------------------------------------

Sweetie Pi(e) is the latest colorway in our Pi series of yarns. It was first featured in our 2017 Pi(e) of the Every (Other) Month Club, and now we're offering it for the first time in the shop, just in time for Valentine's Day!

Inspired by the different “flavors” of love, the striping colors were drawn from the traditional meanings behind the colors of that most popular flower of love, the rose:

Red: Love
Light Pink: Sweetness
Peach: Gratitude
Dark Pink: Appreciation
Purple: Enchantment

The picture shows this colorway dyed up on our Bedazzled base, as well as a graphic representation of how this colorway will stripe up.

As with all of our Pi(e) colorways, the size of the stripes are relative to the digits in pi sequence (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.

Note: Due to the process required to produce this striping pattern, with multiple colors dyed in close proximity, and some strands needing to cross over others out of pattern, occasional color bleeds between neighboring colors may be present. This is a naturally occurring element of this colorway and not a defect.

We are currently offering this colorway as a pre-order on the following bases:

Bounce, fingering, 80/20 SW Merino/Nylon, 400 yards
Bedazzled, fingering, 75/20/5 SW Merino/Nylon/Stellina, 438 yards
Traveler, sport, 80/20 SW Merino/Nylon, 328 yards

Recommended care: Though this is a superwash wool 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.
