These yarns start as machine knit blanks and were hand-dyed with long stretches of one color. Being dyed like this allows smooth shade and hue transitions from one color to another. Please let me know in the notes if you'd prefer a cake. To knit from them uncaked, you need to know there is only one end that is workable. The other is stitch-locked, just like your knitting.
