A new addition to our Pi(e) colorway line up is Pizza Pi(e)! Being offered in the shop for the first time, it was previously a club-only colorway.

What's not to love about pizza or pi? Or pizza pie? Our geeky pizza colorway was inspired by survey results from Foodler (a food delivery service) on the most popular pizza toppings across the US and Canada. Our flavorful stripes are:

Pepperoni/Sausage - A red/brown variegated stripe
Mushrooms - Taupe
Onions - White
Green Peppers - Green
Black Olives - Black

As with all of our Pi(e) colorways, the size of the stripes correspond with the order of the digits in pi (3.14159265358979323846....). Where a zero appears in the string of digits, the color of that stripe is skipped, so even the color repetition will be interrupted at times.

In order to assure you can begin your project with the first digit, the initial "3," you will find a stitch marker affixed to the strand that begins the striping pattern. Warning! If you like your socks to match, this skein is not for you! You will need two skeins in order to make a matching pair.

The picture below shows a sample of this colorway dyed up on our Cozy base from our original club dye batch, as well as a mock up of how the colorway may stripe in an adult sock (fingering) or mitt (DK) weight garment. (The pepperoni/sausage stripe is shown as a solid red, but it is dyed as a variegated red/brown.)

We are offering this colorway on three bases, shown below. Please make your yarn base choice from the drop down menu when ordering.

Bounce - 80/20 SW Merino/Nylon, fingering, 400 yards.
Bedazzled - 75/20/5 SW Merino/Nylon/Stellina, fingering, 438 yards. (discounted due to red speckling)
Bona Fide - 100% SW Merino, DK, 231 yards (discounted due to red speckling)

Note that the skeins on Bedazzled and Bona Fide ended up with moderate red speckling in the pepperoni/sausage stripe. While this fits in with the color profile of said meat toppings, it was not intended, so these skeins are being discounted slightly.

Recommended care: Though these are all superwash wools and can be machine washed, we recommend hand washing in cool water and then air dry flat.

All of our yarns and fibers are individually hand-dyed using professional grade acid dyes. Colorway names are consistent between yarns/fibers dyed with the same dye colors, however color strengths can (and likely will) vary between skeins and between different bases.

We make every effort to assure the colors in our photos are as accurate as possible, but please note that colors can vary from monitor to monitor.
