What a bummer! Our shipment is late.
Unfortunately, our beloved Socks that Rock® Mediumweight and Heavyweight sock yarns are temporarily backordered until the week of July 21, 2014. If your order contains either of these yarn bases between now and then, we will process (dye and ship) the part of your order we can and then, as soon as we receive our incoming shipment of Mediumweight and and Heavyweight, we'll process that part of your order. Since we dye our yarns to order, order processing generally takes about two weeks; as a result, orders containing Mediumweight and Heavyweight yarns will be shipped about three to four weeks from now. We will do our best to expedite these orders as soon as the yarn bases arrive at our doorstep.
We are sorry for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience!
From two to three to ten colors are used to create these colorways. No color rules or theory here--anything goes. I was never a big fan of coloring in the lines, so you will find that wherever two colors meet there is intermingling. This is where the true color magic happens. Some colorways have more frequent changes in them than others. This is visible in the skein photo. The bigger the band of color, the longer the repeat. There are some that stay in the same color family (as in Nodding Violet) and some that are all over the spectrum (as in Fire on the Mountain). A lot of these colorways were created for sock knitting, but they are certainly not limited to that.
