Item details

>>>>> This set will be dyed to order.
Please allow 1-2 weeks to get your order dyed up and ready to ship! Dyed to order sets will be *very similar* to the photo shown: the same shades in the same order; but will still have their own unique variation due to the beautiful unpredictability of the flow of liquid dyes.


Colourway: "Sailing among the Stars" (pink to purple to royal to aqua)

Available in two sizes:
>> 4 oz/115g six-skein set, 345yds/378m
>> 6 oz/172 g six-skein set, 567 yds/518 m

>> 2-ply, lofty, low twist fingering weight
>> 70% superwash merino, 30% silk

>>Although superwash is said to be machine washable, I recommend gently hand washing your finished knit separately (silk sometimes releases dye for the first few washes) and laying flat to dry.


I'm super excited about these gradient sets. I love all the beautiful solid gradients, colourshifts and monochromatic ombres around the knitosphere, but I didn't see much that is truly tonal or variegated. I don't know about you, but I would rather not spend months (and big bucks) searching for half a dozen random skeins that work together perfectly--so I came up with a way to do it myself!

These gradient sets are dyed in one pot, and I lay the colours down one by one so they blend nicely and all skeins coordinate. I do each set individually, so each is totally unique, and the silk content gives the yarn incredible depth of colour and a lovely lustre. The loose two-ply construction also means that this yarn is soft, light, super bouncy, and looks much plumper than your usual fingering weight...and remember, two-ply yarns just sing in lace patterns!

Ditto what I said for my last review - the care and attention and extras that Nikki included are delightful and the yarn is beautiful :-) Thanks so much!
