"What if we could make a sweater where, as the elbows and neckline stretched and wore over time, they changed color? What if we could create a yam like that?" GEEK was conceived from such a whimsical conversation.
The inner fiber and outer sheath are dyed separately in contrasting colors. The resulting fabric has a very interesting quality, subtly showing the color of the inner fiber, just as DARUMA had envisioned.
The name, GEEK, came from the futuristic, electric colors of the yarn. We hope that knitters around the globe will enjoy knitting with this unique yarn.
