The darkness and beauty of a winter's evening inspired the colors of this fade set. Shadows of trees, the last blue of a night's sky, a glimpse of pine; all these colors are in the twilight of a Snowy Evening.
For this fade set we dyed three full-sized skeins that fade from a darkened blue with bits of violet to a skein with hints of grayed green, to those same colors with some deeper charcoal colors. The colors blend very subtly through all the skeins making a true fade set.
There is enough yarn here to make a large and cozy shawl. Two sets could make a sweater. Can you imagine? It would be beautiful to knit with the colors fading one to the next. So many possibilities.
Please know that this is a one-of-a-kind set and it cannot be repeated. If you like it, get it quick, because once they're gone, they're gone.
DK Yakity Yak is such a soft, smooth, round yarn that it is a personal favorite. We've made shawls, sweaters, hats, and even socks with this yarn. It works up quickly because of the DK weight. The color is rich and deep with a silvery undertone. It also has great stitch definition and shows off textured knits well. We've used this yarn in many of our kits and our customers love it. It could possibly be the world's most perfect yarn!
Our variegated colors are hand-painted in small batches. We use a random dye process that creates a yarn that is unlikely to pool or stripe. What you see in the skein is very much how the colors will blend in your finished fabric.
We recommend hand washing in warm water and laying flat to dry to ensure the best care for your project.
