BACKORDERED! PLEASE DO NOT ORDER THIS SET UNLESS YOU AGREE TO WAIT FOR YOUR SET TO BE DYED AND SHIPPED. PLEASE CHECK MY SHOP ANNOUNCEMENT UNDER THE BANNER ON THE FIRST PAGE TO SEE WHAT THE CURRENT WAITING PERIOD IS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE. THIS SET IS WORTH WAITING FOR!

Gradation in 100% wool in 2-ply jumper weight (fingering yarn), which knits up at about 8 st/in on US 1-2 needles. This 109-gram set (493 yards) in my elegant New Zealand yarn gradates from a fuchsia tint to magenta with blue optical effects.

The dyes used for this set have fluorescent components that convert part of the UV spectrum, not normally detected by human vision, to the visible spectrum. (Fluorescence should not be confused with phosphorescence, which refers to objects emitting light after the light source is removed. This yarn does not glow in the dark.) When you sight along the axis of the yarn in daylight, there is a soft blue shimmering halo that surrounds the yarn. This is very subtle. Your finished project would not have bold optical effects, but, for those who are looking for it, there would be a soft, deep flicker of color shifts in the proper light.

The yarn is soft and lustrous and can be worn next to the skin by most. It resists pilling and drapes beautifully. It was milled exclusively for my gradated sets.

Please visit my “Profile” section to read the full story behind the yarn: how gradations are created, how they are used, and what physical properties the yarns and dyes have.
