What Is A Blind Warp


A blind warp is used when two or more colors are being knitted together. The color that is being used as the right-hand needle (RHN) will be called color A and the color that is on the left-hand needle (LHN) will be called color B. First, cast off all the stitches from both needles onto each other so that they are now on top of each other. Wrap yarn around both needles so that one strand is around color A and one strand is around color B. Pull tight to secure them in place. Now, lift up all 4 strands from the RHN side and attach it to your LHN side by passing it over/under its corresponding stitch.

What Yarn Dyeing Entails


Most sock yarns are only dyed in one color, so the dyeing process is fairly straightforward. The dye is mixed with water and added to the yarn. Then it is heated at the desired temperature for the desired amount of time and then left to cool. Yarn that has been dyed in more than one color requires more steps because each different color requires its own bath (or dyebath). For example, if you want socks that are green at the top and blue on the bottom, you would need two dyebaths -one for green and one for blue.

How Do I Know What Size To Order?


If you're new to sock subscription services, it can be hard to know what size and style to order. After all, there are so many styles out there! We recommend ordering one pair of the crew socks, one pair of dress socks, and two pairs of crazy colorful ankle socks. From there, if you like them and want more, you can choose from any other styles we offer!
If you're gifting this subscription to someone else, make sure they mention any sizing preferences in their note when purchasing. That way we'll include matching colors for the perfect gift!
