Gallus gallus Limited Edition Bases

Gallus gallus Limited Edition Bases


This is part two of three special colorways that I was inspired to dye after my children (4 and 1) decided to watch a certain movie about a Polynesian Princess over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over.........................
This listing is dyed to order.  It will be open for pre-orders until July 17th, when I will begin dyeing all the skeins.  Yarn will ship 3 weeks from the close of the pre-order.  If you purchase other, ready to ship skeins with this listing, all your yarn ship together when the Gallus gallus is ready to ship!

This listing is for the Limited Edition Bases.  As such, it does NOT come with a heel skein, and there will be no extras of these yarns.  Once they are gone, they are gone for ever!

Stripe Pattern:
6 rows Midnight Blue
6 rows Dark Teal
6 rows Dark Emerald Green
6 rows Honey
6 rows Russet
6 rows Honey

Stripe width will vary depending on tension and sock diameter.  Stripe patterns are determined using a 64 stitch diameter with fingering weight yarn and size 2.25mm needles.
Sample sock on the new "Displacement" base, with 2.25mm needles 60 sts.

Yarns are dyed with color fast acid dyes in a smoke free environment.

Make sure to select which of my yarns you'd like to purchase.  If this colorway is available in that base, "add to cart" will be shown, otherwise it will list "sold out."  Price per skein will vary depending on yarn choice.

Unless otherwise stated all skeins are dyed individually, so colors will vary slightly skein to skein even if multiple skeins are listed. 

Please be aware that although all of my yarns are superwash, I do not recommend machine washing.  To increase the longevity of your projects, you should hand wash your finished objects in cold water with a small amount of wool wash (I prefer Eucalan) and lay flat to dry.

Great care has been taken to assure color accuracies in our photographs, but please be aware that monitor colors may vary.
