• Now available as a dye to order gradient in your choice of quality luxury yarn base. You choose your preferred base and weight/length.

    The Mermaids Tale is a gradient version of my regular yarn Mermaids Tale yarn colour and lends itself to a very rich unique gradient. On silk the effect is slightly more subdued (third photo) - The green end is slightly more intense than the photo shows and the blue end slightly more indigo. It's a lovely gradient and I'm going to use the one shown here in a Booknits shawl - Last Dance.

    The choice of base can affect the colours slightly.
