ABOUT THIS YARN:

* These are NOT hand-dyed by me, the thread is already dyed when I receive it

* 3 separate strands wound together to create a gradient as you work. They are NOT plied (twisted) like traditional yarn.

* There is a knot in one strand where each color change occurs. These can easily be worked into your pattern while you knit or crochet and should not affect your finished piece. Other knots may occur occasionally from the manufacturer.

* Wound into center-pull cakes. My preference is to work from the outside in, but either way is fine

* It does take some getting used to working with this yarn, but the results are stunning if you take your time and make sure to catch each strand as you work. Once you get used to working with it, you will not even notice it is unplied and will be back up to your normal working speed.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

PLEASE NOTE:

* Be sure to purchase enough yardage to finish your project

* While a similar colorway may be offered again, they may not be from the same dye lot. Please ask if you are unsure if a color is the same as a previously purchased item. Be sure to purchase enough for your project to be on the safe side.

* In some instances I may have small amounts from the dye lot I used left over and can get you some to finish a small section, but do not count on that, I cannot guarantee I will have them. Please contact me to check on availability.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CARE:

* Finished item can be machine washed and dried, but hand washing is recommended

* Some bleeding may occur, may be best to hand wash separately the first couple of times

* Hand washing also helps to keep the fiber from fading as fast

Additional policies

If you have any questions about my shop or items, please contact me. I try to respond as quickly as possible. I work M-F at my regular job from 8:30-5:30pm(EST) and may not be able to respond as quickly during those times.

I am happy to send out 3-yard samples upon request if you would like to see certain colors or thread types before you purchase.

I do accept requests/suggestions for custom colorways and have listings set up for standard 100g/133g balls of Gradient Tied Cotton, Gradient Speckle and Incremental Gradient Speckle. I enjoy experimenting, I enjoy working with others to create beautiful color combos. As long as you don't need something quickly (I work full time and I do this evenings and weekends) and you have a sense of humor...I am pretty easy to work with.

Wholesale is available for yarn shops, with a minimum purchase required. If interested, please contact me at brenda(at)brealythreads.com to receive information.

FAQs

GRADIENT TIED COTTON (GT):
3 strands held together changing one strand of color out at regular intervals to create a gradient effect. The colorway begins with a a solid run of a color (all 3 strands are the same color) and ends with a solid run of a color.

GRADIENT SPECKLE (GS):
4 strands held together changing one strand out at regular intervals to create a gradient effect; no solid runs of any color. The worked up colorway fabric takes on a tweed or speckle effect and offers a less harsh transition between color changes.

INCREMENTAL GRADIENT SPECKLE (IGS)
Same as GS except one strand of color changes out at increasing intervals to create a more equal gradient effect in triangle/crescent shape patterns where each row gets longer.
For your finished piece, I recommend a light soaking in a gentle detergent or soak made especially for delicate items. Items can be blocked.
As with any fiber, it is important to test if you are concerned with the color bleeding after you make your item. Test a small swatch and see how it reacts.
Red and darker colors are always at risk for bleeding, so I encourage you to test any fiber I sell if this is a concern.
Beginning June 15, 2018 these will no longer be offered as custom options in my shop due to moving and having smaller studio space. If/when I am able to get into a larger studio, I will consider offering these again at that time. All remaining pre-wound inventory will be available in the shop until it sells out.
