I was asked a few times about the yarn I used:

  • For the green-blue ones I used a very cheap variegated sock yarn bought at a discounter (it doesn’t even have a name, just “sock yarn”, sorry).

  • For the red-yellow-green ones, I used Schoeller+Stahl Fortissima Mexiko. I guess Noro sock would give similar results.
