Fresh from the Dyepot – Gradients on Merino and Black Silk

Oh my, have I got a treat for you! Creamy merino wool blended with streaks of black tussah silk, and then dyed in bright gradients. Mmmm, mmm. They look like watercolors over charcoal drawings, such a neat effect.

Tropical Rainbow is a short length repeating gradient….all those bright colors from pink to purple.

Xanadu (Turquoise to Royal to Purple to Magenta):

And finally….Yellow to Scarlet (with yellow-orange and orange and red-orange in between!):

I recommend spinning this blend from the fold, it will help you keep the fibers together and preserve the cool marled look.  All of these are in the shop in the Limited Edition Fiber section.  Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend.  We are hoping to not be buried under 6-8 inches of snow!
