You have never met a yarn like this.

Lux XL is our line of plant-based extra long gradients in fingering weight yarn. Glowing, rich, saturated color hand dyed with care in a smooth, seamless gradient. Lux works up effortlessly to make any project special.

This Mermaid colorway shifts slowly from lively chartreuse green to soothing turquoise. The gradient is designed to start at the green end, and finish with turquoise. The color runs get longer as your rows would get longer; there is proportionally more turquoise yardage than there is green. You can flip the gradient to start at the turquoise end, but additional green end yardage is suggested. For more information on how to flip a gradient, click here.

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

Choose from a variety of high quality base yarns in Tencel® (lyocell), bamboo, and cotton.
