Gradated yarn set in from delicate to saturated violet. Like its namesake flower, this violet needs special treatment. It can fade under prolonged UV exposure, so it is not suitable for projects like afghans and tapestries that will be left out in the sunlight. I have a number of other purples that are stable in UV light, but I have never found one that I like as much as this one, so I have kept it in my inventory. I have used it in nearly everything I design. I simply store the garments in the closet when not in use, so I've not had fading problems.

Your gradated set in six skeins will be dyed to order for you in ColorShift Merino wool. This is a 2/8 fingering weight (jumper weight) yarn that knits up at about 8 st/in on US 1-2 needles. Milled exclusively for ColorShift from 23.5 micron superwash Merino, it is lustrous, smooth, soft, bouncy, elastic, drapes nicely, can be enjoyed next to the skin, resists pilling and shrinking, blocks easily and retains its shape. It can be doubled for a DK weight and color blending by changing only one strand at a time.

Each skein is 160 yards/146 meters. The total yardage of the set is 960 yards/877 meters.
