Gradients and Ombres All Around: A New Club

I’ve been thinking over how to do a different club for the year and I decided that hand dyeing some gradient or ombre sock blanks would be a great way to have a fun club! I was thinking of calling it Gradients and Ombres from A to Z, when I remembered an alphabet book by Maurice Sendak called Alligators All Around. Mashing that up, I got Gradients and Ombres All Around.

You can buy a one month trial, a 3 month, 6 month or 12 month membership.
Subscribers can choose a one repeat, two repeat or four repeat pattern (four repeats is best for socks for people with small feet, one for shawls and two is pretty flexible.) The yarns are Terra Sock and Glitz. They are both superwash merino nylon blends, but Glitz gets some sparkle in it.

Gradients at Three Fates Yarns

We’ve got gradient kits over at Three Fates Yarns. I’ve taken my most popular colorways and turned them into gradient kits of 2.5 skeins/kit. The yarn is Terra Sock, a high-twist 3ply blend of Merino and nylon yarn. It’s wonderfully bouncy and durable. The put-up size is large which makes it very flexible. Other than making baby sweaters for twins, you can easily weave or crochet with this amount of yarn. It also makes wonderful shawls and cowls. Add a contrasting neutral like woodsmoke and you’ll have the perfect sweater.
