Fourth photo shows the difference in how each option works up (shown in the Spanish Mission colorway). Finished shawl is not included in the listing and is shown for comparison purposes only. Pattern used for samples is Dangling Conversation by Mindy Ross and can be found here: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/dangling-conversation (pattern not included with purchase)

Options (select at checkout):
* GRADIENT SPECKLE (GS): 4 strands; All color runs are the same yardage throughout. There are never 4 strands all the same color (no solid runs). Can be worked from center-pull or from outside of yarn cake.

* INCREMENTAL GRADIENT SPECKLE (IGS): 4 strands; Works especially well for triangular scarf/shawl patterns to have an even distribution of each color run as the size increases. Small yardage start (at least 2 yards, depending on the number of colors used in a colorway) from the center, increasing incrementally with each color change. There are never 4 strands all the same color (no solid runs). NOTE: The center-pull color will be your starting color to achieve the incremental increase effect.

!!! UH OH... THE OPTION YOU WANT ISN'T AVAILABLE ???
If the option you want is sold out, send me a note and I can wind one up for you. As long as all of the colors used in a colorway are in my supply coffer, it's not a problem! I can't always keep up with each version as they sell out. Thanks!

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.
Wholesale is available to yarn shops with a minimum purchase requirement. Please contact me to get details.
