Fadients

Fading ~ traditionally know as grading ~ colors is something we knitters are all over the moon about right now. We’re intrigued and excited about looking and using color in a more dynamic, less monotone way. So many designers are coming up with all kinds of stunningly creative ways to incorporate the movement of color from one end of the spectrum to another. Color shifts that can happen in many different ways; from light to dark within in a hue or moving from one part of the color wheel to another, as in moving from red to purple to blue, or moving from cooler to warmers hues, to name a few. One can do this in speckles, solids, multicolors and even self-striping and you can even combine them all as long is there is a connecting color theme.Truly, there are so many ways that color moves that the only thing that limit us is our own imaginations!
 
What you will find here are some of the groupings we've put together in a creative response to some pretty popular designs out there and designers, Joji Locatelli and Andrea Mowry, to name a couple. I believe Andrea made the term Fade popular with us knitters with her, fabulous Find Your Fade Shawl series of designs.
 
You can can order these colors separately, or you can can order them here as a grouping of 5 skeins with one click.
 
Right now we are offering these groupings in the following bases. When you click on the color grouping you want it will give you a choice of these 4 bases. Easy Peasy!
 
We will add more groupings as we have them.
