Actual yarn color may vary based on your monitor or device. Hand-dyed yarns may vary from skein to skein; consider alternating skeins on large projects.

Tea Cakes are made from the same yarn base as our Painted Ladies line, except that they are dyed from a sock blank for a fun tie-dyed or gradient effect. Each one is unique.  Skeins may be wound in the opposite color order to the photos shown.
Tea Cake sock yarn is a 4-ply Superwash Merino base that is super soft but with the perfect amount of nylon to help keep your garment's shape. Perfect for socks, shrugs, lovely shawls, and even sweaters. This yarn is perfect for all your projects.

Please note that no two skeins are alike, but within the same dye batch, they will be similar enough for larger garments.
