Knitcircus dyers love coming up with new ways to dye yarn. Impressionist Gradients combine the fun of Speckled Handpaints and Gradient cakes into one! You get the excitement of pops of different colors with each new stitch while the overall color shifts like a gradient. Show off a simple shape the like Aeque cowl shown in Imaginary Best Friend, the most popular gradient. Browse the Impressionist Colorways gallery on the website or visit the brick-and-mortar store in Wisconsin to pet the yarns in person.
