Patons Kroy Sock FX is a marled gradient yarn. The strand of yarn is comprised of multiple plies of yarn that transition through different colourways at different rates. Once knitted, the fabric has a gradient effect with an amazing depth of colour!
Patons Kroy is ideal for socks, gloves, and fine garments. We find it to be a slightly heavier sock yarn, so you may want to go up a size from your regular sock needles (Glenda uses 2.5mm needles with this yarn, instead of her usual 2.25mm).
This yarn comes in 50g balls so you will need 2 to make an adult sized pair of socks. Due to the way the balls are wound, it can be difficult to make the colour repeats match on your two socks. Please account for extra yarn if you want to make identical socks - you may have to wind off a section of one ball to make it match the starting point of the other ball.
