Frequent question: How do you make a yarn fade?

How do you fade cotton yarn?

Hand wash cotton yarn in cold water with a mild clothing detergent. Machine-washing the cotton yarn can fade colors faster. Soak the cotton yarn for five minutes in the cold water. Add the amount of soap recommended on the package and wash gently for 10 minutes.

Does yarn bleed when washed?

Mild bleeding is common in all hand dyed yarn and if you have a skein with a ridiculously bright color, super dark colors, or speckles, play it safe by rinsing the skein in cold water and some wool wash (a small amount of dish washing liquid works too) and let it dry.

What does gradient yarn mean in knitting?

Gradient yarns are skeins or cakes that gradually fade from one color to the next, either tonally or into other hues, saving you from weaving in color change ends! Gradient kits are generally a tonal collection of hanks or skeins that allow you to customize how you blend your gradients.
