These sample yarn swatches will give you an idea of what to expect in your finished project. Please note that the color patterns on these swatches are just general suggestions and vary slightly for each colorway. The color pattern which emerges in your project will also depend on which stitch pattern(s) you use as well as the overall size of your finished project.

VARIEGATED YARNS

Here's what our variegated yarns look like once knit. Colors are applied randomly while dyeing and you’ll end up with a very colorful knitted fabric with occasional pooling depending on your project. If you wish to minimize pooling make sure to alternate yarns between rows for a more even appearance.
