April 22: Hi. This colourway flew off the shelves this morning and I'm all sold out now. I can't take pre-orders right now, but I will restock in a couple weeks. Thank you!
Please note: There is a lot of variation between dye lots in these colour studies. Today's batch is similar to the one in the first photo.
We've recently upgraded our dyeing process and did a lot of colour mixing tests to see how the colours play together. I posted a little about it here and here. There was such an enthusiastic response to these fun swatches that I decided to some for the shop.
Each skein has three sections: two matching striped gradients and one solid grey section. One skein is enough for a matching pair of socks or the gorgeous Bobble Cowl in the final image.
The second image shows one twisted skein lying beside a second skein that has been wound into three separate cakes. The third image shows a full skein lying above a knitted sample of one of the two matching gradients.
We sell regular and XL skeins:
115 g (4 oz) is a standard skein
170 g (6 oz) is 1.5 times a standard skein
More more detail, see our base yarns.
Our photos are intended to capture the overall feel of the colourway, but our dye lots do vary. Look here for more info about our yarn, including a description of our base yarns.
