I named this one "Geiger" for the Geiger counter, which is used to measure ionizing radiation. Since most of the original fiesta ware used uranium in its glazes, especially the red, which was up to 14% uranium!
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.
Yarns are dyed with color fast acid dyes in a smoke free environment.

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.
