One of my very favorite lace weight yarns, Ling is a blending of cultivated silk (think shiny and strong) and superwash merino (think soft and with memory).
Fiber Content: 50% Superwash Merino, 50% Silk.
Here we offer a Gradiance set of five one-ounce skeins, gradually changing colors . Gradiance is a new word that Kelly coined, as a mix of Radiance and Gradient --- hence the apparent (but not) mis-spelling. What it is is a gradual blending of yarn colors through a number of individual skeins.
The idea is that your project will gradually change from one hand painted color to the next. When working with Gradiance sets it is important to alternate skeins when switching from one successive skein to the next so the color change is almost seamless.
Aurora Borealis colorway is one of the ones we have specially worked with The Unique Sheep on, and is exclusive to Earth Faire.
I found this stunning photo (shown on this page) that depicts the northern lights of the Aurora Borealis so beautifully. I admit to never having seen this sky display "in real life" but the colors just struck me as so lovely, I had to contact Kelly to get it all put together for us. And she did an amazing job. A gradual transition from bright green into the introduction of more and more blues -- the set is a stunning peacock meshing of hues.
The current sets we can offer here are 6-skein sets with a marvelous total yardage is thus a generous 6 x 312 yards = 1872, enough for so very many beauties.
A real beauty to create with.
