Glasgow-based dyer Sunshine of My Mama Knits has created a collection of 20 different colorways inspired by Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. They include, clockwise from top left, All Must Have Prizes, Hatter, Gryphon and Mad Tea Party. Colorways are available in superwash Merino DK and a sock weight blend of 75% wool/25% nylon, in single 100-gram skeins or multi-packs of mini skeins. On top of that, there are themed project bags and stitch markers available.

The folks at Bijou Basin Ranch have teamed up with yet another indie dyer, and this time they have gradients, ombres and self-striping colorways! The nine new colorways have been dyed by Minnesota-based ModeKnit Yarn and come in two bases: Bijou Bliss, a sportweight blend of Cormo and yak, and Tibetan Dream, a fingering-weight blend of yak and nylon.

The latest JOMA Yarn shop update has a new worsted Merino base and a new pattern. Kaleidoscope Supernova is a cowl or scarf that shows off this Canadian duo’s unique variegated colorways. The pattern, which uses a single skein of the worsted-weight Mashmellow Rino, is half off through the end of February.

Let the yarn do the work in this easy new sweater pattern from Lindsay of Knit Eco Chic. The Unique Sheep’s gradient eco yarn gives this basic top-down pullover some pizzaz. The pattern includes a yarn color changing guide. Lindsay notes that if you use a variety of solid yarns, the pattern creates a striping effect of differing, but flattering, widths.
