Gradient Yarns: A Spinner’s Study in Shifting Shades


“Gradient: the relative increase or decrease in the magnitude of a property.”

Yarns with long color changes that shift slowly from one end of the skein to the other are a great spinner’s challenge. There are many ways to design a gradient handspun yarn without using a dye pot. Join us as we explore four different methods for keeping colors distinct using painted tops, dyed batts, and a few blending tricks. Skills needed: Ability to spin and ply a basic yarn.
