I've been wanting to try knitting from a sock blank, and this one was a perfectly geeky choice. The colors are really vibrant, and I'm excited to work with it!

As always, Liz has beautiful yarns and this yarn is no exception! She is one of my favorite gradient dyers and I'm so glad to have access to her store here on etsy.

If you give a mouse a cookie....
For anyone who's read that children's story, you'll immediately understand. I started knitting because I was an intern at a mental health counseling center, and I needed something small and portable to keep me occupied. But I loved it too much to stop there. Soon I started designing my own projects, when nothing already out there was just right. Then I wanted to learn how to write patterns, and not long after that I was officially a knitting pattern designer!
But as a designer, I'd get frustrated by the dearth of yarns that suited my vision for a particular design...and I realized that if I dyed my own, I could always have access to the perfect yarn for my pattern ideas. So in 2010 I started seriously learning how to dye yarn, and the dyeing side of Apple Tree Knits was launched in May 2012.
Since then I've added an enormous range of Gradients and new resist-dyed colors to compliment the original kettle-dyed colorways. And the yarn bases have expanded and diversified - I'm particularly proud of the range and combination of fibers available through ATK.
But other things haven't changed since this whole thing started, and they never will. Customer satisfaction is still the absolute top priority, and in that vein I take quality control and customer service very seriously. And we'll always specialize in top-notch professional dyeing - we've become a standard-bearer in the highest quality, smoothest Gradient dyeing.
There's always a new chapter being written here at Apple Tree Knits, so make sure to check in regularly to see what's new!
Owner, Maker, Designer
I'm the two hands behind Apple Tree Knits. I became completely obsessed with knitting a few years ago, and that's blossomed into this little operation here. When I'm not dyeing or knitting, I'm playing with our 5 rescues and/or drinking coffee :-)
All yarn is dyed by hand (my two hands, actually!) in very small batches using professional, eco-friendly dyes and labor-intensive techniques. Most colorways are repeatable, so if you see something you like but it's sold out or you'd like it on a different yarn, please contact me. I also love to do custom colorways, please feel free to message me so I can help you create your perfect yarn!

Yarn may be returned for any reason within 30 days of purchase, provided it is still in original condition (in original skein or ball form, has not been unwound or used, has original skein band, does not smell of smoke, etc.) and provided the buyer contacts me and obtains a return number. Items sent without a return number will not be accepted, and no refund will be issued; likewise no refund will be issued for items that are not in original condition. The buyer is responsible for return postage.
If a buyer believes their yarn is defective in some way they should contact me immediately regardless of when the purchase occurred, so we can work to correct the problem.
