Now available as a Dye to Order gradient in your choice of quality luxury yarn base. You choose your preferred base and weight/length.
I recently offered to make a gradient to match a very pretty sunflower dress and whilst the owner of the dress did not take me up on my offer the idea has been floating around my head ever since. Here is the result of all that thought! Ranging from a soft warm toffee colour, through different yellows and soft sages through to olive greys and onto a dark charcoal grey at the furthermost end. If you wish to have your gradient end in a deep umber brown then there is a customisation area below.
Optional end skeins are now being offered under a separate listing HERE
Gradients are a work of artistry and not something off a production line so please expect some minor variations, it's one of the beauties of natural fibres and a hand produced product.
