The Choices, and What You Get
Single Semi-Solid Color: A semi-solid inspired by the most prominent color in this photo, on the yarn base you wish and in any quantity needed. (100g yarn each).
Bebe Surprise: (120g) A little bit of mystery is built into this playful 2-color sock kit. On the outside is a 100g main color inspired by this photo, while hidden inside you will find a mystery 20g semi-solid contrasting color created by our artists to to be perfect for an enchanting pair of socks.
2-Color Sock Kit (100g) Two 50g highly contrasting colors. One will be a very dark semi-solid, the other will be a light colorway with colorful speckles and splashes.
2-Color Brioche Kit: (200g) Two 100g highly contrasting colors. One will be a very dark semi-solid, the other will be a light colorway with colorful speckles and splashes.
3-Color Ocean Moon Kit: (300g) You will receive three colorways designed specifically for Ambah O'Brien's upcoming Ocean Moon MKAL (begins in April). The kit will feature one very dark contrast color inspired by the photo you see here, and two lighter coordinating colors with speckles.
Ocean Moon Gradient Kit (7-Colors) : (300g) You will receive seven gradient colorways designed specifically for Ambah O'Brien's upcoming Ocean Moon MKAL (begins in April). Two colors will be highly contrasting colors, one very dark and one very light (with speckles), each dyed on a 100g hank of yarn. The other five colors will be dyed on 20g mini hanks to create a gradient color bridge between the two 100g hanks of yarn.
3-Color Fade Palette: (300g) You will receive three colorways designed to fade beautifully as you knit. These colorways will play off of all of the colors in the inspiration photo but will not be overly busy.
5-Color Shawlography Kit: (500g) You will receive five colorways designed to work perfectly for Steven West's "Shawlography" pattern, or any similar multi-color shawl. Colors will be semi-solids and tonals in various contrasting strengths of color and complementary colors inspired by this photo. Tell us which shawl you plan to make and we will design your 5-color palette specifically for that pattern.
Our hand painted yarns are micro-brewed by individual fine artists. Variations between hanks reflect the beauty of these one-of-a-kind, artist creations. When you order multiple hanks in the same colorway, they are dyed in one batch and great care is taken to match hue, tint/shade, variegation, and sprinkles. Even with that, there may be some variations between hanks ... such is the nature of our fine art fiber products.
