This gradient yarn in gray brown has been a challenge to name and to photograph because it looks different in every light. It is somewhere between gray and taupe, very smoothly gradated and simply elegant.

I have been working with color for so long and so intensely that I was surprised to fall under the spell of this unassuming color formula. I have not loved a color this much for years. It is both subtle and striking. I have been trying to photograph the yarn under different qualities of light and finally decided that even if I could capture this elusive color with my camera, there would be no guarantee that what you see on your monitor is the same. Some photos make it appear more brown, others more gray. It is that way in real life, too. Color perception changes with the light and the surrounding colors.

This set is neutral without being ho-hum. It is smoky and earthy but very sophisticated. It could carry a simple design like herringbone and be handsome for either gender of wearer. The mottled effect, like wood grain, is not pronounced enough to interfere with a design.

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.
