Colour Shift Project | In Stock

The Colour Shift Project orginally began as a personal project; to see how dyes and coloours play and interact together on yarn.

The Project is quite simple, but also very precise! Each colourway is dyed with the same weight of yarn, same weight of dye powders and same volume of water.  Sometimes this provides strong, even colours but sometimes it provides a more subtle, tonal colour.  Its all very much a fun experiment!

I have taken 10 different dyes and dyed yarns combing these dyes together, two at a time, with one colour on each row (A-J) being use alongside the ten dyes in turn (1-10).  This produces a grid of 10x10 colourways (100 total), all being different!

Sometimes the colours are drastically different, and sometimes more subtle.  It all depends on the strength of the dyes being used.

The sets are sold as 10 Mini Skeins (on different bases), all individually labelled to show you where they sit on the grid (A1-A10, B1-B10 etc).

If you imagine a graph with axis, the numbers 1-10 go along the horizontal and letters A-J along the vertical.  When you put yours together just make sure that all they are kept in their rows (A, B and so on) and they sit in numerican order (left to right). Please see the rough graphic for more of an idea - but please be aware that this shoes an idea and is not representative of colours.

OR just use them as you like!

 

In total there will be TEN sets of TEN minis.

CARE INFORMATION

Dyed using professional dyes and processes and painted by hand. As a result, no two skeins are identical although they are dyed in batches.

Every attempt has been made to remove all excess dye from the yarn, however a little may remain - particularly with dark or vivid colours. Therefore, I always advise that you handwash your items alone. Reshape whilst damp and dry flat.

Colours may vary between viewing monitors. Please do not place 100% reliance on the image that you see as being a full reflection of the yarn. Please convo me if you would like more information.
