This gradient sock blank runs from midnight blue to plum. The blank consists of two threads knit together. The result is two identical skeins which is useful especially for socks. You can knit from either end.
I recommend unraveling and winding into two balls. If you can wind or cake it up and keep each end free, you can decide later whether to start light or dark. Why not even do one of each?
If you do not like the yarn spaghetti you get when you unravel it, you can make it into two hanks (be careful to place ties judiciously in order that it doesn't get tangled), soak it and let it dry. This relaxes it a bit. You may notice a bit of a tweed look where there is a different degrees of color saturation.
