CONTRAST SKIENS for Pastel Explosion Gradient Fade Advent Kits
Depending on the pattern that you choose to knit, you might want/need a contrast skein.
The contrast color that I'm recommending for this set is NAKED BRUCE yak merino. This is a gorgeous natural silver taupe color; if you don't like mixing bases and your set isn't on Bruce Yak Merino, my other suggestion for this set is Naked, just a simple creamy white on whatever base you chose for your set!
Pastel Explosion Gradient Fade
This kit will be a color gradient/fade of pastel pinks and corals and lavenders and blues and aquas. Please refer to the photo for my color inspiration.
The exact colors in this collection will be revealed as you unwrap your Advent kit each day, and the colors will be a gradient fade of semi solids and tonals and overdyes
PLEASE NOTE! This kit on Yak Merino will look VERY different from the same kit on any of the other bases. Yak Merino is naturally brown toned, and colors always show darker on Yak than on merino, but this will be especially noticeable with the pastels in this kit! If you want clear colors as you see them in the photo, go with a merino base, if you want the colors in the photo with a silver/taupe hue to them, and much more muted, go with Yak. I personally love pastels on the yak base, but they are distinctly muted!
Please note that this listing MUST be purchased separately from all other listings so that shipping calculates properly. Any combined purchases will be cancelled.
