What weights of yarn can I choose from?
At the moment we have fade sets in both fingering and worsted weight.
How many options are there?
So many options! I'm dyeing up one-skein options and multi-skein fades.
One Way Trip: For both fingering and worsted weight, we have a One-Way trip version that transitions from green at one end, to blue, to purple at the other. Perfect for a cowl or hat!
Round Trip: Designed with matching socks in mind, the colours in the skein are mirrored, with purple at both ends, fading to blue, and then green in the middle. This is available in fingering weight only.
Multi-skein fades: There are five skeins in the full fade: green, blue-green, blue, blue-purple, and purple. Use all five together, or pick your favourite and combine it with a one-skein fade!
How do I make socks?
For matching fade socks, start with a skein of Wildflower Fade (Round Trip) in fingering weight. The colour pattern in this skein is mirrored, so you will want to start the socks from opposite ends of the skein. You can either use a scale to divide the yarn in two when you wind it, or simply work from the other end of the cake for the second sock.
You can, of course, also makes socks with any individual variegated skein from the fade set.
How do I make a hat?
For a colour changing Musselburgh Hat, start with a skein of Wildflower Fade (One Way Trip) in fingering weight. Cast on with whatever end is your favourite colour and follow the pattern as directed. For reference, used we used 3.5 mm (US 4) needles to achieve a gauge of 6 - 6.5 stitches per inch and found that creates a nice fabric with our Merino Twist yarn.
For a worsted weight fade hat, start with a skein of Wildflower Fade (One Way Trip) in worsted. Cast on with your favourite colour!
How do I make a shawl?
There are so many options! In fact, it's hard to give advice here because you can't possibly go wrong. A single skein of One Way Trip in fingering weight will create a beautiful flowing gradient. Any three skeins of worsted weight could work beautifully together.
How do I make a sweater?
Create your own sweater kit! Here are a few options:
Can I buy the fade skeins individually?
Yes! The skeins in the photo above are (from left to right) Wildflower E, D, C, B, A. They are all available individually.
