Yarn Hero’s ColorMix line is a unique dyed-in-the-wool yarn that works up into long gradients and/or stripes of color. Just as the name implies, ColorMix utilizes optical blending within the strand to create a wide range of color blends. Unlike hand-painted yarn, the colors will shift, marl, stripe, and shift back again. Each skein is a one-of-a-kind, even when from the same dye lot. It is suggested you make sure to purchase enough skeins for your project from the same dye batch, as colors can, and will vary from batch to batch. Due to the nature of how this yarn is dyed (kettle dyed first, then spun into yarn), color placement and intensity will vary between skeins, and within the skein itself.
It is hand dyed first and then spun into yarn at a local mill, resulting in a yarn that is light, airy, and bouncy. This yarn will squish and bloom depending on your gauge and knitting/crochet style. It's on the heavier side of DK weight, so the yarn also works well for some patterns calling for worsted, and needle sizes up to a US 9. ColorMix DK is super soft and perfect for all items including baby blankets and next-to-the-skin garments. Machine wash on cold, or hand wash.
