Single Stranded Sock blanks are knit directly from the blank so there's no need for caking your yarn. Dyers love blanks because we can create beautiful gradients without having to use a warp board and they also allow for a great deal of creativity when applying the dye. Knitters love them because there's no need for caking your yarn and the dye process creates a really interesting effect when knit up. Knitters with cats especially love 'em because kitty can't play soccer with a yarn blank like she can a ball of yarn!
All yarns are hand-dyed with the highest quality dyes. I rinse all yarns after dyeing, but whether indie or commercial dyed, some light bleeding may occur initially--especially with pinks, reds and turquoise. I therefore recommend washing SEPARATELY in COLD WATER the first few times. Don't worry, this bleeding will have no effect on the intensity of the colors.
