SKU: N/A Categories: , ,


All gradients in this series start in a vivid jewel tone and seamlessly desaturate into darkness as you work.  This one way gradient starts out with intense crimson red, moves through almost aubergine, then fades to rich inky black. The red is fairly neutral, not too orange or purple.

This shawl skein gradient is mathematically weighted to begin with red, so that the color changes get longer and longer as you work outwards towards the black end.  You can absolutely start with black end, and then you will have lots of black and a little red at the end.  However, extra end yardage is available in both red and black in 25g or 100g increments so you don’t have to worry about running short, no matter what color you start with.

This extra long skein is perfect for crocheted shawls and large knitted pieces. If you require less yardage, a standard 150g skein might be a better choice. For even longer length, add some end yardage onto either (or both) ends.
