*This colorway combines a semisolid gradient periwinkle with overdyed speckles. These speckles transition across the skein starting with dark brown on the darkest end of the gradient, moving to fuchsia speckles and finally sky blue speckles on the lightest end of the skein. The colors are reminiscent of hortensia flowers.*
This listing is for one set of Fraternal Sock Twins. Each set includes two approximately 50g balls of yarn that are speckle dyed side by side with their twin. I call these my "Speckle Gradients" as they have more speckles on one end of the yarn and then transition to fewer speckles or into another color of speckles on the opposite end. The random speckle dye technique make these a fraternal pair.
Great for socks, gloves or mittens! Pair with one or two of our 20g Wee skeins for contrasting heels/toes/cuffs. Try holding both strands together for a squishy DK weight hat or cowl! The combination of Superwash Blue Faced Leicester, nylon and the tight ply of this yarn make it quite hard-wearing. Looks great in garter stitch, textured stitches and more!
My Llark line of speckle dyed yarns are made from my own sock blanks using professional acid dyes.

Photos may show the same colorway wound from different ends to display the spectrum of the gradient.
The yarn you receive may be wound from either end. If you have a preference, please let me know in the comment box during checkout.
I recommend gentle hand washing in cold water with your favorite wool wash and drying flat in order to maximize the life of your creations, although you may machine wash gentle on cold and air fluff to dry.
This product comes from a smoke-free household, but not a cat-free one.
The cat however, does not come into direct contact with any of the fiber.
This yarn is rinsed in water containing a touch of lavender oil.
