Great Ideas: Five Skein Fades

faded fades fading fading point knitting fade so faded yarn fade

Have you been swept up in the Fade madness? Patterns like The So Faded Sweater by Andrea Mowry or Fading Point by Joji Locatelli need five beautiful skeins of yarns that can fade from one to another without big jumps in color. The closer the fades, the better!

These first kits are from JOMA Yarns, a Canadian hand-dyeing company run by Emjay, who paints her yarns by hand to create their beautiful layered appearance. Because these kits are all from the same dyer, the colors are consistent. JOMA kits are made up of two sock bases: Sock-a-Rino, which is a merino/nylon mix, and Baby Blue Face, a BFL/nylon mix. They all run $120 for five generous skeins.
