Our 2021 Pi Day colorway – Fungi Pi(e) is all about mushrooms, preferably the edible kind that you could literally put into a pie…or on your pizza, or into some creamy soup! I’m getting hungry….
Fungi Pi(e)‘s five stripes represent five varieties of colorful ‘shrooms. No need to go out and forage…we’ve got ’em right here!
Hen of the Woods (medium brown)
Pink Oyster (pink!)
Chanterelle (golden yellow)
Like all of our Pi Day colorways, the striping pattern is based on the numeric sequence of pi – 3.141592…, which is a non-repeating number. Thus, the stripe sequence does not repeat within the skein, and you will not be able to get a matching pair of socks (or anything) from a single skein. But if you’re a math geek, that’s part of the fun! We include a stitch marker affixed to the beginning of the sequence so you can start your project with the first Pi digit, if you’d like to!
The sample shown was knit in our Mountain Tweed BFL base, 60 stitches on US1 needles. Both photos shows skeins of Bounce and Mountain Tweed BFL.

Recommended care: Though these are superwash wools and can be machine washed, we recommend hand washing in cool water and then air dry flat.
All of our yarns and fibers are individually hand-dyed using professional grade acid dyes. Colorway names are consistent between yarns/fibers dyed with the same dye colors, however color can (and likely will) vary between skeins and between different bases.
We make every effort to assure the colors in our photos are as accurate as possible, but please note that colors can vary from monitor to monitor.
