Pi Day Self-Striping (5) - Bounce

$28.00

This is a skein of our original Pi Day colorway! The stripes correspond to the following pie flavors:

Key Lime (lime green)
Peach (peach)
Chocolate Cream (medium brown)
Strawberry Rhubarb (dark pink)
Apple (ecru)

As in 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. The second picture shows a representation of how this colorway stripes through the first sixteen stripes.

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 with the Alarming Licorice (black) color, the first in 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 used in dyeing this colorway, there are occasional minor color bleeds during dyeing from neighboring colors. This is an unavoidable element in this colorway and not a defect. However, some of the skeins in the bases marked with an * are being discounted due to greater than usual color abnormalities within one or more stripe segment.

This colorway is currently available on our Bounce base, fingering weight, 80/20 SW Merino/Nylon, 400 yards.

Recommended care: Though these are 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.
