Pattern Descriptions

There are two selections to make when you buy something from MoreSue – Color Combinations (or colorways), and Patterns – the pattern you choose will describe how the color is laid out on the fabric – as you can see below, the patterns vary with each garment, but are distinctive.  Please note that socks are only available in four patterns, as the more complicated patterns don’t work on socks.

We dye and “spin” each item by hand – so each and every item will be individual and unique. Because we hand dye your order when we get it from you, your finished item won’t look exactly like any example on this site.  Your selected design and colors will be used, and applied with care and intent – and each item will have subtle differences that make each piece we make a unique and beautiful piece of art.
