ColorMix Active is a dyed in the wool 2-ply, DK weight yarn consisting of 100% Superwash Merino wool. It works up in a marled gradient fashion. Super soft for all items including baby blankets and next-to-the-skin garments. Last photo is to show you an example of how my yarns work up. It is a girl's size sweater, and is not included in this sale. ;)

Note: if there is a particular skein in the photo you want, please make a note of it when you check out and I will see if it is still available. If you are buying more than one skein of the same colorway, I will try to choose skeins that look the closet alike. If this is not your desire, please make a note. Thank you!


Yarn Hero's ColorMix line is a unique dyed in the wool yarn that works up into long gradients and/or stripes of color. Just as the name implies, ColorMix yarns use optical blending within the strand to create unlimited color blends. Unlike the usual hand-painted yarn, the color changes will work up into long bands of color, instead of short repeats. Colors will shift, marl, barber pole and shift back again. No pooling guaranteed! Each skein is a one-of-a-kind, even when from the same dye lot. No need to alternate skeins when working with multiple skeins on a large project!

Hand dyed by me in a smoke-free, yet pet friendly home.


A note about the milling process.
All ColorMix yarns are milled in a small, family-run US mini mill. This means that the yarns are created by hand in small batches on simple cottage industry equipment. Due to this, there will be small variances in the thickness of the yarn throughout the skein.
