Sparkle Gradients and Stripes – Fresh From the Dyepot

Just listed, several new colors of blended gradients on Sparkle sock yarn (92% SW Merino, 8% Lurex….very sparkly!). What is a blended gradient? I specially wind the yarn (NOT a knit blank, so no annoying kinks), then hand paint it, blending the colors at the transitions. When knit, the transitions are not sharp, but rather blur between, making a painterly look. I’ve included a pic of one of my shawls as an example of the effect.

I also have a self striping Christmas yarn on the same base.

All available at!
