WHAT IS A YARN Fade?
This fun knitting trend got a boost with Andrea Mowry's "Find Your Fade Shawl" and now there are many patterns (see patterns below) using a combination of 3 or more skeins of matched similar but varying colors that knit up to make a wonderful, self striping fabric. These Fade Kits feature Artyarns' beautiful multi-skein handpainted colorways and a free pattern download. For a wild look go for the Merino Cloud Neons or for a more subtle look look at our Limited Edition Joshua Tree Fade Packs with free pattern book.
Wait there's more! Gradient Kits = Fade Kits
Yes, Artyarns developed a "Gradient Kit" for some patterns, which is another name for a Fade Kit. Artyarns 6 skein Gradient Shawls and the 4 skein Gradient Shawl are 2 more examples of Gradient/Fade patterns. And there's also the Missoni Slip Stitch Sweater that combines a 6 skein Gradient Kit with a contrast color in Merino Cloud
Wow! So many choices!
Scroll down and choose between fibers Merino Cloud or Silk Mohair and number of color skeins (3-6) in your fade. Need patterns? We've got those too, matched up with your fade kit choice, and of course they're free with your yarn purchase.
