we have concerns about skeins matching.
While colors shown are accurate to the best of our ability, computer monitors and dye lots both vary so the skeins you receive may differ from what is shown.
